18 Things You Did As A Child That Would Horrify You If Your Kids Did Them
Shoes were considered optional when you were a kid.
No shoes? No problem! Kids running around barefoot was par for the course. Our feet were so calloused that we could’ve stepped on a rusty nail and the nail would have crumbled into dust. We ran around streets and parks and woods without shoes on. We just learned where the dangers were and hopped over them! Kids in stores without shoes? It was weird to see a kid in a store actually wearing shoes. See, the thing is, we got one or two pairs of shoes A YEAR. We had school shoes, and nice shoes. Those shoes needed to last the whole damn year, even if we outgrew them. You just curled your toes and lived with the pain.
