Sometimes I think about what life was like when I was a youngster. I felt like we had it made back in those days. We had super soakers in the summer months and we would have huge water fights with other kids in the neighborhood. I remember going inside for A/C breaks every so often because my mother never wanted me to get overheated or suffer from a heatstroke. I honestly feel like back then, the summers weren’t quite as hot. I guess we have climate change to thank for that. These days, I still enjoy going out for walks from time to time. I even have some old school super soakers that I let my kids play with. I’m sort of like my mother because I always worry about the kids being overheated outside, especially nowadays. The unfortunate thing is that not as many kids seem to go out to play these days. Everybody is playing on their phones or playing inside on their gaming systems with the comfort of the air conditioning. I think it’s good that everybody is enjoying their climate control systems, but I do feel that kids should get outside more and interact with other children. This is why I had our kids make friends with others in the neighborhood, and I’m glad they were able to do that. On the really hot days though, I won’t let them go outside for very long. I just worry about having to take the kids to the hospital if they get a heatstroke. I don’t want to risk their lives just because they want to play outside on an overheated day. I would rather they play games inside like most kids with the comfort of our cooling system.
