Do people not go outside anymore??

Why does it seem that people don't go outside anymore, don't socialize with neighbors, and kids don't play outside. In my neighborhood, everyone uses an automatic garage door opener, they drive right in, close the garage door and rarely go outside...even weekends are quiet around here. So sad! Is this the norm now in most neighborhoods?

  • No, it is not the norm. I take my daughter outside to play in the front almost every afternoon, and my whole neighborhood is very active. We socialize, have bbq's every so often, watch each others houses when someone goes out of town, etc. etc.

  • people love their technology! it's all about video games and computers and reality tv! i cant wait to have my baby so i can take him outside to play and when he gets old enough i can teach him how to go fishing and camping.

  • And the point of this question is to tell how wonderful a mother YOU are because you don't do those things?? Get over yourself.
