Which year was better growing up 1988 or 2018?

On The Show:

What is something you experienced as a child that your kids won’t as they grow up? Is it something good? Bad? Let us know as the Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel talk about this topic on today’s show. Here is what some of the viewers said:  Giovanni Scholtz 1988 I was growing up, 2018 I’m growing Old😂🇳🇦 DeeJay Sanders Everything now is instantly granted, and people are gratified instantly. “New Age Microwave Generation”  If you lost your friends you had to find them, no cell phone GPS. Music is not as heartfelt. The internet is basically raising everyone’s kids now. Iris Cummings 88 we still had cartoons on Saturday mornings and going outside to play. Ryan Dixon Kids don’t grow up the same in 2018 , they live online instead of playing outside with friends ! 1988 was miles better for kids to be kids! Jennifer Navarro 88 was the BEST it’s almost like moms had some unspoken rule that during the summer they would take turns feeding the neighborhood kids sammiches and those fruit barrel plastic tasting drinks 😂😂😂 riding bikes around the neighborhood from sun up until the street lights came on.
