My sister was telling me earlier that when she was in the mall today, she saw a number of kids (who looked like they were 5 and above) who were still being ferried around in strollers. She said she even saw one who looked as if he was 8 years old already. I told her we can't judge the parent's choice to use a stroller, there might be a reason why their child needs the stroller. But I also can't help but remember that it is really becoming a thing. I remember that by age 4, we were walking around without strollers, and just the occasional "carry" with our dad. The rule was, if we don't want to walk, then we will go home. I guess times have changed. Some of the parents may have a medical reason to use strollers for their kids. But there's too many of them nowadays. I just can't believe that ALL of them have valid reasons for ferrying their kids on wheels, even if they are big enough. I think it's just becoming a trend, and I am worried we might be raising a lazy generation. But that's just me. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.
