Top Ten Things Kids Want to Do That Adults Can


The Top Ten

1 Drive

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

It's only a year and two weeks away for me now, but I'm not exactly in a hurry. - PetSounds

Heck yeah! Wanted to drive since forever. It sucks when you can't drive, no freedom whatsoever!

I want to drive all over the country. - AnnieCallie

2 Watch Movies for Adults

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. - keycha1n

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) - BeatlesFan1964

It's actually a good thing because if you're an adult than its hard to find the adult movie you wanted to watch as a kid because the movie is dead. - AlphaQ

I'm an adult and my mom still won't let me watch adult movies...

3 Not Go to School

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

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"


It is the most reasonable - YanRocky

But then, they realized that they had to make a living. - Cyri

4 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. - keycha1n

I do this a lot, and I am still a kid. - Minecraftcrazy530

As a kid staying up all night was fun and all but I got older and I'm not a kid anymore. At this point living the adult life really makes you appreciate your much needed sleep. - DUTCHlioness

I do this and I'm still a kid

5 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. - RockFashionista

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? - Turkeyasylum

Cherry Daiquiris, anyone? Lol - Cherri_Daiquiri

My cousins and sister started drinking champagne as teenagers LOL. I had my first champagne at around age 23.

6 Get a Job

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

7 Smoke

And what adults wish they could quit doing, right? Never want to, never will. - keycha1n

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?!

I'm a kid and I'd rather THROW MYSELF OFF A CLIFF AT THE GRAND CANYON than smoke.

8 Hang Around With the Older Crowd

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

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

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

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. - DUTCHlioness

I like to do this. I'm 15, so I'm an adult.

9 Buy Whatever They 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. - panicdownthedisco

I always wanted a cannibal corpse album

Um okay how do they

I just want a candy bar :|

10 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 - RockFashionista

Eh. I was more into dinosaurs when I was little. - higgsboson2142

I think this should be number 1... Ha! I've been thinking about that since the 5th grade! Haha!

Come on guys, admit it. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Adults don't do that - SammySpore

But they could if they wanted to. Assuming they're upper middle class. - keycha1n

12 Wear Stuff Adults Wear

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 - MLPFan

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

I want black nail polish and crop tops - AnnieCallie

bikinis - YOSHIA2121

13 Swear

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

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

I do this, but rarely - wrests

AgentofAnarchy, I don't consider dumbass a swear word, I only consider the f, s and b word a swear word.

14 Play Violent Video Games

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

My parents let me play mortal kombat when I was like 4 years old. So I played those kind of games at a very young age. - Chaotixhero

My cousin played Call of Duty at the age of 4 -_-

The only "M" rated games are halo and alien isolation and stuff

15 Go Places Without Supervision

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. - scarmark

I've done this so many times. The only place I've never been is a strip club. - AlphaQ

16 Get a Life

You already have a life! - nko32

Oh I've already got one. - AlphaQ


17 Eat Weed

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

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

Weed and Fries with my alcohol is my favourite meal. Yum

You eat it? I thought you smoke it. Anyways I'm not gonna do weed. - AlphaQ

18 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 remember at amusement parks when I was like 8 I wore sleeveless shirts just so I could make tatoo sleeves on my arms to impress the girls. lol

19 Have Facebook

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

20 Have a Youtube Channel

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.

My 9 year old cousin HAS a YouTube channel

21 Go to a Casino

I saw kids in the casinos in Vegas

They were probably kid freindly casinos

25 Start a Family
26 Develop A Crippling Depression Caused By Loneliness And Shame
27 Own a Gun

Kids love destruction what better than gunfire

28 Buy Your Own House
29 Get a Dog
30 Drink Red Bull

31 Smoke Weed

Anyone can do it. Just go up to people and ask for it, someone's bound to have some. - IronSabbathPriest

"Hey mommy I can't wait to grow up like you so I can smoke weed! "

"Daddy, I want to smoke weed, just like you! "
Yeah, every dad wants to hear that.

32 Gamble

I did this before with my mother
