we chose to sit in the car while our mother went grocery shopping, we could walk home without being worried about being kidnapped, our dog could be left in the car with the window opened some, we could be home alone.

Pretty much. Unless it was a day we were playing ghost in the graveyard.

 We were allowed to bring home baked treats to school. The entire neighborhood's kids would play ball in the back yard all day long.

Haven't you heard. The way we used to do things is wrong b/c we, as a society, have LEARNED that the things we used to do are now considered "bad" and should not be done. <-- that was sarcasm

The bad things still happened back then but we didn't worry b/c we didn't have the world at our fingertips. Neighbors yelled at kids when they misbehaved without the parents freaking out and threatening to sue.

No cell phones, iPads, Kindles ... they say we have become better, but if you ask me ... we have gotten worse.

We used to have so much fun playing that . We moved and the kids there didn't really get it, so we played sardines instead.
