6. We were allowed outside without parental supervision
Everywhere we needed to go, we rode our bicycles and we were constantly on the move. And it was awesome! In the 1970s it wasn’t a huge thing whether you were a city kid or a country kid to leave the house without a parent continuously watching over you.
But there was only one rule in my house, and I never broke it: if my brothers and I accidentally went over the limit, which was between 10 and 11 p.m., we had to call our parents from someone else’s house to let them know we were OK.
7. Saturday mornings were reserved for cartoons ONLY!
The Flintstones were definitely our favorite cartoons that kept us glued to the television. Because there was only one time on a Saturday morning when you could watch your favorite cartoons. Despite the fact that we didn’t have the luxuries of today’s kids with plenty of digital streaming services so they could watch whatever they wanted 24 hours a day, we were happy kids too. This schedule taught us to be more patient and be grateful for even half an hour of Scooby Doo!
What do you miss the most from the 70s? Tell us in the comments! We’re eager to know!
Growing up in the 70s was definitely better! Life was easier and simpler in so many ways. We used to spend more time with our families, and we wouldn’t let technology ruin our Sunday dinners. I personally value my childhood years and I am very grateful because I had the chance to experience and see some things for the first time and probably had the best years ever!
Sometimes I wish I could go back in time, at least for a couple of minutes!
