are your kids having a better childhood than yours?  My childhood was spent as a "navy brat" and I actually enjoyed the traveling, but the bases we lived on were safe so we got to go where ever we wanted, my kids don't get to so for that reason I will say no, I had it better.

I had it much better! We spent all our time outside with other friends. My son spends a lot of time with me.

 My grown kids had it much better than I did as a kid, but as young adults, married and in the working world, they have it harder than I did, though they're better off financially than I was at their age.

I think I did to be honest. Yes my kids have more cooler toys but I was outside more for hours because it was safer. I would ride my bike all day or go swimming all day....my kids can't do that.

Some ways yes, some ways no. My husband and I are still married and all 6 are ours together, where my parents were divorced. I had to go to school, where I let my kids chose to go to public or homeschool. I was able to ride my bike all over town, where my kids can't. But I hardly ever went camping, my kids love to go camping. I never lived on a working ranch, where my kids have been on round ups,done haying,given immunizations to the animals, help shear sheep,milk goats and take care of bummer lambs.
