All these tales of 'we did (x) (y) and (z) and we survived' are written by the survivors, conveniently ignoring all those who DIDN'T survive; you know, the deaths and dismemberments and traumatized children who made current laws and practices necessary in the first place.

Funny, but rubbish. 99% of us were fine. We did play all day miles from home, and we got lost, chased by bigger kids etc but we managed to find our way home eventually and remembered it for next time. I have intelligent friends who still cant reach my home in London after several visits because they use sat nav. We learnt to fight because it was sometimes necessary, a skill that saved my neck in later life. I have younger friends that have never thrown a punch or ran for their lives, I hope I'm not with them when it gets serious one day. Nobody wore a helmet, we used to get towed along behind my mums car on skateboards holding onto the bumper..it was amazing. Now social services would get a call..oh well

Real butter is actually healthy (you should avoid margarine) (anyway read about French paradox). People thinking that fats make you fat but it is partly true. Carbohydrates (sugar) make you fat and cause diabetes (body needs a lot of insulin to reduce sugars from your blood and turns sugars straight into fats) . Most myths with food base on old researches from 50-70''. What is wrong with aspirin and can tuna?

Dad is on the mark, regardless of the downvotes.

My dad was struck by polio when he was 5 years old. He survived, but a few of his classmates did not.

No, my mom didn't get tested for diabetes. As a direct result of my parents and the doctor not knowing that she was a Type I diabetic, my little sister died before she was one day old.

I have a friend who has been in a wheelchair since 1985, when he was 14 years old, because he was riding without a helmet.

I have another friend who lost her mother and all 3 of her siblings in one car wreck because they weren't wearing seat belts. She doesn't celebrate those good old days of standing up in the car seats.

A former co-worker lost his father to a Mississippi lynch mob. I guess the folks in the mob might be nostalgic for a time when black people "knew their place."

Two words: thalidomide babies.

Then, we grew up and raised the kids this author's passive aggressive whining is directed towards. Who exactly started this trend of passing out participation awards? The poster's generation.

I think the author is suffering with a very selective memory, is expressing their need to be superior, and has probably gotten too much of their worldview from watching TV. The sad irony is strong in this one.

....


You had friends, whom you saw, spent time with and with whom you still are in contact. Actual, real friends and not pixels on a screen.

True, children died because of illnesses and accidents back then. Now they die because of risky selfies, drugs, alcohol ... and soon of the same old illnesses as well as more and more parents start to believe vaccinations cause autism / narcolepsy / something or the other.

Mississippi lynch mobs were ineffective, and have been replaced by school shooters. Not exactly a problem in the "old times".

Thalidomide babies in the 60s; babies dying because of parents addicted to drugs/booze/games in the 2000s.

My point? Different decade, same problems.

Nothing gets better over time, it just gets easier to swallow.
