laughing lioness Posted June 8, 2009 Share Posted June 8, 2009 well, maybe not YOUR kids. Anyone else notice how kids don't actually make eye contact when they talk "to you" anymore? Too busy texting. Don't actually TALK to people any more?? Went to friends house for dinner last night. 2 older boys (one a college grad, one a Sr. in h.s.) playing a computer game. We come in, they don't look up, acknowledge the 6 of us entering in ANY way. The parents are really friendly but the kids don't even act like we are there. We have our 18 yo with us. NO interaction with her AT ALL (she is a knock-out). They had their faces in their game. We ate dinner together- again, the kids didn't say "hi", didn't interact during dinner with our family at all except to say they likedthe kind of pie I brought. One of the boys was texting throughout dinner. The kids didn't pass the food. Didn't say ONE WORD to my dd the entire evening. Said "hi" to one of our pastor's wives as church. She said "hi" but didn't even look up- didn't even know who she was talking too becasue she was too busy texting on a Sun. morning. ACK. Another friend sent her kids to p.s. last year for the first time and after 9 months her kids are communicating almost soley through texting. She said it's like there's never even any one else in the room. Her son won't have friends over because they don't have x-box or Wii and "hiking's boring" (they just moved to the Pike's Peak area) so he hangs out on the computer all.day.long. Honestly, I feel like our kids are freaks becasue they aren't mainlined to electronics. And honestly, I feel like telling some of these people how.very.rude.they.are.
