Being a kid today is hard but also fun!

How Kids Answered

“Even though being a grown-up is hard being a kid is hard too.”

“And, oh yeah, they also said they would like more electronics!”—Christine French Cully, Editor in Chief, Highlights

“Games are better than paying bills.”

“We love electronics and need more time with technology. It’s how we communicate.”

Takeaway
It’s important for all those who care about children—parents, grandparents, educators, caregivers—to be in touch with what kids are thinking and feeling on a regular basis. It gives them insight into a child’s inner world, which is constantly evolving. If those who care about kids are in tune with them and have an ongoing open dialogue with them, they can better tap into their mindset and be able to address any worries, problems, or fears children may have.
