Meh, no I don't really miss being a kid. Although it still seems amazing to me how quickly time passes. I'm the youngest of my family and I'm like "Whaaaaaa?! Me and all my sisters are already in our 20s!" Then I go into nostalgic mode lol.

But no, I do prefer being an adult - being able to make my own decisions, going where I wanna go without waiting on others, not sharing a room anymore lol, and even though I barely have any money - I can buy a heck of a lot more. I remember saving up on £1 or something at a time by cleaning the car or emptying the bin lol.

I miss it each and every day. Life was so much easier. $1 = $10, Candy solved all problems, Mom's kisses healed any injury, dad's laws were the only laws, and it was okay to say strange things because people just laughed and called you cute.

the only thing I miss about being a kid is not having to pay taxes, bills, etc. and being able to run without it hurting so much.

I had my time as a kid, I think I did a good job. I have my memories, good and bad, to keep me satisfied.( ah sweet nostalgia)
If you're still a kid, enjoy it while it last, is my only advice, before you know it you'll be graduating/dropping out of high school and then you have a choice...continue going to school(if you graduate), going back to get a G.E.D., joining the workforce, and/or joining the military.

kind of morbid now that I think about it, but I had fun with my youth, and don't worry so much of what others think of you, what matters most is what you think of yourself.

well you have more choices than that, but I figured these would be best.

that's true, I do remember when I was younger, getting a dollar felt like winning the lottery. you could buy more with a dollar then, than you can with 5 today...got 3 candy bars, a soda, a pack of gum, a pack of candied cigarettes (I miss those), and some gummy worms. total 95 cents and the ice cream man get a missile pop for 25 cents, soft served ice cream for 30 cents


this topic is depressing me...

It's a yes and no. But, more slightly to yes.


Yes. Kids are meant to play. And, I was very fortunate being a kid doing that.
Not to mention, I was very fortunate to spent outdoors and physically play.
I experienced the fun of playing kids' games.

I did not have to put myself in a position of staying indoors and spending the whole day playing video games or watching tv as my only option.



No. My family is/was poor. I always had hand-me downs and my parents always borrowed money from relatives and friends.
