A Laugh Because Its Wednesday
I'm still unclear on if we have it easier or harder than the generation of parents before us but I remember the great things my mother did without Babycenter and Pinterest to give her pointers. Then there is a tiny category of things she did that might not be considered so acceptable anymore. I was literally relieved for her sake and mine when I saw this list on Romper called 15 Things Parents Did In the 90s That No Parent Would Do Today.
My personal favorites below. Sorry to call you out, Mama, I still think you are a saint.
1. They let their kids eat high fructose corn syrup
2. They let their kids ride in the front seat
To be fair, I don't know when this became inappropriate.
4. They let 11 year olds babysit
I'm pretty sure now 11 year olds need babysitters.
I would love to know my mother was not alone in these - which of the Romper list do you have fond - or not so fond - memories of?
