What we did have as kids was tons and tons of kids to play with. Dozens. That was when there were a lot of families with 5+ kids. We had kick ball and dodge ball and kick-the-can and Red Rover. We had freedom to wander (as long as we were home for dinner) without our parents having to worry about us.We had penny candy!
I would not trade my childhood for all the trappings of today's adult-run, ultra-PC society.

My husband is still steaming about Ten Little Indians now being Ten Little Airplanes. We have 3 grandchildren under 18 months and we're beginning to SEE with our own eyes what the liberals have done to childhood!
