Much of the fun comes from threads that always include the phrase “but my parents did it and we turned out fine.” We’ve forgotten that many of the rules today are because of deaths in the past. Helmets, seat-belts, and condoms are all designed to save you from ruining your life.
Let’s throw together some weird crap our parents did/allowed that we’d never do today.
My mom put me outside, in the winter, in my stroller. – because fresh air cures everything.
My mom told me to put alcohol on my kid’s gums to help with teething.
I would have been camping in a tent by the time I was two months old.
We would play with snakes, eat a sandwich, play in the dirt and wash our hands tomorrow.
My dad handed me a fucking hatchet at five years old and taught me how to make kindling. This is because he almost cut his thumb off, making kindling.
Yep, my sister and I managed to survive the neglectful, dirt flavored, fun-as-fuck childhood, but we were lucky.
Instead of being thankful of the rules that keep us safe, people mock the history…..a lot of people died to put these rules in place, respect that.
