Here is the scoop - teenagers have cell phones and now there is even a virtual reality mask they can attach to a cell phone  that makes them experience things like spaceflight in HD...like almost real life…or really close. Can you say WOW? Now how can you compete with THAT?

Thankfully, you don’t have to. Keep reading.

It is a widely agreed upon that these “touch-screen  teens” of today seem to subconsciously thirst for more sensory and socially interactive experiences. Peer group interaction is a developing ground for social skills and we want our kids to learn to play well with others. Right?

These days they do most of their “playing” on their phones...which is just not the same as physical interaction and does not do much for learning healthy social skills.

There is a huge difference in how parents of today socialized as kids and the current “touch- screen era. Physical interaction in teenagers has widely been replaced with digital interaction. Even back in the launching era of the higher end 16 and 32-bit video games like Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, there was still the experience of interaction with your competitor who had to be right next to you and probably brought his own joystick/joypad.

These days any teen with a cell phone can download an app to play checkers with someone across the world who doesn’t speak the same language and neither of them have never and probably will never set foot on each other’s country much more be right next to each other. Its 2018...news flash...today IS the future. So how do you compete with the FUTURE?

Relax...take a deep breath…you don’t have to.

There is a sensible, proven solution. Physical interaction is understood to be a basic human need. Meaning at every stage of life, there will always be value to a group of friends doing something they all enjoy...together, in the presence of each other. With that in mind, a great idea for an stand-out teen birthday party is to give your teen a sensory charged group experience like they have never had....and something they’ll never forget...ever...definitely not anytime in the near future.
