This is the second part of our series on how parenting has changed. Last week we focussed on all of the things our parents said about food - you know clean your plate as as there are starving kids in Ethiopia.

Do you parent in the same way your parents and grandparents parented you? In this interview, we’ll explore how parenting has changed by looking at the things your parents & grandparents said about raising kids.

  • big boys don't cry,
  • money doesn't grow on trees and life is hard
  • Be quiet – what will the neighbours think or what will the neighbours say
  • Kids were called names – you stupid boy, you lazy girl, greedy, forgetful, shy etc…
  • If you are naughty – Santa will take you off the presents list and you won’t get anything for Christmas
  • Didn’t praise much do you wouldn’t get a big head. Actually more put downs – “you think you’re smart now that you scored a goal etc”  “you’re too big for your boots”
