That's so true, Guest.
I talk about some of the things we did, and how easily I went around to my friends houses without having to call them first so that they knew to panic if I didn't arrive(!), things I can't even do now. And I realise how young I was when I did these things, and looking at it through my tainted paranoid spectacles, I begin to think that my parents were barbarians, throwing me to the wolves. Then I remember that all of us kids could roam about, and it's only nowadays that you can't let them out of your sight. I would love my kids (when I get some!) to have the fun we did, and not have to be transported round in the safe cocoon of a family saloon...hey, I've just written a song!!!!
The solution is to remain like a child, and then you can teach your kid all those games and go exploring with them - but they WILL hate having you around!
