1980s Mom Versus Today's Mom

You Might Wish You Could Swap Decades After Watching this Video Reenacting Differences Between 1988 Moms and 2018 Moms

I'm a 2018 mom, but I'm also a product of 1980s parents, so the generational battle over which decade gets child-raising right is honestly a toss-up for me. Sure, it'd be nice to let my kids roam the neighborhood without trying to track their location with an iPhone app, but things are better now, right? I'm not so sure after watching two hilarious mom bloggers – that'd be Meredith Masony of That's Inappropriate and Tiffany Jenkins from Juggling the Jenkins – reenact typical interactions of modern moms and their 30-years-older counterparts.

If you're anything like me, while watching this, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll nod your head because you relate, and shake your fist in jealousy for a time gone by. But mostly, you'll wonder how you survived an '80s childhood to begin with.
