This question is important. Kids today have access to so many recouses and tools that every one of them has the capability to do something great. But there is one thing containing them, Social Media. I see kids in middle school begging their parents for Facebook accounts so that they can be with their friends when they are not. They spend hours scrolling through a feed full of useless information. While they are doing this some other kids are reading. The kids that are reading will be a lot better off in the long run. It all comes down to creativity. When kids read about what their friend ate for breakfast that information is useless, the kid that is reading articles about current events will be improving his knowledge of vocabulary and useful information. I have seen kids that want access to Social Media that they accept the permission from their parents to do so as a birthday present. Kids always want to know what their friends are doing instead of doing what they could be doing. This generation will more than likely be one of the dumbest generations the United States has ever seen.
