It's a miracle that any of us survived childhood in the 1960s!
Needless to say, childhood in the 1960s was quite different than it is today. Parents exposed kids to secondhand smoke and let them run wild in the streets. Sugar was in everything and hazards lurked everywhere. Given today's hands-on style of parenting, it's hard to believe some of the things that were "normal" for kids in the '60s.
