Top 10 Things That You'll Miss When Your Childhood Ends

The Top Ten
1 Playing with Friends

Yeah I don't think I would lose my friends when I'm older but I won't be able to see them often and will miss hanging out with them.

I am 21 years old today, and I still wish that I could play with my friends.

Especially the Schubert game!

2 Lack of Stress

I can't stress enough how much I miss being so worry-free. Believe me kids, you'll lose the freedom you have now. Embrace it while you can.

Who even likes stress. It's not fun. It's awful and horrible. It negatively impacts our health and well being. It negatively affects life.

Actually, I still had stress occasionally during childhood, but once I reached adolescence, it got worse.

That is what I miss about childhood. No adult pressures such as paying bills and such.

3 Going to School

I'm about to go to university in a few months and I can literally remember when I first joined a preschool. I am also pretty young at heart too. School is so much better compared to university. In school, there is less homework and some fun field trips. Preschool, however, is better than school. There is no homework, no work, just playing, drawing, doing arts and crafts, singing, napping, eating snacks, and it's just half a day. I sure wish I had a time machine to go back to the good old days.

This is true, I know a lot of people don't really like school but for me, I do like school and don't mind it. I will miss my friends and teachers when I have to leave.

Oh come on, we're STILL children through the school years! I mean, we don't get to BE children, but we fit the technical definition!

50% of adults miss school.
I can't believe American schools have naptime and longer holidays.

4 Imagination

I find it quite dissapointing how there are absolutely no subjects that use imagination. It's all memorizing stuff.

Nope. Believe me, you take that same imagination with you well into adulthood.

I still like to daydream. In fact, I feel like I imagine MORE than I did as a small child

My imagination grew stronger with age.

5 Innocence

Remember when you didn't know anything about sex? Good times...

6 First Crushes

I don't miss this. This list entry might as well be named "first rejections", for me.

7 Nap Time

Dear Naptime, I am so sorry that I have betrayed you. Please come back. I wouldn't sleep in Pre-K, but I'd love a nap nowadays.

Can you please allow nap time in nursery or even reception in Britain.

I'm a teen and I already miss nap time.

Can I nap during math class please?

8 Snack Time

This is like the only thing on this list I want back. Snack time was amazing.

Snack time in elementary... Apart from the "no junk food" rule it was great.

Gimmie a snack imma hungry.

9 Freedom
10 Recess

From Kindergarten to 3rd Grade, I had around 30-40 minutes of recess a day.
In 4th and 5th Grade, it went down to 20.
In 6th grade, it went down to 10.
In 7th grade, lunch became the new recess.

I miss those days

12 Trick-Or-Treating

As an avid lover of Halloween and all things scary, I can honestly say that missing out on trick-or-treating every 31st of October gets me feeling a little depressed.

I'm just hoping to stay five-foot-two well into adulthood and trick or treat with a mask.

It's fun but I find it boring now.

I miss Trick-Or-Treating, even though my overprotective parents always went with me

13 Laughing

So you stop laughing when you reach adulthood? For some reason that made me do something I haven't done since childhood. I think I just laughed!

South Park is funny so this doesn't go away.

14 Birthday Parties

Damn, I sure miss my birthday parties.

I only had 2 birthday parties during my childhood. One at age 3 and one at age 7. I haven't had another one since :(

15 Getting Forgiven for Minor Crimes and Accidents

Now I get in trouble for everything I do wrong.

16 Easy Homework
17 Laziness

As a kid everyone did stuff for me. Now I have to work my butt off for my own needs.

18 Favorite TV Shows

Goodbye Hercules the Animated Series and House of Mouse. Good thing that I can still watch them on YouTube.

Goodbye Dora, Ben 10, Rugrats and Foster's home.
Good thing Sesame Street and Teletubbies are still going.

I cannot tell you when my childhood ended or will end.

19 Being the Only Child

I was the only child until my sister was born when I was 6. Then I had to share my entire life.

20 Family Vacations

Children, the time you spend with your family is finite, so treasure every road trip
