Ah, parenting. After 200,000 years of keeping kids alive, you'd reckon we'd have it nailed. But, as the decades roll on, it seems we're as clueless as ever. In the great tradition of mums and dads throughout history, we're still making it up as we go along. Hopscotch may have given way to Xbox and fish fingers to quinoa-kale organic nuggets, but, when it comes to parenting, some things never change. A laugh-out-loud look at parenthood through the ages. Humorous commentary by Dave O'Neil accompanies photographs of parents, families and children from the National Library of Australia's Pictures Collection.
