Take a very short walk through our history. How did we survive our childhood? 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...
2.- Riding on the back of a pick up truck was an adventure that we still remember!
3.- Our cribs were painted with bright colors (paint which was full of lead)
4.- We didn't have childproof medicine bottles, nor did our parents ever childproof our house.
5.- When we rode our bikes we never wore a helmet.
6.- We would drink water from the faucet or from a hose in the backyard (not bottled water).
7.- We didn't have cell phones , so our parents were never able to reach us (awesome) .
10.- We would get scrapes, bruises, break bones , lose teeth, but we would never sue for these accidents.
11.- We would eat cake, , bread and butter, , drink sugary drinks, and we weren't overweight because we were always outside playing.
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.
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.
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.
7.- We had freedom , mishaps, , successes, , responsibilities, and we would learn to deal with them. 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?
If you are, then send this message to others from your same generation or to others who are younger so that they can see how we survived They will probably say that we were very boring, but I believe that we were VERY HAPPY CHILDREN...
