Technology and children

The age of technology and information has forced our kids to be a screen generation. I have 2 kids, a girl (9) and a boy (7). My girl can master a computer and an ipod better than I and my little gangsta can beat anyone on his wii games.
Why have we come to this? Why are our kids preferring staying in than exploring the world? Is it us? Are we becoming over protective? We blame the technology while the one to blame is the parent. We are too scared of letting them out to play. Has the world gone so bad that we can’t trust our neighbor near our daughters?  Or sons??? We have to be watching them at every second so staying in sounds a much better idea. And technology jumped in to the rescue. Don’t take your kids out, keep them in and I’ll keep them busy.
Maybe that’s safer, who knows…
