What experiences from your past would you bring back for today's kids if you could?

For me it would be massive pick-up offseason baseball games at the baseball fields.

No travel ball, no hotels, no money wasted on kids that likely won't play D1.

Just kids from all nearby neighborhoods riding bikes and self-selecting teams (actually trying to make things evenly balanced) and one team keeping shirts on and one team going skins.

Playing for hours. A kid can learn a lot about true competition in such an environment.

Goldeneye at a sleepover

The feeling of seeing Hit Me Baby One More Time for the first time

The only available porn being squiggly lines on the tv at 2am

Surge

Going to the movies to see awesome coming of age stories or epic blockbusters that had been hyped for months

Being in a real garage band that isn’t part of “Rock League” or some other music store sponsored bullshite

Proliferation of air soft battles and creating your own bunkers and forts in your wooded backyard. Simpler times man. Looking back, that made me love nature and getting dirty. Foundational experiences to learn that hard work can be fun.

Paintballing

This might still be a thing.

No cell phones/video games.

Play outside all day. Play the sports as the seasons moved along.

Ride bikes.

Fishing on the creek and catching bream as fast as you could reel them in.
Rabbit hunting when there were plenty of rabbits.

Phoneless days of fishing, bike riding, wiffle ball and general goofing off outside.

Politeness, manners, compassion, being neighborly.
