  • Easier now because we hav e better medical advice. There are a lot of really dangerous things they did back then because they didn't know any better. I am sure some things were easier though, like not having to worry about someone feeding your kid processed chicken at school. :) Sorry, JoLee, I had to. I really think chicken nuggets are OK in moderation, but parents that feed them to their kids frequently are the devil.

  • Easier now. Times may have been a bit more simple...but not enough modern inventions or medical treatments available. Oh, and I don't have time to beat my laundry on a rock. Most people back then did not have washers or domestic staff to do the hard crap for them.
