We live in a century of speed. Because of it , we start to spend less and less time with those that are dear to us.
Or had been?!
The contact with our family is threatened to be lost, especially with our kids.
The virtual space , the computer , are now baby-sitting the kids.
During the news we are so shocked to see all the atrocities that are commited by the teenagers.
But a question appeares: do their families spend enough time with them , showing them what is good and what is bad?
It is said that the education comes, first of all , from one's family , and after that , one completes his education in school , high-school and university.
The parents have a decisive role. And not only I say so , if not the psychologists.
I start to think that we, the adults need to be re-educated.
We must be taught how to spend our time , how to show to those that we used to love and still do , that they really matter to us.
It is sad that we seem to forget about our true nature. We tend to become and respresent the new people , a kind of cyborgs.
Slowly , notions like family , feelings and all that is human will be erased.
Can we do something about it?
