    Children these days are getting themeselves into the mantle of a robotic lifestyle. Instant gratification mentality is the buzzword to describe their character. Thanks to the huge influence of modern technology that has brought about this change. I have been in the field of teaching for many years. Nowadays,Very few children  are venting  out their aesthetic sense though stories and poems.
    What are your views.

      This is probably best posted in the topical forums. There is a specific Family and Parenting one: http://hubpages.com/forum/11

      The HubPages and Community forums is really for HubPages related subjects.

      I think a lot of children express their creativity and imagination through the technology that is now available to them. To us, it doesn't look the same as what we experienced as children; they are sitting at a screen, or using a handheld device, but they are still exploring.

    The parents of this new generation have a big responsinbliity: to record the results of technology in their children's lives honestly and carefully. They must observe!
