    Default Kids these days...

    Fluff thread!

    So I'm staying at my mum's for a couple of days while our house is painted, and she only has regular TV. We have foxtel IQ at home, so DS has never watched ads. Last night we were watching a movie and every time the ads can't on he would freak out saying "make it stop mummy! I just want my movie! Put movie back on!". Haha, poor kid just didn't understand 😅

    It made me think about how there are so many things that we grew up with that our kids will just never get - ads on tv, having to get up to change the channel, talking on the phone and having to stay in one spot because it had a cord attached.

    What will your kids never "get" that was just part of life for you growing up?

    Yep my DS was 5ish the first time he saw ads and he was so confused by them he still asks questions about them now at 7, he just finds them really odd. I love that Netflix and Foxtel are free from ads!

    My friends dd was in my old car and she was lioking for her air con panel for the back seat. I had to explain it only came from the front. Now in my new car everyone can adjust their own temp.
    My dd saw a picture of an old land line phone and asked why it looked so strange with a cord.

    Also shops not always being open. They shut around lunch on a saturday when I was a kid

    Oh and something else I find funny is that my kids have used the term 'google it' from really young. Dd is 2 and I have heard her say it

    Winding down windows in cars. Having to get off the Internet to use the phone. Sitting next to the radio cassette player to tape your favourite song off the radio. Listening to a song a billionty times to learn the lyrics. Floppy discs. Learning to change the film in a camera. Having to watch TV shows when they were actually on TV. Only being able to SMS people on the same mobile network as you.

    Default Kids these days...

    Using encyclopaedias for research
    Using a library for studying and research. My kids still use them at school but mainly it's where the computers are.
    Dial up Internet
    Mix tapes
    Getting off the couch to change the channel
    2 tv channels only
    Taking photos on holidays and waiting to get them developed before you look at them

    Checking mail meant going down the drive way to the mail box.

    Leaving the house and being worried you would miss a call.

    Not knowing who is calling when the phone rings.

    The pain of wanting to watch a video but having to wait for it to rewind because you were too lazy to do it after the last time you watched it.
    Actually, DD is learning this after my DS bought 70 VHS videos at the market for 10c each! There's some gems like The Tweenies (not sure who'd remember that, I had my first bub in 1999 so it was big back in the early 2000's), Stuart Little, Mr Men, Maisy, original Blues Clues, Shrek and many more 😃
