Struggles Every Kid Had Growing Up In The '90s

As older millennials, we had the privilege of growing up in the ’90s. It was one of the best times to be a kid, with technology not yet taking over, and toys had just gotten to their peak of uniqueness. Television shows from the decade were absolute perfection, and it was a time when kids still wanted to play outside. But with every other generation, there were struggles. There was heartbreak. If you grew up in the ’90s, you’re definitely going to understand what I’m talking about here.
