Ever wonder??

Ever wonder how we all made it to adulthood? It seems like everytime we turn around the specialists are changing what is good or bad for us? Put baby to sleep on its tummy, no its back... Alcohol is bad for you, no a little is good... Must use carseats ... I don't think my mom even owned one... must wear helmets when riding your bike... I know I didn't own one...don't forget all the saftey devices we have to have just to raise ours children now.

Now I'm not disagreeing with these, its just I wonder sometimes how we all made it here today...

  • I know right. We survived so much. Drinking out the water hose, not have car seats, my mom would actually hold me in her lap while someone was driving. We use to sit two kids to a seat belt, ride in the back of my uncles pick up truck, get left in the house at a young age and we know the rules, play outside til dark and no one bothered us, ate candy til it came out our ears and were fine. Never any ADD/ ADHD. A good old fashoined butt whoppin was all we needed. Ahhh the good old days.

  • I must admit.. I do wonder that sometimes myself.

    Times have really really changed more than I could have ever imagined during my 46 years on this earth.

  • It does make you wonder.
    All of the sharp edged toys we had growing up are now rounded edged plastic cushioned toys.
    And I may not disagree with some things that they have changed over the years, I still do agree more with what our parents/grandparents did. I think they had it right more then what we're told today is right.

  • hmm, this is very true u gotta point, but about the part sleeping on tummy or back, My mom learned the hard way, she would let my lil brother sleep on his tummy with covers bumper pads ect, and well my lil brother die of sids at 3 mos old!

  • It's like that country song. Bucky Covington - "A Different World"
    Talks about lead based paint in cribs, no bicycle helmets, mothers who smoke and drank. Very funny song.
    Not sure how I made it.

  • Well, the thing is, there are also a lot of people who DIDN'T make it to adulthood, unfortunately.
