Gregg over at My Job Chart shared an article about the book The Demise of Guys and the alarming trends about guys and technology. It’s quite sobering when you think about it. Like Gregg, we have four boys to raise and we want to raise them to be responsible adults, not game junkies.
We’ve used media to motivate our boys to work, they seem to need more motivation than our girls ever did. Either that or else our memories are very poor! But we limit the amount of time we give them on the computer, games and watching movies.
One of the many reasons we moved to the country was to create more work for our children…say what?! I can hear some of you screaming, but it’s true. We want our children to know how to work hard, be responsible and be high functioning adults. Not lazy, not gamers etc. but able to provide for a future family. After all God made work and regardless of what many may think work is good. Just look at where He put Adam and Eve after he created the, in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it.
Take a good look at this infographic…
What does it reveal to you? Do you see a problem trending towards the demise of guys because of technology and other unhealthy internet use? (Do not want to even use the term for fear of who it will bring to my website!) Leave my your thoughtful comments!
