You CAN actually get them (though I'm stating the obvious, probably). I got a gay friend "The C**t Colouring Book" a while back, as a joke Xmas present!
Adults colour in ?

Going to buy some after I put my Lego away.
All part of a bigger picture (excuse the pun) if you ask me. The dumbing down of society. We already have a how to bake a cake programme, How to do your garden programmes, how to hang wallpaper and decorate your house programes, how to settle family differences programmes etc etc. Now we have adult colouring books?
I thought as a human race we where suppose to move forward. Not backwards? All these type of programmes convince us that we need help, where not capable of dong things for ourselves anymore and that it normal not to be able to solve simple everyday problems or do things for yourself. These adult colouring books are just another step in a worrying trend in my opinion. The dumbing down of society.
Rant over. Anyone else agree with me?

I'd rather be colouring in than watching "Jeremy Kyle". Or "Eastenders", or "I'm a fat loser celebrity dinner in a bed makeover attic reality junkie"

I don't think it's like that at all. Adult colouring books have been proven to reduce stress and are great for therapy and mindfulness. Also it's really difficult to stay between the lines, come on.
Want!

The bigger picture of people's intolerance for what others might find fun or entertaining? Too right mate...
It's no more childish than painting by numbers was in its day. Just cleaner and harder.

Hay. a couple of things. (1) I'm not trying to insite intolerance of any kind. I was just expressing my opinion. I understand that some people may find it relaxing, theraputic etc. Which is all well and good. But I wonder though would these same people have reached for a colouring in book to relax etc say twenty years ago before the advent of such programmes I mentioned in my origional post, Or would they have found other, possibly more adult ways to relax etc?
I'm offering this up as a question only. I'm interested in people's opinion on this. That's all.
Point (2) You refer to me as your mate. Yet we don't even know each other?

Judging by the car parking skills of many adults, they need practice staying between the lines.

If that is what you meant originally then I would go back and edit that post as well, removing such comments as "the dumbing down of society" x 2. I would also suggest changing your tone from one so patronising. However, I don't for one moment believe that is what you meant at all.

You can quit trying to be all clever with the "but we've never even met" comments as well. Does nothing but confirm my initial character assessment of you.

In summary, go and have a read about what your spouting about; when you've clearly identified the wholesome benefits of this activity, then you can come back on here and go "oops, I was way wide of the mark". You never know, you might even give it a go yourself. If you're approaching a certain age, it will even help lower your risk of developing dementia; the irony of your "dumbing down" comment slapping you around the chops like a cold kipper.

My autistic teenage daughter enjoys colouring and painting and this ups the difficulty level to enable her to enjoy it as an adult. Unfortunately the human race do not all work on the same level. Facebook and Twitter carry far more responsibility for dumbing down society then ever a simple colouring book did!!!

It's kinda like quietly sifting through a jigsaw, sewing, fishing or wood carving - or any number of hobbies that people enjoy as a way to relax and clear their minds. I'm currently learning a language and doing something "mindless" whilst I listen to audio actually helps me to focus.

why think it's dumbing down. if I colour in pictures when I am in my 40s I might realise I like to paint and enjoy a hobby that's fulfilling and worthwhile. the rest of the world are watching Towie, geordie shore and made in Chelsea learning that you can be known by thousands of people without owning a brain cell. don't blame the thick people on these shows, blame the people who make them popular. my dad's role models were someone to look up to like people who changed the world. now it's Katie price and Joey Essex. 21st century and the gene pools of animals, insects etc have all been fine tuned and honed into the best that they can be. humans are doing the opposite and making imbeciles celebrities. the human race will return to the seas and become amoeba soon. at least then the housing problems will be solved.

​a little brown just to touch up!!
Who would have thunk it, adult colouring books the start of such a debate on society!!!
I'd rather have more Vodka and Coke
They have these in those strange little £1 aisles in tesco too for anyone not near the other retailers. Picked one up last Friday.
it's a godsend. keeps my wife quiet every now and again! heat added!
who has two degrees and works as a midwife and a nurse and likes to de-stress doing this instead of reaching for an alcoholic beverage, which is apparently the 'adult' thing to do!

I'm not sure the programs you listed really qualify as "dumbing down", teaching someone how to bake, garden, do diy etc is surely not dumb? The implication being that you should know how to do all this by sheer ability of being human.
Can you bake a cake? If so how did you figure out what ingredients to use? Let me guess someone told you or you read it in a book...so you must be dumb then right???

My point is NO ONE just instinctively knows how to make a cake or build a wall etc... they need to learn it from somewhere, just because these days we have TV shows doesn't make it any dumber then using a book or being told from a parent. The principle is the same - you learnt how to do it from an external source.

Now TV shows that don't educate could certainly be used as an argument for dumbing down, but that's not what you suggested. I fail to see how something that encourages you to go out and create something yourself can be classed as dumbing down.
