I believe it does. Growing up, I had lots of fun playing outside with other kids, inventing new ways to play, getting injured and healing back, getting into fights and so on. kids then, boys especially, spent a lot of their times out door, playing and interacting with other kids, while accumulating valuable lessons and experiences, all of which help to shape the adult they become. But in today's world, there's a total elimination of human interaction, replaced by gadgets. this has led to kids growing up way too fast, knowing things they have no business knowing, thereby eliminating that beautiful thing called innocence. the repercussion is that there are a lot of young adults who are mentally imbalanced because a vital part of their life, ie, their childhood, is missing.
