I'm very much a "back in my day" type of mom
in that I always tell my kids
what things were like during that time, so very long ago, before they were born. I tell them about life without the Internet, cell phones, and how I walked to school up a hill in a snowstorm backwards without shoes (well, that last one might be a slight
exaggeration). They take it in stride, sometimes with a touch of disbelief, and at times I wonder if they'll ever truly understand pre-techie civilization, or B.I. (Before Internet) culture. If you're anything like me and think it's important for your kids to have an understanding of your prehistoric (ahem,
I mean pre-Internet)
upbringing, here are 7 things to teach them about the good old days.
