Let’s state the obvious right now: parenting takes a lot of work. It takes more than putting food on the table and providing for your children’s needs. You also need to care of them and ensure their safety.
Parents of today know that for certain. These days, it’s easy to find websites and social media pages where parents can access tips and other useful information.
Needless to say, things were very different, say, 20 or 30 years ago – and we have evidence to prove it. Check out this collection of vintage photos that prove old-school parenting is definitely NOT for the faint of heart.
#1. Check out this kid drinking Xxxxlight beer while holding a baby crocodile (1996)
#2. Safety standards weren’t that much of a big deal back in the 1960s.
#3. You might be a supportive parent but are you as supportive as THIS mom from the 1980s?
#4. Check out this couple who brought their baby to the 1972 California Marijuana Initiative Rally.
#5. Back in 1959, this kid and his veterinarian mom owned a pet lion.
#6. Princess Yvonne And Prince Alexander in Germany back in 1955.
#7. Who says you can’t go ice skating with your baby? Definitely not this couple from 1937!

#12. You may be badass but you’ve got nothing on this 2-year-old girl riding a bear.

#14. Dad and his son dresed up just like him in 1982.

#16. Another not-so-effective baby car seat. This one is from the 1950s.
#17. “My mom in the hospital after giving birth to my sister. Canada 1978. Smokes and roasted chicken.”
#18. Baby and Budweiser. 1978.
#19. “Me, 1958, relaxing after my bath with Toby, I was never again this cool.”

#21. Back in the 1970s, this California boy has a pet lion named Priscilla.
#22. A 4-year-old girl enjoying the zoo in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 1970
#23. “Just a photo of yours truly (at 11 years) petting a full grown tiger. My mom calls it her “bad parenting moment”.
So what do you think of this compilation, folks? Well regardless of your opinion, it’s a safe guess that these parents would instantly get bashed online if they did these things today.
