I uses to do that all the time. Even kids I didn't really konw all that well, if we needed an extra to play hoops/football/ride bikes or mess with girls we say "can so and so come out and play"

That still happens to me everyday. Even though I have phones and crap, my friends still knock on my door, and ask my parents if i'm home.

Video games, Internet, watch television, talk on the phone or swim in their pool. Some kids don't play at parks during the summer because they complain it's to hot.

In New York, Florida and Houston the parks are competitive. New York is to out of control for me. There would be arguements that would lead to gun shooting. Then you go to Houston and it's hot as hell outside and no one really played at the park.

Florida is perfect, the weather i love and the competition level is nice.

Where I'm from, kids slash tires, drag race, and pretty much disrespectful to authority.

yeah i remember back in the day when cartoons only showed in the mornings before school and on saturdays. talking about g.i. joe, thundercats, he-man, voltron...etc. then after school, you played with friends from within your block or complex until you could hear your mama yelling for dinner. bike tag, hoop, two-hand touch football, hide and seek. now with all the technology, kids don't have that. and also obesity is at an all time high now.

The only times I would go inside would be to get something to eat or when it got dark around 9/9:30.

Even when there was really nothing to do my friends and I would walk down the street or ride our bikes to 7 11 and buy some slurpees and just sit in front of one our houses and chill. Do kids spend too much time inside playing video games and going on the internet now?

K well im13 and we go to the park every day its 105 and under which is never in PHX

I have neighbors across the street and all they do is play outside althoguh its with their bro's and sisters but there are like 5 or 6 of them.

There arent many kids anymore but when i was a kid everyone would get together and play. But when i got older like middle-school we wouldnt play as much but like **** around more. We would ding dong ditch pretty much every day and **** around with other people and ride bikes and pick fights with older kids.


My parents would make me read or play outside. And i was like, **** reading. So i went and played outside with my older bro, and two other neighbors and would play, soccer, football, tennis with no net, four square, handball, laser tag, super soakers, dodgeball man you name it we played it.

I always looked forward to doing supersoakers. We would make these big ass forts with lawns chairs. Good ****.

We played literally ALL NIGHT and we barely went into each other houses. Only to get water and stuff. Then one of the neighbors and my bro were the same age and they got older and it wasnt the same. The other friend moved out for a bit and i really missed it. He moved back and there was a new kid that moved in but he was a REAL prick. I just put up with his ****. I wish i hadnt but w/e.

I miss those days.

The world is changing my friend. 14 year olds having cybersex and 15 year old girls reading cosmo. Its crazy. Parks are useless now.

I miss being a kid but I wouldn't want to be one in this day and age. They get dumber by the generation.
