Set Aside Technology and Make Time for Reading

It is no secret that most kids hate reading as it is often associated with school. Many kids don’t like school and therefore dislike everything to do with it, and when they walk out that front door and throw their book bags onto the floor, books are out-of-sight, out-of-mind. Does this affect them negatively?

It is no secret that for as long as words were written, and possibly even before then, knowledge was shared through text. The most text that some of today’s youth see is an instant message. It is my personal opinion, along with many others, that social media lowers intelligence, and this is where most spend their time in recent years. Society has abandoned books and knowledge for on screen opinions. What does that mean for the direction in which society is heading?
