Some kids. I didn't. ...and I grew up on or near Air Force bases that were considered ground zero. I can not recall ever losing a bit of sleep over fear of getting nuked.
Surely some did...but not all of us. I had other things to do than worry about things beyond my capacity to effect in the slightest.
Oddly enough, I'm not worried about it now, either, some 40 years later...I've more important things to worry about.

They also own land all over Canada. And are everywhere in Africa.
You can blame the Canadians that left the next generation to suffer for that. I heard in school was majority of the real Canadians went to America to make more money and leaving Canada because of Cold weather. I am not very surprised about that to be honest. Canadians abandoned their own land for what? More money. Today, I'm seeing more and more people who are from other countries, mostly brown people in schools(probably ME refugee crisis). Even then Canada lost most of its own companies and airforce(avro).
Canada would have been building their own weapons today if their gov didn't kill their own military complex. You see the LAV APC American army has? It originated from Canada.
I was in Canada, when Hong Kong was handed back to China, there was a big surge in immigrants from Hong Kong to Canada. The Canadian government instructed every company to do all they could to make the new arrivals feel welcome. This basically amounted to letting the graduates cherry-pick what jobs they wanted to do while the real Canadians got the scraps, so the Canadians left for California, Texas and Seattle.
The weather didn't help either. As Toronto became more multicultural, homes became more and more expensive, forcing many to commute by car from surrounding areas. Being close to Lake Ontario, means that there are frequent blizzards causing accidents on the 401 (an East-West freeway) with life-changing injuries.
The Chinese were doing the same in Silicon Valley - there would be 300 graduates applying for every entry-level software development position.

At some point in the Sixties, a couple of years before the events of 1968, a party from our school went to visit Czechoslovakia. I wasn't on the trip, but our French teacher was. He reported to our class later that someone had come up to a member of the party and remarked "I am a Czech- and ashamed of it". He was astonished that someone should volunteer such a dangerous statement.
