From A Different WorldWhat really bothers me the most is when parents become overly cautious with their children. While their intentions are good and even understandable, I think it is often over practiced.
"We were born to mothers who smoked and drank
Our cribs were covered in lead based paint
No child proof lids no seat belts in cars
Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are, still here we are
We got daddy’s belt when we misbehaved
Had three TV channels you got up to change
No video games and no satellite
All we had were friends and they were outside, playin’ outside . . .
. . . No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose"
I've so much more for this subject but, I have to go. I'm sure I've offended some and that many now consider me wild and irrational but relax and put on a Bucky Covington song. Live a little, because "We turned out alright".
