I think it is harder for parents to socialize now than back in the day. In addition to everything that bump mentioned, there is also an expectation that parents not leave their kids without adult supervision. Back in the day, it wasn't scandalous to let the 11-year-old watch the six-year-old for a few hours while their parents hung out with friends. Or maybe Grandma would come over. But now she lives far away. So babysitters have become an expensive necessity in a way they weren't back in the day.
