    I think today's electronic games and television has made kids lazier. Their involvement in outdoor activities has decreased.

    Yes. They would rather play online games and update their facebook status than play outdoor games or sports!

    100%. kids these days have no idea what being active is about. some kids do, but far too many live their lives in a fantasy world and i think it is going to hurt them in the future.

    Absolutely, but I don't blame the kids as much as the parents that let it happen.  Parents are the captain of the ship so-to-speak and they need to step up and put limits on the vidiot entertainment.

    Not only has it made kids lazier, but it has completely changed the definition of childhood.  There are kids that don't even know what the game of tag is.  We could blame the parents but there is an acceptance in our society of media being OK for kids.  As a parent I work very hard to keep my kids away from media but kids are drawn to it, it is a daily battle.  Many parents don't realize the negative effects of sitting still for such long periods when the body really needs to move to develop properly.

    Yes in terms of health. With the current technology of computer's world, children are less active as they will simply sit and play games or other stuffs with the computer. This can occupy the entire day as they can go without lunch or dinner.

    They will be lack of exercise activities so it is not healthy. With this said, I believe we should have a balance of activities so that they will not be lazy to do exercises for fitness.

    Yes!  Not only would I say that they are lazier but it also has effected their communication skills.  Kids now a days seem to hide behide their text messaging and facebook rather then talking to someone face to face.

    Yes physically lazier. Issuing chores could probably help them physically. Outdoor and indoor chores.

    My answer is yes, but the parents is responsible for this. Kids are addicted in computer games and other technology related. They should play games more in the outside where fresh air is available. It will make them sharper and intelligent.

    Physically lazier yes, but more efficient when faced with the task of finding new information, and or researching a certain topic for school or something educational.
