Most parents say kids today are much luckier. Because of the media and technology kids’ life are simpler and easier. But are they really luckier than the kids 30 or 40 years ago?
When we went to Cavite for a family outing and reunion last week, I was glad that we finally breathe fresh air. There were rice fields and greeneries along the way to the beach. RJ was glad to see cows and goats. She even counted the cows and proudly said she saw 21 of them.
Poor RJ, she seldom sees farm animals because there are only cats and dogs in our neighborhood. So when we pulled over near the field with cows, we grabbed the chance and asked me to take pictures. It was RJ’s first encounter with cows.
When I was a kid, there were greens everywhere. We rode cows and carabaos. We even drink fresh milk. We climbed trees, got out of the house, made our own games, got along with other children and had fun. How I miss my childhood!
Maybe kids’ life now are much simpler and easier but life then was cooler and healthier.
