I beg to differ with you on that aspect.... and I bet that a majority of those on this thread who grew up in what you call "the good old days" would also disagree with you. You're relatively a young man. I'd guess mid-late 20's? So from an experiential perspective, you really have no common frame of reference to compare it to. Except the last 20 years. But those of us who are in our late 40's-mid 50's, who grew up
in the 50s/60s, will tell you that while it obviously wasn't Ozzie & Harriet or Leave It To Beaver, comparing then to now is the difference between night and day. There wasn't alot of the stuff we see with kids today, going on with kids then.
