Reasons Kids Have It Worse Than AdultsEliHbk
The Top Ten
Eh I feel adults have it worse - Luckys
This tears kids like me up, bad. I just want to control some parts of my life but unfortunately I cannot. We are forced until we leave the house to do what they say, which is reasonable. But somewhat often, their parents control every aspect of their life, sometimes down to stuff like clothes and music. Adults don't have to do that. Of course no one is really free, but with kids it's much worse. - EliHbk
Look at that picture. It's sad.
My mom is overprotective so I have ZERO freedom.V 6 Comments
Especially teenagers who have a lot of the feels going on that can really mess with you. And kids aren't often used to stressful situations so they take them a lot worse. - EliHbk
This. This a thousand times. - TwilightKitsune
I have depression
When you put yourself through emotional pain and turmoil enough times, you kinda get used to it, like me rn - styLIShTV 1 Comment
As a kid people want you to fit in and be with the "cool kids," as an adult, usually a lot less people give a crab it seems. Peer pressure is a big stress on kids that can lead to some traumatic stuff in one way or another. - EliHbk
Not true unless you're teen people probably won't trust you - Luckys
Wether or not they deserve trust is up for debate but even some of the smartest, most good kids don't get any due respect or trust sometimes. - EliHbk
Usually they underestimate how smart you actually are and their just like oh you're just a kid you could never be that responsible! - TakaChanz05
I am convinced that my parents have lost trust in me whenever we attend a family party or eat out with them after my cousins started harassing me and I told them to stop several times in a row. They now automatically assume that I will do bad stuff during parties when I am actually well-behaved :(
Teens have a lot of privacy because they just stay in their bedrooms the whole day. - Luckys
It's probably because the parents want to make sure that they are doing bad stuff like watching porn, or another adult show like South Park or Family Guy or Robot Chicken. - Drawbox
Yeah, but that sucks. I like people not watching everything I do also. - EliHbk
You need that sometimes but instead your parents while you're watching MLP... stuff...
And It gets annoying and repetitive. - EliHbk
It gets annoying how some kids need supervision to go in their own fenced off yard in the middle of the day. So many annoying situations can come out of this. Ughhh! - EliHbk
My mom is so overprotective of me that I'm STILL NOT ALLOWED to go to a store that's across the street from my house unsupervised, AND I'M 26 YEARS OLD! >:(
I think it is fine to not get paid to go to school but they do need to reward you at least every once in a while
You are getting something in return, it's just not material. You are being prepared for life. Your learning discipline, responsibility, and work ethics. These three things will go a long way in your adult life. As for not even being thanked, yeah it kinda sucks but get use to it. As adults, your boss will probably rarely give thanks to you for the work/job that you do. Anyways how often do you kids thank your parents for the things they do for you? My guess is probably not as much as you should. - THC13
I should get paid to go to school
In some cases they are asked to do chores but get nothing from it, the guardians don't even thank them ;w; - EliHbk
Not trying to be rude, but I think it's because the movies and games are aimed for adults. Also, they CAN buy it, but they need adult supervision. And most R-rated movies suck anyway. - Drawbox
Their's a point. And by " can't buy" I meant they can't buy it without permission and supervision. But where I am the employees won't let me buy it, my parents have to buy it themselves then give it to me. - EliHbk
No Call of Duty = no life for some people, so this can be a problem, or at least a pesky thing a lot of times. - EliHbk
Wait till you are an adult and in the real world.. you are like freedom, no more school.
You might miss being a kid.
I agree on this. - Drawbox
I know someone's gonna say "but they know what's best for the kid"
A lot of time adults do stuff bad for everyone after telling a kid to stop, so, that's not As excusable. - EliHbk
Correction: it’s not “can be hypocritical”. They ARE hypocritical!V 1 Comment
Having experienced childhood and adulthood, I can assure you this isn't true. Sorry kids but your going to be dealing with ignorant people, pretty much on a daily basis, for your entire lives. Get use to it. - THC13
It's a bit more common for some less intelligent, or more annoying people to be around when you're a kid. You know what I mean probably. - EliHbk
Nope. Sorry but you’re going to have ignorant people in your lives forever. - 3DG20
In my family most of the kids are actually TALLER than the adults!
I don't care about height.
Kids have to deal with height requirements at rides, can't reach some stuff at home, and other pesky things caused by height. - EliHbk
And I meant this one about more for actually like 10-and-under kids. - EliHbkV 5 Comments
Personally, I think this is the only legitimate item on the list. There are reasons for it, obviously---children have less life experience and generally are less knowledgeable about the world than adults. However, a perspective untainted by years of running in the same groove can be valuable, and more people should pay attention when kids speak. - PetSounds
When I was in online school, no one understood me, because no one my age was there. Everyone in the school were just a bunch of names on a list - SpectralOwl
Another thing like the freedom one - TwilightKitsune
Some of these items are why. - 3DG20V 1 Comment
I watched Baby Blues when I was 8.
Would you want your kid watching Family guy and talking about sex all the time? How about Robot Chicken? Archer? South Park? Rick and Morty? - Drawbox
I mean older kids for this, like teenagers and stuff. Nobody wants their kids talking about sex all the time. - EliHbk
There's that too. Sometimes I like stuff like that. - EliHbk
Who ever put this down has a nasty mind. - 23windomt
I added this here.
Edit:Number 10? I thought this item would get controversial. And I thought I'd get suspended for it. Well I guess someone can relate to me.
