With a lot of families moving around for jobs, education, etc. do we have a sense of community, a sense of connection in our lives? In the sixties children could come home from school and go out to play with friends because they had a parent at home. Over time parents knew most of their neighbors, usually, because they had lived there for several years which made for security, social interaction, free advice, helping each other out, etc. I think my children's generation (they are in their twenties) struggle with it. Facebook seems to be their way of connecting.
