Things your parents did that you never do to your kids
Letting kids ride in the car unrestrained: For many years, kids rode unrestrained in cars.
Smoking around kids: While there are still some parents who might smoke in front of their kids.
Giving kids soda: While most parents today stick to organic baby food, in the 1950s, believe it or not
Allowing kids to take public transportation alone: A few decades ago, it wasn't uncommon to see young children riding public transportation on their own.
Biting children to keep them from biting others: Just a few decades ago, the "do as I say, not as I do" approach was pretty big with parents.
Giving babies bourbon to help with teething pain: Long before there were teething toys and pain-relief products.
Giving kids alcohol to get them to sleep: In a text from 1920, psychiatrist Esther Harding wrote.
Letting infants cry for hours: The idea of letting babies cry endlessly would horrify most modern moms and dads.
Letting kids roam as they pleased: Parents would regularly let kids roam around the neighborhood and in nearby forests.
Watching TV all day: If you grew up in the '80s and '90s, then you probably watched TV from the moment you got home from school until bedtime.
