Kids really do have it good these days

When I was a kid I didn't have a computer, Nintendo, XBox, or Wii . I had a bike, a jump rope and some jacks. We played red light, green light, hop scotch, "it" and hide n' seek. If I didn't eat what my mom made, I didn't eat. I didn't think of telling my parents "no" or talk back & I got in BIG TROUBLE if I did. Life wasn't hard, it was life. Bump this post if you appreciate the way you were raised....

  • My childhood was the same

    Answer by Nitestalker at 8:50 PM on Apr. 6, 2011

  • My friends and I say the same thing all of the time. One of my friends was in Germany and at 10 was helping the baker and butcher to bring home their goods. Kept her out of trouble too. The beauty of the way we grew up is that we were physically healthy too. Of course, at playgrounds I've gotten a number of dirty looks when my DD came crying and she wasn't bleeding and it wasn't broken I'd look at her and say, "Do you want to cry and go home or shake it off and play?" Eventually, she stopped coming to me unless she was genuinely injured.
