Top 10 Biggest Misconceptions About AdulthoodThings you thought would be different when you were a kid looking forward to being a "grown up".
You technically can, actually, but you're pretty much guaranteed to be caught.
You can't. Laws are made for a reason. We have to do things we don't want to.
You cannot. You could get in trouble.
Until you find out about taxes, bills, and the other 'responsibilities' of being an adult.
It actually IS cool... until the next morning...
It's bad for your health!
Yeah, it's fun!... Or is it?
You also don't have to deal with those horrible bullies!
I nearly got diabetes years ago, from today and multiple servings of dessert...
It's much harder to make friends when you finish school.
Adults have a lot of responsibility and less free time.
After you go to work, pay bills, and taxes, it's a little fun!
Boy, I can't wait for my prostate exam!
Kids just don't understand...
I still ride coin-operated horses, but now people give me weird looks and sometimes even laugh at me... They're probably just jealous.
I cannot have any more temper tantrums or other kid/childish behaviors without looking stupid!
Well, they have bouncy castles and ball pools that adults can use.
They have adult dot-to-dot books,
and anyone can still go to the theme park.
Worst thing to take for granted. When you think about it, how many friends would stick around after wiping your backside, cleaning up your vomit, and putting up with difficult, stroppy behavior for YEARS, endlessly declaring that everything is boring?
Not ALWAYS, and not both (some people live with a grandma/grandpa).
Don't even try to coax me into believing THAT!
If you have 10,000,000 dollars, then yes.
Of course not! Equality is the most important, along with democracy. Stupid, hypocrite, bossy parents.
When I was little, I wanted to be a vet (a job little girls probably would like to do when they grow up), but I would never be able to become one now.
If you still can't explain it to them, show them the movie Gravity.
Well, you can, but you'll be really tired if you stay up until like 3:00.

This is the most annoying thing to do. Be stronger and others will admire you.
This one is sort of like the idea that siblings, when growing up, suspect they are adopted because they look nothing like you or your parents. Time and a lot of growing up show this usually turns out to be untrue. Remember, our parents installed our buttons (behaviors) and know how to use them or abuse them. We often reinstall those buttons on OUR children, whether we intend to or not. Sorting the good from the bad is sometimes the tough part.
