Top Ten Worst Things About Being a Kid

The Top Ten
1 Homework

I'm going back to school in 4 weeks and I'm thinking about the torture of work and homework I'm going to get for 10 MONTHS AGAIN!

School on it's own wasn't so bad. But when homework comes into play, it becomes the equivalent of federal prison.

Homework is a big hassle since we already learn and work at school then we have activities at home.

I had to do homework since I was in preschool and I hated it. Even now, I still hate doing homework.

2 School

I have plenty of interesting memories involving school, but one that stands out is when I got falsely accused of scratching a kid in 4th grade and nobody believed me even though I was the one who was telling the truth.

I kinda like school because I can talk to friends but school is super boring. The teachers give you high expectations, there's too much homework and drama, and I'm not interested in any boys because nearly all of them are bossy and they tell me what to do. I'm in 7th grade and it's horrible for me. The little 6th graders are the full-of-themselves, childish- clothe-wearing, attention-seeking new kids and 8th graders don't care about anything except their future and their love bugs. Middle school is the home of all drama and nightmares. Way worse than high school.

School is sometimes good and bad. The good thing is you make friends and hang out with them the bad thing is teachers take advantage of you, they make homework everyday and they think we could finish it in one day

You go to school even when your not a kid.

3 Everything is Not for Your Age

You end up waiting years before being old enough to do something. Once you become old enough, they changed the rules to where you have to be even older. You end up dying before becoming old enough.

When I was like 7 or 8 I cried because I couldn't play the PS2 or Monopoly with my older cousins. Even though I was technically old enough for both my older cousins and my mom wouldn't let me play with them.

This is so sad! I'm 11 and I'm totally relating to this problem.I live near a local "outdoor pursuits" center and it's so unfair because kids do boring stuff and all the fun stuff is 16+.Everything is 13+, 16+ and 18+.Can there not be things 10+ or 11+? In the UK you can get a job at 13 (shocking) and move out a 16 (shocking again).Shouldn't you be allowed to work at ten or eleven and like move out at 12? TWEENS NEED MORE RESPECT!

I wanna watch Sherlock (the one with Benedict Cumberbatch). I guess I'll just have to wait. I mean, it's not really a bad thing. If I started watching now and if I finished it, I'd still have to wait for the other seasons to come out.

4 Math

My favorite school subject.

I suck at math.

5 Bullies

Honestly, sure they may be the Tall Type and can pick on you and shove you, but they kinda punch. I'm still a kid, a homeschooled kid, and never found any bully, and I am a black belt in Taekwondo, but if someone tried to attack me and they were another kid I'd Wreck them.

When I was in the third grade, there was this kid named Brady who always said I was a baby because I watched rugrats. Same thing with a kid named Aiden.

Bullies is the main problem. There are some annoying and boastful students who attack others just for fun. That so mean.

I'll just kick there ass if they tryed. I saw it once pushed him away from the kid nothing happened later. If it happened again though someones getting an @$$ whooping

6 Bad Grades

I get redo tickets when I get bad grades.

7 The Dentist

I remember how much I dreaded going to the dentist on 10/27/2010 because I had to get a filling done that day. I was 4 years old at the time and I was heavily sedated for it because of how young I was at the time.

Why do they seem to torture kids more than grownups?

8 Getting Grounded

Same thing w/ cosmo.

9 Finding Clothes Your Size is Hard

I'm 15 and wear a size 0 in women's clothing, so this is sadly a problem for me. I always find clothing in a size small, but rarely an extra small for some reason. This is 1 of the struggles of being naturally thin. :(

I'm an 11-year-old ( I'm a boy)that looks 14 and I have to wear clothes for people 13-14.If I wear clothes for people my age it will be WAYYY to tight.I have hardly any clothes and I can't wait to go to the MetroCentre (a shopping mall in northeast England)to buy new clothes.And do you know how annoying it is when you find clothes that are awesome but it doesn't have your size? I'm 5 foot something and people in my class are on average 4 foot 9 and I'm the tallest in my class and sometimes people call me a young adult

Some of the clothes are much too big. I need to find clothes that fits my size. So, I need smaller clothes.

Yeah finding clothes is so hard that suits me the dress is too big and the shoes are too small!

10 Siblings

When I was the youngest (before my little brother was born) my two older sisters would draw on my face every night when I'm sleeping. And a year later, I decided to draw on their faces to show them how they feel when they are being pranked.

I have an older sister, a younger brother, and a younger sister. My oldet sister's calm, while my younger ones NEVER get along together.

I sure really wish I were an only child. It would make life much easier.

Especially when you're the youngest.

The Contenders
11 Being Forced to Eat Food You Don't Like

When I was younger and someone gave me food I didn't like I would always throw it in the trash afterward. But I don't do that anymore.

Sometimes, when my parents give me yogurt w blueberries, I put the berries in the garbage disposal in our sink.

I can't stand doing that. I'm glad that my parents hardly ever make me eat foods I dislike

Then learn to eat food you don't like.

