Tagged Tuesday: I’m glad I’m not a kid in 2014

Tagged Tuesdays

Tagged Tuesdays originated at Anni’s Bubble and is is a fun, engaging post for bloggers to connect, share and reinvent themselves. Each week bloggers will be given a specific topic to write about and we encourage readers to visit the blogs, comment and share. This week I decided to participate.

When Anni told me what the topic is this week I must admit I made the totally clueless face. What in the world do I have to say about not wanting to be a kid in 2014?

Eureka!

  1. A pack of gum today costs as much as a sandwich did in early 1970s.
  2. Recess is NOT an automatic part of the day now.
  3. Gym is only fun and games. When I was growing up we were actually taught how to play sports in gym.
  4. If I were a kid now I’d be terrified to go anywhere alone. (How many registered sex offenders reside in and around your neighborhood?)
  5. Education is more about stats and preparing for mandated testing than expanding the curriculum and a child’s mind. I don’t think I’d get as much out of learning as I did in the 80s.
  6. There’s too much playing indoors and not enough exploration and creativity. (Of course, I wouldn’t want to go outside now anyway. See #4)

That about covers it for now. Tell me, why are you glad you’re not a kid in 2014?
