mike_d85: redmid17: mike_d85: They've raised an entire generation of helpless people and they will likely never recover.Alright Chicken Little.Oh, let me be dramatic every once in a while./I also believe this is responsible for hipsters being obsessed with crafting and cooking.
InterruptingQuirk: Ker_Thwap: There's a thin line between letting your kids explore the world and letting them terrorize the neighbors.As a kid, there are benefits to both :)KingKauff: Dont forget that with the neighborhood awareness if a parent that was not yours caught you doing something you shouldn't be doing, they would punish you then tell your parents and then you'd get punished again.The idea of another parent laying down the law today. Unfathomable.Miss Alexandra: When I was a kid living in the Detroit suburbs, in the 70s and 80s, we played neighborhood hide-and-seek. We hid in people's yards, and you could find someone a mile away at some park during such a game. We ran all over the place. We just had to be home by the time the streetlights came on.Apparently, we are the same age, or close enough. We used to play flashlight tag. That meant after it got dark, a dozen of us would be out running through people's back yards, jumping fences with one kid having a flashlight looking for the rest before they made it back to base. I can't imagine the night stalker/gang/terrorism police calls that would result today.
