I wonder if having a cell phone, or internet or even an iPad makes today’s teens lives as good as we had in our teens. There are so many answers, but I can look back growing up in South Norwalk, and having access to the beaches, riding my bike everywhere, looking forward to throwing the football, frisbee, sleigh riding. Even Halloween. No apps. No cell phones. Working. Then getting your license, driving around with friends. Learning how to drive a stick shift on my VW bug. It was like a real life video game. I suppose our teens now will be asking the same question in 30 years about them having it really good back in the 2020’s. It’s just the way it will always be.
