Some older generation says, “Back in my day, we used to walk 5 miles to school in sub-zero temperatures without batting an eyelid.
Not like you spoiled little brats these days!” They think that parenting these days aren’t being done right.
They might be right in some points because children from previous generations had to make their own entertainment, learn to look after themselves from a younger age and take far more risks while doing so. Parents didn’t have internet for advice and worry about giving too much freedom.
Below are photos of past parenting that may be very different than now.
