I saw this picture on my Instagram and I immediately had to take a double look at it. At first I didn’t quite understand what it was trying to say. But as I read some of the comments I began to sort out the deeper meaning that this picture was conveying. This picture is depicting the shift that we are seeing in the next generation. Children are becoming more and more content to stay indoors and experience life though a screen; they are missing out on creating their own memories and are now exploring the world through social media. Growing up outside I know that it is impossible to fully experience something unless you live through it yourself. Our experiences define who we are, therefore; it is key to insure that children are having solid experiences so that they may develop a strong sense of self. I believe that this picture is truly speaking out against the loss of play and exploration that our next generation is experiencing. It is sad, but true; it is up to us to monitor the ways in which children are using ever advancing and available technology.
