I am a concerned parent. Like many others around me. Concerned about the way my kid sits glued to the ipad screen and the TV screen and continuously forgets about the world around her.

I want to raise an Activity Kid. I want her to develop thinking skills, problem solving skills, be aware of the real world and it’s problems and have focus. I donot think it is too much to ask. But it is too much of a task to get the kid’s attention away from the temptations that technology offers.

Technology is an aid, a gift and will lead to many improvements in the kid’s life. But there is a need for more hands-on activities in the life of my kid. Let me start to build a foundation of  games, activities, travel and fun in a nurturing environment. Hope you follow along.
