Top Ten Things Kids Want to Do That Adults Can

The Top Ten Things Kids Want to Do That Adults Can

1 Drive

I want to drive but it might be dangerous. by the way I'm 13 years old.

I have a love/hate relationship with driving. I have to drive because I live in central Texas and there is almost zero means of getting around besides driving, because the bus and train services still suck. It comes to me now, but the worst part is having to deal with traffic and paying for car maintenance.

Tell you what, driving is a more complex task than you think and you'll have to put all of your attention on the roads, what route you're taking. A minor distraction could lead to a vicious accident that could lead to your death or injury. I'd rather stick to biking to reach my destination than driving.

I know some kids who want to drive wherever they want to go.

2 Not Go to School

Yeah but then you have a longer and possibly less enjoyable job - Unnamed Google User Remade

Now Adults that complain about work now you have been to school and your like oh its not that hard you lazy kids well now in this day of age we want things and how do you get things you buy it how do you buy it you pay for it how do you pay for it you use money how do you get money you work at a job at school you waste your time you don't get a penny while your getting over 100 bucks a day were here for 14 or 13 years AND WE HAVE NOTHING at least you can get that movie while I am here hopeless trying to figure out how I will ever make my dream come true and to make my dream come true I have to make money to get equipment and I can't get money

Yeah instead you're filing your taxes and paying for car repair and working a dull job.

Everyday you walk into the classroom, or at least me, say "all hell begins/continues here". My plan is on the last day, I say "all hell ends here. Finally"


3 Watch Movies for Adults

I wanted to watch Annabel but my parents say no (I watched it anyway)

When I was little I was OBSESSED with sharks I used to watch shark week all the time one time I watched 2 headed shark attack (by the way I'm 4 in this story) which is rated R all I remember is a girl getting eaten in the start

I remember I couldn't wait to turn thirteen to watch pg thirteen movies.

Its really not all its cracked up to be. The grass might just always be greener on the other side, but being ten was much more fun.

By "Movies For Adults" Do They Mean R-Rated Movies (Which I Can Watch Depending On The Movie), Or Actual Adult Movies (Which I Obviously Cannot Watch)

4 Drink Alcohol

I have no desire to do this. It's addicting; I've done the research. It can damage your liver, kidney, or other vital organs. Even when I'm 21 years old, 9 years from now, I'm never ever going to do this no matter what.

I'm not allowed to have my first drink until I'm 18 (because that's the legal age were I live) and I'm not 18 yet! Ugh! I Can't wait for my first drink!

People should be educated about responsible drinking. If that happened, maybe the drinking age could go down to 18, because is it just me, or is it ridiculous that you can join the military before you can drink?

Well, there’s an exception if kids have to drink it for a medical reason, otherwise no. And nobody should really drink it, period.

5 Stay Up All Night

You can always pretend to be asleep, but actually watch YouTube videos all night!

Amateurs. I hoarded flash lights and strategically placed my night light close to the bed so I could read at night. Then you master how to pretend-sleep. Adding in soft, grumbly snores might make it more believable, but its best to sleepover with a friend and ask them how you sleep.

I did this all the time even as a kid and I've pulled a few all-nighters in my lifetime.

I do this a lot, and I am still a kid.

6 Buy Whatever They Want

This is actually quite important. Giving children a small amount of money and allowing them to do what they want with it is an excellent way to teach them that money is valuable and you have to be smart with it.
Having a child receive money and waste it only to find that the item(s) they really want are now out of their reach can explain to them without words that you have to learn to prioritize what you want.
However, I don't support in the least giving children absolute freedom to have WHATEVER they want. Aside from the fact that it is more than unfair to have some kids getting all their heart's desires while other children around the world don't have enough to eat, the spoiled child will grow up not knowing that money has value and using it on petty things may end up with serious consequences.

I'm an adult and my parents still will not allow me to buy whatever I want...

You may be able to buy some of what you want but here I am still underage and I understand that as an adult you won't be able to buy anything you want. Life definitely does not work like that.

Yeah! Questionable heavy METAL!

7 Hang Around With the Older Crowd

I like younger people more than older people but I don't really like my age group so anyone but them I guess lol. Also, you're not an adult if you're 15.

I actually get along better with people slightly younger than me (let's say 11-) and people a little older than me (14-16).

Same. Many of my friends are in fourth grade. A few are in tenth grade.

My friends outside of school were always older...They're collecting their pension now! Haha

I'm part of the older crowd. Some people I hang around with are 17 to 19 years old. I'm 21 years old myself.

8 Smoke

Toddler: oH boY moMMy cAn I hAve a CigArETte?

And what adults wish they could quit doing, right? Never want to, never will.

I'm 12 years old and I never want to smoke. I mean, it can cause lung cancer, but it's also really expensive. I see convenience stores that have discounted cigarettes... For about 8 or 9 bucks.

No offense, but I wouldn't do it. What will you miss if don't smoke? Nothing at all. Change my mind.

