Thanks to the 90's, the world has plenty of great stuff to look back on and laugh about. I mean, the thought of going all the way to your nearest Blockbuster to rent a VHS tape seems absurd when you can stream movies from the comfort of your couch. Aside from the questionable fashion trends (I'm looking at you, overalls) and what now seems like crude technology, there were some ’90s parenting strategies that you would never use today — and I'm not just talking about dressing your baby in M.C. Hammer pants.
Look, I get it. The parents of the ‘90s were doing the same thing that the parents of today are: trying their best. And as almost anyone knows, what seems like a good idea at the time may be one of those things that you look back on and shake your head at. I mean, what well meaning 1990s person would have ever thought chain wallets would one day look ridiculous on a grown man? Or that we would stop making mixed tapes? It's only in retrospect that these things seem laughable. So it's no doubt that parents of the ‘90s would see these seven parenting techniques and remember a time when they thought these parenting strategies were a good idea.
