A couple of days ago, nostalgia hit me hard when I heard my neighbor listening to ABBA, and I thought how lucky I was to grow up in the 1970s! Undoubtedly, the decade will be mostly known for Vietnam and Watergate. For all of us who grew up in the 1970s, though, it was the best decade to be alive. It was a carefree period when disco was king and we all had hairstyles that made us look like Chia Pets.

Do you remember when you saw the Bee Gees for the first time? Or Gloria Gaynor? What a time to be alive! Once again, let’s be even more nostalgic and reveal the 7 best reasons why the 70s were probably the best years to be a kid!

  1. I had this (and more) in the 50’s and my kids had this in the 70’s – BUT by the time my grand kids came around in the 90’s it was a whole different world. I wouldn’t let them play outside in the FRONT YARD unless I could see them and they certainly couldn’t go by themselves around the CORNER to the park alone! Good God, I had no idea who could be there that could have an unhealthy interest in a blond hair blue eyed little girl! It’s all changed and my GREAT grand kids now wouldn’t even THINK about knocking on a friend’s door to go play unless a “play date” was set up. What childhood has lost is sad. And the lack shows up as they grow to nervous unself-assured adults who often have trouble making ANY decisions without help, much less good decisions, because they never had the chance to do things and possibly fail and learn from them.
