GROWING UP IN MICHIGAN: Things Our Parents Told Us Would Either Warp Our Minds or Kill Us

In the photo gallery above, check out 21 things we enjoyed as kids that our parents told us were NO GOOD for us, would warp our brain, kill us, poke our eye out, cause decadence & juvenile delinquency, etc. But did it? Well, not for MOST of us!!!

And once you see the photos above, think about when you were growing up in our town…is it better or worse than you remember?

Did we have more fun than today’s kids?
Did we have more energy than today’s kids?
Did we do a lot more with a lot less than today’s kids?
Were things a lot safer then than they are now with today’s kids?
Were our foods as monitored as they are today?
Were things less politically correct?
Were we afraid to eat sugar? Or salt? Or climb trees?
Did we have more fun outside than inside?
Did we get cuts and scrapes and not sue someone for it?
Did we attempt to handle our own bullies?

If you answered in a positive answer – to ANY of the above – on the side of YOUR childhood, then you should watch and listen to the two-minute video below. When you’re through, consider what today’s generation is missing out on, who’s responsible for it and do something about it.…and see what you think about the differences in the generations…..
