People argue that technology has taken over the lives of this generation. Technology has taken a turn for the worse because now more teachers are leaning towards computers instead of textbooks which causes the students’ minds to wander, children are staying inside rather than playing outside, and now people are always learning information from the internet instead of reading classic novels.

Every single day as a child I would ask my parents if I could go outside and play with my friends.

Doctors state that every child needs at least 60 minutes of outside activity a day. Most children wake up, go to school, come home, and go straight to their electronic device.
