Gaming. Kids. Friends - Wordless Wednesday

When I was younger, you made friends by saying hello and do you want to play. Or something along those lines. But now.....kids make friends over technology and gaming.

My son met this little girl while waiting for the train. They formed a "friendship" by asking each other "what game are you playing". Then they played games. If they talked, it was about the games they were playing. LOL

Is this how kids make friends now? Hows does your child make friends?

  1. I think most of the kids are like that..all engrossed in their games more then really having some old fashion talk and play as kids.

  9. My kid does it the old fashioned way. He will ask any child if they want to play or if they want to be his friend. It ends up being little girls bossing him around and him taking it :)

  10. My 9 year old is a little more shy and more reserved than my son was. It takes her awhile to warm up to people, but once she does, she is there! I love to see her cultivate new friendships.

  11. Sometimes I see 2 friends together on the phone and I ask if they are on the phone with each other.
    Our society has become even more ridiculous if that is possible!
    Sorry I missed you yesterday at the Roosevelt!
