    My Mum brought up with Victorian values did a good job! And I was a challenge 🙂
    -Bed time 7pm. =public school
    -Bed time 9pm = high school
    -we lived under the poverty level and we got fruit, veg, meat, potatoes
    -If you did a bad thing ” YOU ” WERE ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT! (kept me in line ^_^)
    (our social scientists have created generations of dishonest people)
    – Please and Thank YOU (taught you to be civil)
    (60’s generation viewed it as elitist)
    – She never bought more than a bag of candies for herself but she scrimped and saved to send us to camp for a week and she got a little holiday of quiet
    -Playtime= the sky was the limit = make a house with blankets and clothes pins on the front porch and it could stay up there till the rains came= guests could use the side door
    Thanks Mum
