When I was a kid, I didn't have a laptop, iPod, Blackberry, PS3 or iPad. I played outside with friends, bruised my knees, made up stories and played hide and seek. I ate what my mom/caretaker made. I would think twice before I said "no" to my parents. Life wasn't hard, it was good and I survived. Re-post this if you appreciate the way you were raised. I think we were happier kids. :)
Wouldn't you agree? I would agree that we were much much happier kids. Not saying that kids nowadays aren't happy but it is universally agreed that during my time, and even my parents' time, things were a lot simpler and the demands were minute as compared to kids' wants now. Playstation 3, Xbox, iPhone, iPad, macbook, expensive accessories and not to mention the make-up these kids are wearing! When I was 16 years old I was in rags, doll. I wore what my mom bought me and I wore them proudly. Sure there were times when I wanted more than what was given but at the mention of No from mom would have already shut me up and that was that.
