Kids Can't Swim, Tie Shoelaces or Make Breakfast. . . But they can use a mouse , install an app or play a computer game. . .  AVG CEO, J.R. Smith (Backbone Mag.)

A short and not too sweet article describes how our children can fiddle with a dial buit not much else. 2200 mothers of children 2 to 5 were surveyed. in the US, Canada, the EU5, Japan, New Zealand and Australia. 58% to 70% can play a video game, 43% can ride a bike.  19% can use a smartphone app but only 9% can tie shoelaces. I hope electricity and batteries never run out. v. . Our kids would be totally deprived of any ability to function.
