Yes and no, though generally the answer would be no. As a child I had many of the responsibilities of an adult, due to having a single parent and young siblings (hence I was the caregiver), so I've been an adult for a while. While I get nostalgic for my childhood on occasion, I'd much rather have the authority to do as I please, live the way I want, make my own decisions and not have to rely on someone else for everything. by the time you get to my age, there are more closed doors than open ones, and i think that's why lots of people would want to go back in time, to when all of the doors and possibilities were wide open for them.

As for myself, I'm happy to be where I am now, and I think that's the secret to contentment. :-)

I don't miss being a kid, because I LOVE being a wife and mom! BUT my darling and I both hope to teach our children to live in the now and do the things they want to do. I.e. learn an instrument, a language, martial art, travel or take whatever class interests them, etc. Once you marry and definitely after having kids you don't easily have the same opportunities. NOT a sob story~marriage is BLISS! But still.... (((((HUGS))))) sandi

These threads from all of you re nostalgia looking back in the rear view mirror of life have been very interesting reads and I marvel at your honesty and forthrightness posting them (no fluff or excess of cerebral impishness). From my perspective at almost 63 I do miss certain aspects of youth but not kid-dom. So far I have wished to return to only 2 age moments: 28 and 41. At 28 I had an established business, far more responsibility than I wanted but I was independent and happy. Big rig was paid off, eyesight could still pick out small print in dim light, sense of immortality was still intact. By age 41 that sense of immortality was no longer felt, eyesight was in decline, and I had reinvented myself to "dance" to someone else's tune as a architectural computer drafter. However, this was where my social awareness, education, and growth really started.

The 1 interesting statistic re my kid-dom compared to yours is the nationwide (or worldwide, for that matter) population presence THEN compared to NOW: 30 Million, 50 Million, more.....

Hey, with what time you have left have a nice life. Enjoy the ride.

I MISS BEING A KIDD! :'( It was such a carefree&fun time! We would do anything we wanted and just act silly all the time.

I don't think I've stopped being a kid yet xD

But I wish there wasn't so many worries .__.
