We have said it a million times and we will continue to say it because it is the downright truth. Kids these days have no idea! As kids, we had to actually put up with certain things that kids no days will NEVER have to worry about! This list is not comprehensive but still an accurate account of things that kids under 17 haven’t heard of but should.
So check it out and share it with someone that you know who is under 17 and give them a throwback lesson!
1. Cassette Player
Nowadays kids don’t even know what a CD player is let alone a cassette player.
