20 Vintage Pictures Of 'Awkward' Old-School Parenting

"Back in my day, we walked five miles to school in sub-zero temperatures. Not like you spoiled little brats nowadays!" Everyone has an older relative who says things like that, despairing of the coddled youth with their smartphones and crappy music, and parents who seemingly can't say no to their every demand.


And you know what? They might have a point. Although the world may seem like a more dangerous place now, children of previous generations had to make their entertainment, learn to look after themselves from a younger age and take far more risks while doing so. Parents did not have things like Mumsnet to help them with every little issue or guilt and stress them out for giving children too much freedom to learn from their own mistakes.


To celebrate the most eccentric approaches of old-school parenting, we've put together a list of parents and their children doing things that would horrify the mommy and daddy bloggers and Instagrammers of today. What do you think of the evolution of parenting over the years? Scroll down below to check out the vintage photos for yourself:
