23 Things Our Parents Did That We Could Never Do Today

23 Things Our Parents Did That We Could Never Do Today | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
From dangerous teething solutions to questionable carseats, these pieces of bad parenting advice from a few decades ago would horrify today's moms and dads.
Al Cannistra's insight:

I AM A SURVIVOR of just about all these things. Though I never heard of bathing in oil (that sounds too adult) or the corn syrup; the bourbon while teething was actually quite enjoyable (if you learned to work it, the parents just slapped more on your gums).

.

Oh hell yes, I survived – my father smoking 4 ½ packs a DAY, no seat belts, drinking from the hose, broken playground equipment, getting hit in the head by sister holy water for an ”alleged” infraction (a Catholic thing) – and more. Somehow we - the population - not only survived, but grew by millions!

Today life is better, safer. The experts tell us that.

They’re full of it. It used to be way more fun.

45 Life Lessons Written by a "90-Year-Old" Woman | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it

Al Cannistra's insight:

today's society tends to ignore the wisdom of the aged - perhaps a great value is being overlooked...   I guess it is personal choice,, but I enjoyed many hours with my grandparents - listening to what their lives were like growing up in Europe, going thru both world wars, giving up everything to come to a new life and adapting TO America and they were so proud to BECOME an America with AMERICAN values....  they were a treasure - and a foundation
