    Janet, it's funny that you mentioned the issues of having siblings to play
    with. I'm an only child and I grew up having to create my own games and
    fantasies. My neighbors and cousins always complained about being bored
    when there was no one to play with but I was used to it. I think a lot of
    it has to do with how you are raised and learning to live in moderation. I
    think that TV, Playstation, and the computer are great but I still have to
    watch myself that I don't spend too much time doing them. When kids rely
    only on extrinsic sources of entertainment- no matter what it is- they miss
    out on the ability to create it within themselves. Michelle

    Sounds a lot like my own childhood. I wish my kids could do some of the
    things I did, but I had 4 sisters to play with. Mine are 6 years apart, boy
    and girl and although really like each other, don't have a lot in common. I
    do encourage making a doing a lot by hand. Both of my kids know how to sew
    a little and there's always been art materials handy. I know that most kids
    don't have that these days. TV has replaced doing and organized activites
    are the norm. Janet
