21 Math

My favorite school subject. - immarugrat

I suck at math. - Userguy44

I'm Asian and my math is so bad

22 Have to Take Medicine

Bubble gum flavored is bad. - immarugrat

Grape flavored Triaminic tasted like DEATH!

It sucks that I have epilepsy - Stazemar000

When I was little I took Dimetapp, Trianimic, and Robitussin whenever I was sick or coughing. While they all taste bad (especially the grape flavored ones) the worst brand has got to be Trianimic. I especially hated the grape flavored one. I would throw a fit and run away whenever I had to take it. I even had to be physically restrained. (Yeah, it was that bad). The only good flavor was orange. I’m now 26 and I still hate the taste of any liquid medication, but I can tolerate it much better.

23 Strict Mothers

I have an Asian tiger mom :(

not 4 me! - immarugrat

My mom is strict

24 Spankings

My parents call it a "smack" and when I'm being naghty there like "YOUR HEDDING FOR A SMACK! "

25 Go to Bed

I stay up till 11pm, and I'm 9 years old. - immarugrat

So I remember at a house party at my house when me and my bro were sent to whilst everyone stayed downstairs.I asked why everyone was staying up but my mom replied with "Because they're adults and they can go to bed whenever they like".But guys, isn't that discriminatory?

Is that an insult?

One time my relatives all came over to my house for a party but I had to go to bed early because I had school the next day >:(

26 Finding Clothes Your Size is Hard

Yeah finding clothes is so hard that suits me the dress is too big and the shoes are too small!

I'm an 11-year-old ( I'm a boy)that looks 14 and I have to wear clothes for people 13-14.If I wear clothes for people my age it will be WAYYY to tight.I have hardly any clothes and I can't wait to go to the MetroCentre (a shopping mall in northeast England)to buy new clothes.And do you know how annoying it is when you find clothes that are awesome but it doesn't have your size? I'm 5 foot something and people in my class are on average 4 foot 9 and I'm the tallest in my class and sometimes people call me a young adult

27 Nobody Takes You Seriously

My folks still don't take me seriously

Me:There's a Bomb in the building!
Person: Are you lost? - Garythesnail

28 Bad Taste in Music

Not every kid likes Pop music. - Userguy44

I know, right! All the teenagers and kids like music about partying and sex! But I'm a teenager and I listen to the good music of this generation.

I think most video game soundtracks are better than this pile of dirt

This is one of the absolute worst things.

38 Being a baby at a family party

I found pics of me at a family party from 1992. There were lots of grownups there. I was just an infant at the time. I don't remember that party but I must've hated it cause not only was I unable to eat anything due to the lack of teeth I had, but it was so boring from a baby's point of view. All I probably did there was scream my head off, stare at everyone else while they're all having a good time, sleep, and poop.

I see these 9-year-old girls wear makeup (and own iPhones) and they look like little creepy adults

44 Your Tastes Are Different

I am the kid who is known to like certain foods that all kids seem to hate and only adults like - DrayTopTens

When I was younger I absolutely hated taking those cold liquid medications (especially the grape-flavored Triaminic). I am now older and still hate the taste but it tastes better than when I was a kid and I am able to tolerate the taste much better. Also when I was a 2 year old I ate baby food and it was NASTY AS HELL but I had no choice, while as toddlers my cousins ate them and seemed to like the taste of it.

My entire family likes meat and veggies but I hate them. They force me to eat them

My entire family likes tomatoes and I hate them and also I hate other stuff my family loves like pickles and cucumbers my mum forced my to eat this weird meaty thing I took a bite and it tasted like a rotten pumpkin!

I wonder what the weird meaty thing that tasted like rotten pumpkin is. - DrayTopTens

We all are a wimp. - Userguy44

This may not be for other kids but other kids are so scared of rides their the wimpys and the adults are brave can kids be brave!?

46 Your Size is Judged No Matter How Old You Are

What if you were like 20 and not allowed to go on an ride because of your height that would be stupid - jbella9000

This is so annoying!Me: I want to go on this ride I wished I could go on that for a long time!Mum: ok let the man test youMan: sorry sweetie but your too small to go on thisMe: but I'm 10!

47 Clean Up Too Many Toys

It just ruins my fun I wish clean up is killed so ya I HATE it

48 The Speech
49 You Can't Win in an Argument with Any Adult

You explain things in the most polite voice to an adult: "watch your attitude"! I believe they say this because they don't want to be corrected.

50 The Dentist

Why do they seem to torture kids more than grownups?
