my children will do it differently

We have all heard the stories from our parents " When i was your age we had to ... " " When i was your age.." you get my drift. But my all time favourite " When i was your age we wouldn't talk to our parents like that ".

Nowadays we have so many different uses of media and technology that weren't available when our parents were our age. Mobile Phones, Pay T.V, the internet etc. were not yet introduced to the society, and they had no idea what the future had in store for them. Little did they know that they were going to enter a world defined by media and technology. I spend a lot of time thinking about the future and what it holds for me. And it scares me, the whole growing up being someone, getting married having kids :') it sounds silly now, but as most people know that time flies by. And the most important thing that scares me is what will the world up to before i am a parent? I've always wanted to meet the perfect guy, get married have kids and be able to watch them grow up. Although its still really early to be thinking about these things sometimes my mind just tends to wonder off. I can only imagine the future when my family sit around the table teaching our children about the olden days.

My children might ask me what television was like, and why our cars went so slow. They might ask me why Marijuana was illegal and why people got put into prison for murder. They will ask me why the drinking ages was eighteen. I know the world is going to be advanced in many different and positive ways ( hopefully anyway) but there will also be some negative aspects. can imagine crime becoming more prominent in society, and young children disrespecting their parents quite freely and openly. Swear words will be incorporated into the English language and will no longer be “taboo”.

ll I can do now is sit and wait to see what the future holds… Actually that’s not true. I can change it. We all can.
