- Hi everyone! Why are MOMS NOW a lot more gentle and careful than MOMS THEN? Or is this picture just a joke?

Thanks a lot!

The graphic appears to be making fun of the phenomena of helicopter parenting, parental wokeness, together with preoccupations with building up children's self-esteem and the avoidance of harsh punishments and junk food.

In other words, it is lampooning the attitudes embedded in present-day bourgeois child-rearing practices.
