I loved your article, never was a Friends fan. I agree that there are too many distractions today, especially for kids. I grew up in the 60's where color tv, VCRs, video games, cell phones, computers, etc. did not exist. I was saying to a friend that kids don’t read, play outside or form fun clubs anymore. I seldom see children just playing, they are attached to a handheld video game, tablet, or cellphone. My mother raised us to love reading, we always had wonderful books to read, I thank her for that and have passed that on to my children.
