There were no infant seats in cars. Some cars had seat belts in the back but hardly anybody used them.
People smoked everywhere.
Kids ate plastic toys and sucked on lead toys.
Electrical outlets were unprotected.
Kids were allowed to ride on go-carts, bicycles and skates without helmets!
Our parents cooked in metal pots and even used ovens. There were no microwaves; toaster strudels; pizza deliveries and very few drive-thrus.
We were sent outside to play and often didn’t come back until it got dark.
We survived somehow and whereas I don’t recall it being difficult, I do remember having lots of fun!
