Youth crime falls as kids stay inside to play Grand Theft Auto instead of going out to steal cars

I'm picking up a lot of negativity from other oldies on here. Kids these days always inside not outside socialising, not learning how to be human, yadda, yadda, yadda.

I dont really get that attitude. The kids are socialising, they're just doing it online. big deal. I'm late 30's and I probably catch up with my mates online more often than I do in person (we've all got families now with kids and finding time to all get together down the pub isnt easy to do). So why shouldnt the kids as well. The kids get to socialise for 7 hours a day at school, so its not like they're not getting face to face socialising time, and all of mates and I are spending a lot more time at home then our parents did, so our kids get a lot more family socialising time then our generation did.

So long as the kids are fit, happy and healthy and you keep a good idea on what they are doing online, why shouldnt they be inside more often?
