I remember blacktops. I fell off a slide in 1st grade and landed face first. I learned the hard way that rules for propper use of playground equipment existed for a reason, and falling 7ft and landing face first on blacktop really hurts. Fortunately my nose healed just fine and isn't crooked.
I remember when we weren't allowed to play dodge ball anymore. Then we got new playground equipment.
Each generation probably does get more and more spoiled, but it's getting ridiculous. My boyfriend said something about Barney being taken off the air because he hugged little kids and therefore is a child molester. The world has become way too paranoid.
