Childhood

The children in Istanbul used to play in the streets, yards, and open air. They were not trapped in balconies yet, playing outdoor games such as the Leapfrog, the Puss in the Corner, the Blind Man’s Bluff, etc.  There were also games played indoors. Children did not have many toys, and particularly during the war years one could not even mention it.

Nowadays, the children are confined in closed spaces rather than being on the streets. Childhood was beaten down by technology. When they come together now they talk about computer games.
