A Different Kind of Social Networking

When I was younger we had a
different kind of "social networking"

It was called
"playing outside and making friends"

I hear you, Dave!!!

All of this modern technology is wonderful to have around, but we should also never forget how to "network" the old-fashioned way and include it in how we live our lives!

It's like how you always hear about kids going to playgroup instead of hearing about a group of kids getting together and playing in a spontaneous sort of way.

The idea of playgroups and playdates--at least, on a regular basis--has a kind of artificial feel about it to me.

I agree with you 100%! It's not natural - let the kids go out and find other kids that they like and want to play with; don't force them to hang out with your pre-selected 'friends' at pre-arranged locations, dates and times!
