Yes, I agree with you. Mall shopping is considered an activity for friends and family too. Though I don't really enjoy shopping, there are times when I meet up with friends, we always go to the mall for a meal or drink, then we will shop for a while. Though I don't like to bring my kids for shopping, we always go grocery shopping and visit the book stores. It's like our family activity, and I think it's good for kids to learn about those groceries too. Looking at the screens is just different, especially for kids.
