60 Old School Parenting Photos That Wouldn'T Fly Today

That attitude doesn’t fly as much today.

    There are tons of vintage photos that show how growing up used to be back in the old days. These 60 photos prove that things are much different for parents and children today!

    59. Leave your baby alone

    It was also believed that you should leave your baby alone with no time limit. You didn’t even have to check on them if you didn’t want to. Sounds like a great place to grow up.

    60. More beer for the babies

    It was truly believed that babies should drink beer. That’s why there were alarmingly legitimate ads like these.
