I take regular morning or afternoon walks around our river. I often see mums and bubs out and about, also walking however, I’m constantly amazed about how many children I see in prams holding and watching some sort of screen. I just figure that if you’re outside shouldn’t you be looking and admiring nature instead of being glued to the screen? Just my thoughts.

  • yes you are spot on … there is so much more to look at and enjoy.


  • An all to common sight and it is sight!


  • I wholeheartedly agree with you and wrote a similar piece a while back about a parent giving their child a device instead of letting them explore a dinosaur touch and feel display; which was the whole point of the display! There is so much wonder to see and explore when you are out and it develops imagination too! I agree, put the devices away! We have a ban on devices at certain times!
