Yep, exactly the same in my childhood. But I guess that is also because my parents generally had stuff to do when they were at home. I learned to lay bricks, do stucco, paint windows, cook, knit, sew etc from my parents.

What, you mean you had actual adult parents who knew their job was to bring you up to their level and not the other way around? Now that's what's missing from a lot of households today! ;)

And I'm doing my part to pass that philosophy along to succeeding generations.
