When Pete Was A Kid
A small town in Saskatchewan in the 1950s was the absolute best place and time for a little boy with an over-developed sense of curiosity to grow up Pete, all the other “free range” kids and adults occupied roles that allowed children to play. Kids discovered what it meant to be members of a community where water was lugged in pails from a well, electricity was often absent, and sewer systems were non-existent. Children were expected to be good. Parents did not worry so much about being “good parents.” Their children played outside, where they were given their independence to play spontaneously. They weren’t given a lot of rules, but they sure found out what the rules were when they broke them!
