I don’t have a TV in my apartment (by choice), so I definitely remember board games. When people come over and we have run out of things to talk about, I’ll point to the bottom of the bookshelf and ask, “Which game would you like to play?” Boy do I get some strange looks from people like the games are the plague or something. But really, are we so dependent on TV and we can’t manage to play a board game and carry on an intellectual conversation?
You’ll be surprised how many younger people lack the ability to carry on a normal conversation about anything. And the changing of topics…HA!…good luck. We are so technology dependent that we are unlearning our basic skills.
Put down the phone, turn off the TV, and walk away from the computer. It will do you more good in the long run.
