19 Old School Parenting Choices That Wouldn’t Pass Today

From hanging at the beach to playing in the park, we all have pretty innocent photos of our children. But if you look at some of your parent’s childhood photos, you’d be surprised by some the old school parenting choices your grandparents made. We think they are hilarious and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It was a different time!

People are sharing their childhood photos on Reddit and wanted to share my favorites:
