Most of us will totally identify with these photos and realise what danger our parents put us in (joking!). Funny to think how safe our grandchildren are now – proper car seats, bike helmets and no poisonous toys. They practically live in a bubble, don’t they?!

Would you change anything about your childhood? Do you think parents are too careful nowadays?

    We survived and we had great childhoods. I can relate to just about all those photos, swamps and all (No crocodiles though) I wouldnt change any of it even if I could. Our grandies will never know the freedoms we had and its a shame.