12 Being a baby at a family party

I found pics of me at a family party from 1992. There were lots of grownups there. I was just an infant at the time. I don't remember that party but I must've hated it cause not only was I unable to eat anything due to the lack of teeth I had, but it was so boring from a baby's point of view. All I probably did there was scream my head off, stare at everyone else while they're all having a good time, sleep, and poop.

13 Playing M Rated Games

When I was 6 years old, I would always play those Casualty games that involved killing stickmen on my family's Windows 7 laptop when I got home from school. I loved those games.

When I was 6, I played Pico's School. And my parents grounded me and took away my laptop because we are civilized Indians and not Americans. And when I was 8 I played violent games and porn games on newgrounds. Now I'm 13 and I still do it.

Well if your mom, dad, or guardian let's you play M rated games when you're not old enough, then that just seem like bad parenting to me. Just my opinion, don't hate me.

I don't play 18 rated games I just play 12 rated games or Minecraft.I feel so sorry for those minors being told that they can't play 18 rated games until their actually 18.

14 Peer Pressure
15 Essays

Why does school exist

I get good grad3s on them.

16 Lack of Independence

If you really think about it, you are never able to cope with life until adulthood. that is not a fault on the part of the child, but the part of the parent and the system. you learn to cope with life once you are unable to rely on others, which is when you are finally alone. parents wont teach you to cope with life, because they can't cope with losing control. from birth they neglect to teach you skills, and increasingly do everything for you. they cannot stand a child who can do things for themselves, because it is a threat to the status quo. if you really think about how many times they complain about you, command you, talk down to you, and embarrass you, you start to realize that the only way to get respect and a say in your life is to move out. In addition, children who may have sufficient competence do not get to make any decisions. in fact, you are constantly monitored, told to carry a phone, have no privacy or secrecy, and even have major life choices made for you. if you ...more

I'm a 15 year old who isn't allowed to watch Family Guy or American Dad.

Nobody takes anything I say or do seriously.

Because the kid wouldn't last a day outside.

17 Can't Drive

Children tend to be reckless at driving; it makes sense why most laws require to have a driver at least 16-19 years old depending on the country.

THE WORSE! I won many kart races without crashing and I still can't drive. note: I live in brazil, so I have to be 18 to drive.

My mom actually said that kids shouldn't be allowed to drive until they're 18-20 years old.

Than go racing in a kart.

18 Getting In Trouble for No Reason

There is a kid in my class that lies about me to get me in trouble

19 Nobody Takes You Seriously

Me:There's a Bomb in the building!
Person: Are you lost?

Test:*three definitions for bugs but not a bug in the game
Me:*raises hand
Teacher: yes?
Me: there is another definition for bug, I–
Teacher: oh! Blah blah blah

20 Thinking Girls Are Nasty

Ok look, not all girls only care about fashionion. I don't care about fashion one bit. I care about my dog, my friends, my family, my music, being myself and not letting other people tell me who to be or what to be. I like punk music and I'm proud of it, I love artists and bands like Avril Lavigne, Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Sum 41 and Blink 182 along with many others, I like Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes. I love wolves and my dog Coco is the best, she was there when others weren't, my best friend was always there with her Supernatrual, Marvel, AC/DC and her 80's-ish style. There is a lot more I have to say, but I'm actually tired right now.

They were nasty then, but once they grow up things will change. I still think girls in the 1st grade are nasty, but girls my age are terrible-good depending on stuff.

Black girls smell.

Models are nasty

21 Have to Take Medicine

When I was little I took Dimetapp, Trianimic, and Robitussin whenever I was sick or coughing. While they all taste bad (especially the grape flavored ones) the worst brand has got to be Trianimic. I especially hated the grape flavored one. I would throw a fit and run away whenever I had to take it. I even had to be physically restrained. (Yeah, it was that bad). The only good flavor was orange. I'm now 26 and I still hate the taste of any liquid medication, but I can tolerate it much better.

Bubble gum flavored is bad.

22 Can't Watch Adult TV Shows

Haha when I was little I watched Futurama, King of the Hill, some Simpsons, some Family Guy, Baby Blues, and sone of the Boondocks!

I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons until I was 15, and can't even watch Breaking Bad for the rest of my life.

Fine by me, but I would like to see Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon.

Who said you can't watch shows as a kid. You can do that anyways.

23 The Stuff You Really Want is at Christmas and Your Birthday

My birthday is in August and christmas is in december, so the 8-month gap in between is torture.

You think a 4 year old needs 932487593812994329394819324 holidays?

Yeah this is annoying the only things you get you want is Chrismas and birthday it's so unfair! My birthday is at janaury and chrismas is at December! I once ordered this kidizoom and my mum said I could get it for chrismas! Which is 2 months away that is 61 days! It's like the parents get EVERYTHING and your days are chrismas and b day

24 Being Overlooked

You can run, but you can't hide.

Yes especially when your parents have to check your computer

25 Puberty

I feel sorry for those tween girls growing breasts when there like 8 or 9 and their moms like "We need to get you fully fitted for a bra! "

I hit puberty when I was only 9 1/2 years old and started getting periods at the age of 11 1/2.

Hormones go crazy at the worst times possible.

Ugh! Need I say more?
