Top Ten Things Kids Want to Do That Adults Can

The Top Ten

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)

I watched:Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix,Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince,Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1,Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2,Fantastic Beasts and Where To find Them,Fantastic Beasts:Crimes Of Grindlewald and Annabelle. They are all M.(I live in Australia,so ratings are different.) I also watched GOT (Game Of Thrones) which is MA15+,at age 7.-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart.

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.

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.

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?

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!

Cherry Daiquiris, anyone? Lol

5 Stay Up 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.

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

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

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

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.

My dad gave me $9 Dollars.I bought a pen and 4 Mini Chocolate eggs (This Happened at easter 2020)-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart

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.

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

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

Toddler: oH boY moMMy cAn I hAve a CigArETte?

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.

I would never, EVER want to smoke even one puff in my life! If I remember correctly, there are 4,000 chemicals in every puff of a cigarette (i think). And smoking can also make you grow hair under your tongue, GROSS! Who wants that?!

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

What they mean of "Get a Life" in this list,is "Get a Job."I have been dreaming to be a child actress since I was 7.Please wish me luck!-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart

You already have a life!

Oh I've already got one.

Still no life only air

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.

I knew about sex when I was 9 years old. Now I am 10 I wish I could have sex . Having sex with my crush is what I only dream of. I even kissed and smelled my aunt's butt when she was sleeping it's really exciting . I watch porn almost every day .

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

Eh. I was more into dinosaurs when I was little.

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.

Kids already do that! At least the ones I've met

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.

Yees!So long mummeh!Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart

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

PLEASE CAN I LEAVE SCHOOL?-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart.

But the adults will eventually find out! :(

17 Vote

So!Adults pick Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,but kids can't vote AT ALL!-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart

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

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

I agree - Unnamed Google User Remade

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.

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?

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.

19 Develop A Crippling Depression Caused By Loneliness And Shame

No one actually wants that...

I already have it and I'm 14

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

Why would any kid want this?

20 Swear

"Swearing is worse than killing a person". LOL!So you think that everyone does not matter and deserve to get killed!I don't!You need a plot.Plot Idea:
Misumi:"Ella is a Dumb @$$!"
Octavia:'Misumi is under arrest for swearing!"
Midori:"Kills Tesse"
Octvia:"You killed a person!At least it is not as bad as swearing!"
So person who wrote "Swearing is worse than killing a person",Do you feel bad for poor Tesse getting killed,or poor Ella getting Sworn at.-Silver Dolphins 1 Sparkle Heart

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.

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 Be Smart

We kids are actually smarter than the adults.

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

Um I am smart thank you very much
