There are no similarities.....
I was allowed out on my bike to play in the street...My children were not because of traffic,peadophiles and the like
I was allowed to the local park with my friends and no adult....My children were not ( see above)
I was allowed to walk to town on a saturday with my friends.....My children were not (see above)
I walked to school with my friends ..My children were taken in the car ( see above)
NEED I GO ON ?
As far as family values and manners were concerned YES my children were brought up in the same way as me but freedom for children went heywire over the past 30 years or so....the big bad world held many fears and problems for our youth in the 70's onwards and they still exsist today...bring back the carefree 50's and 60's
