If you were a kid in the 50's, 60's, 70's or even early 80's ..how did you survive your childhood?


1 .- When we were growing up we never wore seatbelts in the car, cars didn't have airbags... :tg:

2.- Riding on the back of a pick up truck was an adventure that we still remember! yeeehaaa!!!:whip:

3.- Our cribs were painted with bright colors (paint which was full of lead):nope:

4.- We didn't have childproof medicine bottles, nor did our parents ever childproof our house :mg:

5.- When we rode our bikes we never wore a helmet. :cool:

6.- We would drink water from the faucet or from a hose in the backyard (not bottled water). :ko:

7 .- We didn't have cell phones , so our parents were never able to reach us (awesome) . :naughty: :drunk:

10 .- We would get scrapes, bruises, brake bones , lose teeth , but we would never sue for these accidents. , :horse:

11 .- We would eat cake, , bread and butter, , drink sugary drinks, and we weren't overweight because we were always outside playing :eek:

12 .- Four of us would share a drink, we would all drink from the same bottle and that wasn't gross nor would anyone get sick. :yuk: :beerdive:

13 .- We didn't have Playstations, Nintendo 64, X boxes, video games , cable TV with over 100 channels , VCR's , surround sound , cellular phones , computers , online chatrooms , instead we
would have tons of FRIENDS :bighug: :gossip:

16 .- Some of us weren't as bright as others but when one would get left back that was no big deal. They would not get taken to a psychologist, nor did they ever suffer from dyslexia, hyperactivity, ADHD, ADD, etc, they would simply repeat the grade until they passed. :bonk: :mg:

17 .- We had freedom , mishaps, , successes, , responsibilities,
and we would learn to deal with them. :agree1:

The question is...How did we survive? and above all, to become the GREAT people that we are today?

Are you from one of these generations ?:yes:

I used to spend my summers at my grandparents place. There was a lot of three climbing, running around barefoot, and generally making the woods and lake unsafe. I had a great time! In the autumn I had usually turned slightly feral, and took a bit of time getting used to being in an urban environment again...

Late 60's early 70's

Every summer,
Build a huge ramp to become airborne with our bicycles.

Swim in green water.

Out the door at 9am, back when the street lights came on. (covered in dirt)

Sleep outside in the backyard, gazing at the stars with a telescope and
swimming in the neighbors pool at 3am.

Snake, Frog, Tadpole, Crayfish hunting on a daily basis.

Firecrackers, Firecrackers, Firecrackers!

If I didn't come home for food.... Mom knew someone fed me.

Winter

Sledding down busy streets when no cars were coming.
(friends at intersections)
or bobsled runs through the woods, between the trees

Hockey in the street....... here comes a car... move the nets

Bumper rides

Ice skating on frozen ponds

Igloos, snow forts, battles

Can't even begin to list the emergency room visits

Your right C, how did we survive

The problem here is that you're mixing inocuous activities with demonstrably dangerous ones. For instance, how can a child riding unrestrained in a car compare to drinking water from an outdoor faucet? The fact is that if you consider the first three items on the list, there were large numbers of kids who didn't survive because of them.

Well yes of course I know there's a lot of dangerous things present and as kids, we do all kinds of "adventures and discoveries" on our everyday lives way back. The fact is, during those times back on our younger days we were just thinking how to have FUN!!!:cool:

Well, I kinda disagree with you on this. Here at home, drinking on the faucet today could bring you to the emergency room in less than 12 hours due to diarhea, vomiting and other type of diseases that's caused by drinking contaminated water. If not attended, you may die within 48 to 72 hours. :(

Same as with playing with xbox and computers, watch TV all day. Kids tend to become couch potatoes making them obese thus exposing them to greater risks. like this guy for instance...

hmmm, growing up on a farm, most of what we did was dangerous, from driving tractors at 8 years old to our leisure activities of jumping off the barn into haystacks, several did not survive in "my" group. Not sure if it was the smartest or the luckiest that did.

Oh yes. Building ramps and playing Evil Knievel. We used to lay people down and jump over them. Usually safe unless you were the person on the end.
