I wasn’t even born in 1975 but even in the 90’s we did the same thing. I’m kind of terrified for the young generation. They’re not going to know how to deal with anything. Keep thinking about Jordan Peterson’s advice on raising children during all this nonsense with the schools.
“You don’t protect your children. In fact you do the opposite. You expose them to the world as much as you possibly can and you make them strong. That’s the best antidote to their vulnerability.”
