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.

2 School

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.

3 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.

4 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.

5 Getting Grounded
6 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.

Even though im served something i do not like but i can still try it, i wish to start over and eat foods i do not like at all.

7 Playing M Rated 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.

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.

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.

8 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.

10 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 attempt to get out of a parents sight, or learn independence, you are disciplined for "age inappropriate" behavior. your childhood is all about control, and it stems from ageism, and a society that tolerates it. you are a prisoner to your parents, and as long as its either socially acceptable to others, or brilliantly covered up, they can do anything they want to you. as you are deprived of sufficient life skills that you can pass on to your offspring, you, too, can become an even worse parent.

The Contenders
11 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.

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.

12 Peer Pressure
13 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.

14 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

15 Can't Watch Adult TV Shows

Like South park it looks fun and it's swearing is blocked! And also other animated adult shows that are safe but don't allow kids!

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.

16 Being Overlooked

Yes especially when your parents have to check your computer

17 Finding Clothes Your Size is Hard

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

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. :(

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

18 Height

I've been short since 3rd grade and I've dealt with it forever. I'm a freshman and I am still short I just ignore people and go on with my day

I'm 14 and a half and I am 4'11" and I haven't grown in about 3 years. Everyone in my family is short and I hate it.

You can't help this. Everyone has a different height and that doesn't affect their personality.

19 Puberty

Deserves to be 1. I to this day try my absolute hardest to hide the fact that I am curvy and have breasts. I don't get how any other girl is happy with it. Even something as simple as a t shirt makes me feel uncomfortable.

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.

20 Spankings

How is this only 25th? Although I think it's only necessary when a kid heavily misbehaves, but even then child abuse is wrong even if spankings are not severe

Kinda sucks. Especially when you can tell nobody's parents do this but yours do.

21 Bad Grades

I get redo tickets when I get bad grades.

22 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.

23 Parents Just Don't Understand

It's not she doesn't ever understand but sometimes she just doesn''s annoying. She doesn't understand the things of today's generation ok ok a few things are bad really bad. But she just met my Friend Rutvi ones and because of her tantrums and stupidity she says ignore her and two of my other friends support my Mother...? SarahYukta who do support her...

24 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
