    MARATHON, Fla. - Authorities say a grandmother was arrested for driving around the parking lot of a Marathon grocery store with her 3-year-old child sitting on the roof of the car.

    Authorities say the woman told police she was giving the child some air and letting her have fun. <snipped>

    Because none of our parents did anything like this when we were kids.

    Different generation perhaps.

    Of course you do!

    And I'm sure you're quite biased because YOUR mother did the same thing with you as a child and you LOVED it! But at least she had the good sense to make you wear a helmet while you were up there!

    Back when I was a kid I loved riding in the back of pick up trucks. Now that is considered child abuse and is illegal here in California.

    I prolly would never have drove with my child on the roof of my car but damnit we are over protecting our children and not preparing them for the bumps and bruises they will get from real life. But then I was known to have swatted my kids bottoms when they deserved it.

    That is prolly considered child abuse today too.
