Nowadays, the idea that the leisure time is not for preparation for the working hours has gain importance and the fact that the leisure time activities improve individuals mentally, psychologically and socially has been emphasized. Therefore, it is clear that leisure time education all by itself should be considered as an area of specialization. Before learning how to use spare time, one should need time to gain awareness of what time is and what it is not. Recreation by preschool education is a very good example for this: true motivation, sufficient isolation, adaptation of the objective world, a controlled sphere for free-choice, a process-driven sharing - instead of a result-oriented one. The communication technology should be projected essentially within this system. Miss-use of communication technologies first separates the young people from their real functional social relations in daily life.
