Cliche and naggy as this may sound, teens truly spend an excessive amount of time in front of their gadgets and computers. This is alarming because, at their age, they should still be active and full of energy. As parents or Titas and Titos of these precious teens’ lives, it’s high time to let them out and learn something that will not just keep them moving, but also be more disciplined.
