When they are teenagers they aren't going to forget all the cool shows and events you caused them to miss.
When they are 30-something they may come to appreciate it. Maybe not.
Just remember what it was like to be a kid.
ps. You cannot make your kids pariah just so they will fall in love with outdoors. THEY have a generation the same was as you do. Its theirs and you CANNOT take it away. Don't try...
I understand the danger. The e-ban is going to be gradually lifted. Many people do consider TV or computer games to be really detrimental to adequate development in early childhood. I subscribe to that view as well. Of course, one cannot take children outside of their generation but one might try to limit the "damage".
