Kids today...

So this probably doesn't deserve its own thread but something happened tonight that I wanted to share.

My partners daughter is 14 (we'll call her Emma) and her dad is about to take her to France for a few nights. Unfortunately on Friday afternoon Emma dropped her iPhone down the loo and despite trying rice and silica gel it hasn't come back on.

Anyways tonight Enma was quite upset that it looks like she won't have her phone in Paris and wouldn't be able to take photos while she was there. We tried the whole "it'll be a fab experience" and "you'll love it Anyways" angle but she wasn't having any of it. Anyways we then suggested that we should charge up the digicam for her to take.

She looked slightly aghast by the mere idea and said "why would I want to take the camera?"

Apparently since you can't snapchat / Instagram from the digicam they're not real photos and don't really count. She added that we obviously didn't understand too which was a really nice touch and made me feel like my dad

Gotta laugh at the younger generation...

Anyways so anyone else have any similar stories about how kids today have a crazy view on the world?

Yes. My kids desperately wanted to remain in the EU because of the impact it has on their lives once they leave Uni. They believe that 99% of the problems we have are domestically created and took the view that although the EU isn't perfect we have still benefited greatly by being a member and we can improve things by being in it influencing as long as we have the right domestic government.

Old ****ers disagreed even though they won't live long enough to see things through. Those crazy kids eh?

My kids think that the entire Palace squad live in a shed at the bottom our local recreation ground.

Though they are five. Also, their dad told them that was the case a year ago, whilst they were on the swings looking down at it, wondering what it was all about.

Blame the adults. They invented the technology. Blame the adults. They're causing all the wars. Blame the adults. They act like children.

Kids are just doing their thing in 2016. There were no iphones when we were growing up and if I remember correctly, half the kids were complete *****. Probably just jacked up on Sugar and Cigarettes.

In my day we thought of the horror of the previous generation having to go outside to the toilet. Particularly on a cold winter morning having just woken up.

I would have refused to do it and would have pissed in the sink instead.

So I totally understand why she refuses to use a camera without internet connection.

We went to a family function a few weeks back and I took my Sony digital camera. One of the young guys (about 12'ish) was asked to take some pictures with it.

He gave up after a few attempts and reverted to someones iPhone. Said it was too complicated... I hate what would happen if you gave them a SRL 35mm camera without the auto mode these days!

Having been through this, if it is just a pee you had chamber pots under the bed for this reason.

This thread makes me smile because as I am writing this, my daughter has just landed (or so I assume) in Seoul in South Korea as part of a Girl Guiding trip.

Prior to their departure, the girls involved made a joint decision to not take any mobiles or similar devices with them because they agreed that since they were relative strangers with each other (each one was selected from her particular girl Guide region and whilst they have met for weekends prior to the trip, it has not been enough time for them to really bond), then they needed to focus on building their team spirit and that by ditching the social media tools, it would give them more impetus to do so.

Now whilst I thoroughly approved of their decision, it is odd because I now have a strange, almost nervous, sensation of not being able to pick up my phone here and ring her direct.

So the whole experience is going to be an interesting one from our point of view as well and whilst I have the utmost faith in the leaders going with them, it still does leave me with a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach.

To be fair a couple of blokes who look a bit like Ledley and Jedi probably do live in the shed.

Not necessarily a bad thing that kids have so many electrical devices and are so IT savvy these days. My boy is still in primary school but is learning about computer coding and writing programs already, and that will stand the kids in good stead for the future which will all be about ICT.

My daughter has decided to be a "You Tuber"....which basically involves vids of her getting out of bed and saying "Hi guys....." or doing her nails, which starts with "Hi guys, today I'm doing my nails.....". Her You Tube channel has 10 subscribers....she was crestfallen to find out her cousin has 197 subscribers....he says its because he makes vids that don't involve him getting out of bed and looking at himself in the mirror.

She is currently making one about her re-decorated bedroom, which has started with the words "Hi guys, just wanted to give you a tour of my bedroom after I re-decorated it....." she has had to restart 4 times because I keep shouting in "You didn't redecorate it, I did, whilst you were in England seeing the grandparents!"

I guess it depends on what you guys are calling kids... I'm 28 and know people my age who live out their lives on social media. In fact, in my job I see people much older than 28 doing the same.

Fairly harmless I guess, but it's not for me.

In a nutshell.

It's brilliant that kids are being schooled in IT at early ages these days. It is the future, and an early start is paramount. It's definitely a generation thing. I am a relative IT dunce, my only indulgence is the BBS; Facefook and the Twatosphere are not for me, and my 85-year old mother struggles with the TV remote. At the end of the day, all the IT knowledge in the world cannot replace proper learning. IT knowledge supplements other knowledge, it doesn't replace it. I am proud of the fact I can do nine times eight without asking Google. And it would be even better if like most other kids in the world, they could speak another language, other than text-speak and profane

It's all about balance, and not letting it rule your life. It's completely possible to go about daily life with being glued to your electronic devices. I would even go as far as to suggest that life exists outside of them, and you will not spontaneously combust if you put your smart device (or whatever they are now called) down for a few minutes. They need to try when they go to the toilet, for example. Small steps and all that...

And don't get me started about Pokemon Go. Get a LIFE, you sad saps!!

Kids are far more IT savvy than I am and spend far too much time on their electronics. In order to combat this I am trying to install "Electronic Time limiters" on their phones. No problems in installing Dinnertime on my son's android and it is great as he knows when he can and can not go on his devices. But, trying to instal Screentime on my daughters Iphone is a nightmare (apparently Dinnertime doesn't work with Apple devices ..). Now on day three on trying to instal it and still not completed. Each day I get so far and then she needs her phone to go out with her friends.
