No changes for me. I love my modern conveniences.

Try dialing 911 on a rotary phone! Yuk. Party lines were also known as gossip lines...but phones were used much less in those days so maybe it wasn't so bad.

I would never would want a wringer washer. My Mom had one when we were kids. Call me spoiled, but from observation I could see it was a LOT of work! My brother and cousin - both about 4 - ran their arms through the wringer. No breaks but bruising and sore for awhile. I heard about that scary moment for a long time. And hanging clothes to dry on the line during the winter was HE!!.

My kids, now in their 40's, used cloth diapers because the "paper" diapers were so scented and filled with powder that they got terrible rashes from them.

Technology isn't so much the problem...attitude is. Technology can be used appropriately or not, all depends on what choices you make. Respect/consideration for others and self control are severely missing in our culture. Pop culture shouldn't be raising the children, that's the parents' job.

The Danny Thomas show had bratty kids that talked back? Not the kids in the TV show! Dr Spock - I 100% agree with no spanking. I used to spank and finally figured out that it wasn't working. My Kids were scared of me, but their behavior did not improve. Plus I hated being spanked as a kid. I changed my approach - spanking was punishment, not discipline. It was amazing to me how teaching them about limits and boundaries and consequences and the reasons for the limits and boundaries taught them self discipline.

I have grands visit in the summer for 4 - 6 weeks and never have to raise my voice to them - except in safety situations where urgency is required. Lots happens in 4 - 6 weeks, so they are disciplined, but quietly, privately and never with corporal punishment.

Well, Cathy, my youngest was in diapers in 1987, and like his older siblings, he too got cloth diapers and rubber pants. How's that for being old-fashioned! LOL!

I always spanked, but spankings in our home when I did it were nothing like the spankings I got when I was growing up. I remember getting a few spankings, too, and hated it.

I spent a lot of time helping my mom with baby siblings when I was growing up, and spanking was the one thing my mom never allowed me to do. If a spanking was due, that was her job, though I do remember spanking when babysitting. Times sure have changed.

My kids still got diaper rash with cloth diapers, but rashes were few and far between. Kids got checked and changed more when cloth diapers were used, and I always knew when someone needed changing, because their diapers would droop and sag between their legs, especially double diapers.

Cloth diaper users (way back when)... remember running the diaper pins through our hair before pinning a diaper? And how about doubling-up the diapers for absorbency? My kids used to waddle like penguins, because their diapers were so bulky!