9 Get a Job

You could just set up a lemonade stand or something. That could make you earn money

I wanted to get a job to make money at 16. But at 21, you realize that just searching for jobs sucks, not to mention searching for internships.

Yeah why not? You can earn money and it's good for your daily life. I have a job and I like it.

I want to get a job so that way they are not spending mony on me

10 Get a Life

You already have a life!

Oh I've already got one.

Still no life only air

You would be dead without a life lol.

The Contenders

11 Buy Lots of Candy

I would buy them in bulk and then charge people for them then keep the boxes that they came in for spring other stuff.

Adults don't do that

But they could if they wanted to. Assuming they're upper middle class.

I'm an adult and I don't like candy

12 Have Sex

Seriously? I'm twelve, and I NEVER want to do this! Ugh...all that gives me the chills when someone, even my own parents, touches my shoulder for half a second. Do you really expect me to survive the horror of sexual intercourse? Especially, if done before marriage, can be sexual transgression? You do realize, sexual intercourse outside of marriage is what leads to AIDS, HIV, and people getting abortions? Affirmative, you may feel temporary happiness, but is that really what you want in the long run? Some people commit sexual transgression (specifically young women) because they do not feel confident in themselves, and feel this is what they have to do to get people of the opposite sex to like them, and to win social approval amongst peers and friends.

I am an AUTISTIC user, and even I understand the significance of moral cleanliness and the "joy" of sex and non-chastity that appeals to many people in the world who want to use their mortal bodies ...more

Yes this is what a lot of kids say until their adults.
I'm still a kids, I'm not afraid of having sex when I'm older.

My friends are the reason I know what sex is and I don't want to do and I'm only 10

Especially if done non-penetratively you have to be at least 16-18 depending on where you live to do it.

You can have it at any time as long as you meet the age requirements (which is sometimes as low as 16 :0).

13 Be a Parent

When you're a little kid, especially if you're a little girl, you sometimes play house and pretend to be the mom or the dad. At 21, I still can't decide whether I'm the right person for parenting at all.

Parenting Is Super Overrated!

I Am Always Staying Single For The Rest Of My Life!

I wanna be a parent when I'm older.

14 Play Violent Video Games

I turned 15 a week ago and my parents don't let me play anything that isn't G or PG (I'm Aussie, so the ratings are different)

Duuudes you have WAY too overprotective parents I'm 9 and I can play teen games.

Whoever made this list obviously hasn't played Call of Duty with anyone on Xbox Live...

I can't do that at least when I am streaming movies I can delete my history I can't do the same for a game (unless it is online, but there is still an extension that needs to be downloaded).

15 Move Out

Even at 21, I don't have enough money to move out..

I have to move out at 18.

16 Request Time Off

Adults can request time off from work, but why can't kids request time off from school?

You can you just have to lie

But the adults will eventually find out! :(

17 Vote

They're actually thinking of lowering the voting age in the U.S. from 18 to 16.

Boring, waste of time, and not fond of politics.

I agree - Unnamed Google User Remade

Even adults can’t be wise when voting.

18 Wear Stuff Adults Wear

Dude, I totally get this one. I'm a guy and went through an emo phase, and I wanted to dye my hair black and wear a skull shirt. I wasn't allowed to wear either and it took MONTHS to convince my parents to let me wear skinny jeans.

This is common with little girls. Boys don't care what they wear, unless it's tattoos or piercings. They usually just dress in whatever's comfortable. However, a ton of kids are a fan of stylish class suits worn by adults.

For example,Most little girls wanted to file their nails,get a manicure,wear high heels,wear make up,wear over sized accessories like gold necklaces,diamond earrings,etc...Even they can go as far like thinking about dying their hair or to wear highlights and paint their nails(Wait?! Even tweens and teens can paint their nails)This is just too far

I've seen so many 10 year old girls wear bikinis whenever I'm at a beach. I'm just like...Uh wot?

19 Develop A Crippling Depression Caused By Loneliness And Shame

Are you saying you didn't have this as a kid?!
You were missing out.

No one actually wants that...

I already have it and I'm 14

Why would any kid want this?

20 Swear

Been swearing since I was only 7. I'm 14 now and, like every other 14 year old, have heard it all.

I know every curse word and I say them all when I'm hurt really bad or really pissed oh I just swore oops

Swearing is worse than killing and I have no idea why some people do it.

Everyone can swear. You just need to learn it.

21 Gamble

Gambling games are fun, but at 21, I'm not about to gamble my life away in Vegas.

I played a slots game on an old Windows operating system (either 95 or 99, I forgot) as a kid...

I saw a kid playing a slot machine at an arcade in Atlantic City a few days ago.

I did this before with my mother

22 Have a Phone

I have a phone and I'm 10 only

Not everyone has one! For example, I don't.

I'm not allowed to have a phone til I'm 14

I have a phone! Yay!

23 Go Places Without Supervision

My mom wants me to go places without supervision because that's how she was raised.
Most of the time I chicken out.

