Raising a puppy must be sooo much easier than raising a child . . . only a few months of adolescence versus a few YEARS! LOL!

I do think kids have become more unruly than they used to be. My mother, grandma, etc., had porcelain dolls. Obviously, a little girl would have to be extremely careful in order to keep a porcelain doll from breaking. One throw of the doll during a tantrum = broken doll. And the doll certainly wouldn't have been replaced if it had been broken . . . with such large families (seven kids in my mom's family) they could never had afforded that.

I'll bet a porcelain doll wouldn't last five minutes with a little girl today.
