Times have changed.  I found a list of things mothers used to do that mothers now in 2017 would never do.  This is from msn.com. Looking back, I am surprised my Mom did let me smoke Lucky Strike cigarettes!  (I have never smoked, fyi).  #1 on the list of 19 things your Mom wouldn't let you do now that at one time people didn't think about, not wear a seat belt.

Here is the list from msn.com.  There are a bunch of things on this list that make me laugh.  One thing my Mom denies and I remember like it was yesterday, making me sit at the dinner table with lined paper and write with my right hand.  I am left handed.  Left hand is of the devil!
