Improved Treatment of Children

Even as recently as the 1970s, mothers were quite cruel to the their children. They smacked them, shouted at them, jerked their arms, watched for tiny infractions to punish… Today, that just does not happen, at least in my neighbourhood. Parents are so patient with their children. In turn, the children seem to be giddy with happiness from just a ride on a swing.
