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


The Top Ten

1 Going To School

Oh shut up visitor it's her opinion if she likes school, so stop being a complete dumbass and start respecting other people opinions.

Even though not many people like school, you will miss it, meeting new friends and learning new things. - Catacorn

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! - keycha1n

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. - ivylee

2 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. - ivylee

When you are an adult drinking is playing LOL - TopTenListmaker

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

I don't even have any friends

3 Nap Time

Can I nap during math class please?

Why isn't there naptime in 8th grade? - Catacorn

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. - Merilille

When I was little I always stayed awake at naptime.Now I'm in 7th grade and I need more sleep.

4 Imagination

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

Imagination doesn't have age boundaries - Ananya

My imagination grew stronger with age.

You’re never too old for an imagination

5 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. - Lunala

Gimmie a snack imma hungry.

6 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. - PositronWildhawk

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

This can go all the way to number ONE, thank you. - BKAllmighty

Make this number one

7 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. - BKAllmighty

I'm just hoping to stay five-foot-two well into adulthood and trick or treat with a mask. - keycha1n

I'm one of the people who uses water buckets on Halloween

It's fun but I find it boring now. - Lunala

8 Parents

Yeah, if I leave home, I will definitely miss them. Time flies quickly. - ivylee

9 Recess

In elementary school we had around 30-45 minutes on the playground, in Middle School we only have around 5-10 minutes of running around a tree and sitting on wet benches, how fun. - Catacorn

I miss those days

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.

10 Video Games with Friends

I used to enjoy playing Halo Reach all the time but not anymore.

All those times playing Melee. - SmashBall

The Contenders

11 First crushes

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

12 Favorite TV shows

I cannot tell you when my childhood ended or will end. - ParasN2000

13 Good 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.

14 Birthday parties

Damn, I sure miss my birthday parties.

I don't like parties or b'day parties - Ananya

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 Favorite Videos
16 Innocence
17 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! - Britgirl

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

18 Bionicle
19 Favorite stars

Because lots of child stars turn bad as they grow up.

You're right. They start off as an innocent little 6 year old girl/little sister but then when they turn 19 they become... CORRUPT. All disney stars always tend to corrupt for example miley cyrus. - Lunala

20 Freedom
21 Having Posters of Pop Stars on the Wall
22 Unlimited sweets

When I was a younger I could eat as much chocolate and desserts as I want. Now I have to severely limit these items in my diet (especially since my family has a history of high blood sugar and I have it myself)

23 Riding the kiddie rides

I’m 26 and I am officially too big for 95% of the coin operated rides despite being small for my age. Luckily I still fit on the horse rides (which were my favorites, and they still are my favorites today! )

24 Easy homework

I wish my homework was coloring/writing words 3x each again instead of hard math problems! :(

25 Getting forgiven for minor crimes and accidents

Now I get in trouble for everything I do wrong.

26 Unlimited junk food
27 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.

28 Immaturity

I can’t fool around as much anymore like I did as a kid

29 Laziness

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

30 Restrictions

As a kid: I can ride coin operated horses without getting kicked off and I can eat whatever I want

Now: I get risked being kicked off coin operated horses (I’ve already gotten kicked off of them a few of them already) and I have food restrictions/limits due to high blood sugar/cholesterol running in the family.

31 Getting naked in the house

Me when I was 2: it’s OK to run around the house in just a diaper or a shirt and diaper with no pants.
After age 4: pants must be worn at all times

32 How your parents view your grades

I am Asian.

Kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school: I get a 88%, mom says good job

High school and college: I get a 88%, mom says I don’t study enough