I can do this, but many kids can't. I always want to go out to the town with my friends, but I only have like 4 friends who can go places without an adult trailing around us. I feel so uncomfortable if I'm in town with my friends and one of their mums is just following us. Please, let kids have some times without an adult tracing every step.

I would love to do this. I sometimes already do this if I am at like a store are school fair then I just walk around by myself.

When I was younger, I always had to have an adult with me 24/7. It's so annoying! I'm glad I can be by myself now.

24 Get a Tattoo

I literally walk around seeing kids with fake tattoos! (no insult intended) In my opinion, tattoos look horrible, if you do have a tattoo, that is fine, but I think they are just drawings on your body. Kids, get a tattoo if you want when you're 18+! EIGHTEEN PLUS!

I am Asian and my mom would disown me if I ever got a tattoo...

The first thing I'll do when I'm 18 is get a tattoo

I'd want a tattoo when I'm older.

25 Eat Weed

Kids can eat weeds, I found some outside, ate them and didn't get addicted

I thought weed was something you ate when I was little.

Hell yeah! I love to eat my weed on a daily bases

Weed? That thing that grows near rivers? Nani?

26 Have a Youtube Channel

There are channels on this site run by kids where they act whiny and immature in their videos. They even show their faces which can attract PEDOPHILES. I hope YouTube terminates these channels.

This should not be here I seen some kids have channels not only adults are allowed there are spoiled brats with some account while we got good kids with channels this does not belong.

I have a YouTube channel. Some person with 5 subscribers wrote a diss track about me.

It's really sad that my mom allows my 9 YEAR OLD cousin to have a YouTube account but she won't let me, a 25 YEAR OLD, have one.

27 Have Facebook

I'm an adult and I'm not allowed to have a Facebook

You can have Facebook at any age what are you talking about

No one uses facebook anymore

Hello, I still go on FaceBook

28 Stay Up Late

I stay up late in secret and I sometimes stay up past midnight

I am allowed to stay up as late as I want and I’m not even a teen yet

I'm an adult and my mom does not allow me to stay up past 2 or 3 AM

I hate how my parents always have to pick the time I sleep

29 Start a Family
30 Be Smart

There are actually smart kids out there in the world. I’m not joking.

We kids are actually smarter than the adults.

Um I am smart thank you very much


31 Go to a Casino

I saw kids in the casinos in Vegas

I visited Vegas when I was 2 years old

They were probably kid freindly casinos

32 Be Naked in Your Bed

Greg Heffley already does this but not fully naked, underwear naked

You can go to sleep naked as a kid if you want. That'd be weird though.

Now this list is getting crazy. I hope most of these items are jokes.

Babies and toddlers are allowed to do this but not any kid over the age of 3

33 Go Skydiving

I'm an adult and my overprotective mom WOULD NOT allow me to do this..


34 Confront your Teacher

I wish! there was this one rude teacher who I would love to call up and tell her what she did

You would never find them

35 Get a Dog

I'm an adult and I want a Shiba Inu, and my mom said I can have one if I MOVE OUT (my mom is overprotective of me and won't let me be independent.)

36 Drink Red Bull

Drinking this can make your heart explode. It depends on how much. If you drink a fatal dose it will

I drank Red Bull as a teenager

I had a small sip and it tastes gross.

I liek the red bul

37 Go to Prison

Why would you go to a prison?

Actually kids CAN go to’s called juvenile detention.

Be glad you are not an adult going to prison or in very big trouble! You’re more likely to be raped then beaten by other criminals/prisoners police/guard brutality and then abundance of painful punishments and torturous punishments/consequences

No ya don’t

38 Own a Gun

Kids love destruction what better than gunfire

Oh god it's the Americans who are stuck in the Wild West times.

(I’m joking)

39 Get Friends and Not Get Embarrassed by Just Talking to a Girl
40 Get a Cat

I love cats but my mom is allowing me to have a pet when I'm 11, a year later

I would rather get a dog instead

41 Be the King/Queen of the House
42 Eat What You Want
43 Watching Hentai

I am an adult and my parents will disown me if I watch hentai (or any other porn)...

I watched hentai before oh god its amazing I guess

What is hentai

44 Be Rude and Mean

I'm an adult and I'm not allowed to be rude or mean

45 Watch Adult TV Shows

Someone told me Rick and Morty is for adults and ice already watched all the episodes.

I watched Baby Blues when I was like 9 or 10

46 Buy Your Own House
47 Go on Vacation Between September and June

Again, people do vacation during spring break and during holidays, but my family NEVER does that.

48 Print Whatever They Want from the Computer


I’m an adult and I still can’t print whatever I want from the computer :(

49 Watch Porn

Even when I'm an adult I don't want to watch it. Porn is like a drug everyone knows it's not good, but they are still addicted to it.

I'm an adult and my parents will disown me if I watch porn...

Not a good idea.

50 Go to a Strip Club

I’m an adult and my overprotective Asian parents will disown me if I go to a strip club...

It’s like the drug of the places in your town.
