Which one do you think you'll miss the most most? Which one are you sad that your kids won't get to experience?

"I was just explaining to my daughter dial-up internet after watching an old episode of Fresh Off the Boat where they were""waiting"" for the internet connection. She could not understand the concept! Haha
I think parents should force their child to be bored during long flights. I think it would help develop them into better adults who does not suffer from instant gratification."

I'd be pleased if my kids don't need to handle paper currency. They are just very dirty and carry all sorts of germs.

The children born today will have intelligent devices and applications to play with or even robots that will take care of them.

Kids have it easy now. Everything is so convenient and to me, that's just not right. They won't be able to learn the simple life lessons that I had to go through before.

True. That's why kids now feel so entitled. They don't work hard for things nor do they encounter hardships much.

I would miss long travels. I enjoy travelling and getting to meet different kinds of people on the plane or train. Unlike many, I maximize my time commuting. I love hearing their stories and sometimes, I get to learn a thing or two about life.

With advanced technology, there will be language translating machines which would make communication a lot faster and convenient. It would be so easy to talk to people from different nations.

It'll be nice not to have language barriers anymore. I like talking to people from all over the world and learn their cultures. I hope my kids can travel all over the world and learn from their travels.

Yes, I love to take long scenic train routes. The route from Darwin to Adelaide is absolutely beautiful. I hope my children can enjoy what I have experienced riding the Ghan.

I am sad that kids will have it easier and they won't be able to develop some good habits like patience and perseverance.

Hahaha I agree! I remember when in-flight entertainment was not a common sight on flights! All I could bring was my Walkman! Haha

Robot nannies? Is that a thing now? How come I have not heard of it yet?

I agree that kids have it easier but I think it's not fair to say that they won't be able to learn life lessons because they have it easy. I am sure the life lessons will still be taught but in a way much different that it was before.
