Top Ten Worst Things About Being a Kid

The Top Ten
1 Homework

I'm going back to school in 4 weeks and I'm thinking about the torture of work and homework I'm going to get for 10 MONTHS AGAIN!

School on it's own wasn't so bad. But when homework comes into play, it becomes the equivalent of federal prison.

Especially when its too much homework.

They gave us around 20 math problems in 3rd grade. Yeah...

2 School

I kinda like school because I can talk to friends but school is super boring. The teachers give you high expectations, there's too much homework and drama, and I'm not interested in any boys because nearly all of them are bossy and they tell me what to do. I'm in 7th grade and it's horrible for me. The little 6th graders are the full-of-themselves, childish- clothe-wearing, attention-seeking new kids and 8th graders don't care about anything except their future and their love bugs. Middle school is the home of all drama and nightmares. Way worse than high school.

School is sometimes good and bad. The good thing is you make friends and hang out with them the bad thing is teachers take advantage of you, they make homework everyday and they think we could finish it in one day

You go to school even when your not a kid.

School is really boring

3 Bullies

Honestly, sure they may be the Tall Type and can pick on you and shove you, but they kinda punch. I'm still a kid, a homeschooled kid, and never found any bully, and I am a black belt in Taekwondo, but if someone tried to attack me and they were another kid I'd Wreck them.

When I was in the third grade, there was this kid named Brady who always said I was a baby because I watched rugrats. Same thing with a kid named Aiden.

I'll just kick there ass if they tryed. I saw it once pushed him away from the kid nothing happened later. If it happened again though someones getting an @$$ whooping

It's so annoying when the bullies bully you but not anyone else

4 Getting Grounded

Same thing w/ cosmo.

5 Siblings

When I was the youngest (before my little brother was born) my two older sisters would draw on my face every night when I'm sleeping. And a year later, I decided to draw on their faces to show them how they feel when they are being pranked.

I have an older sister, a younger brother, and a younger sister. My oldet sister's calm, while my younger ones NEVER get along together.

I sure really wish I were an only child. It would make life much easier.

Especially when you're the youngest.

6 Being Forced to Eat Food You Don't Like

When I was younger and someone gave me food I didn't like I would always throw it in the trash afterward. But I don't do that anymore.

Sometimes, when my parents give me yogurt w blueberries, I put the berries in the garbage disposal in our sink.

I can't stand doing that. I'm glad that my parents hardly ever make me eat foods I dislike

Then learn to eat food you don't like.

7 Playing M Rated Games

When I was 6, I played Pico's School. And my parents grounded me and took away my laptop because we are civilized Indians and not Americans. And when I was 8 I played violent games and porn games on newgrounds. Now I'm 13 and I still do it.

Well if your mom, dad, or guardian let's you play M rated games when you're not old enough, then that just seem like bad parenting to me. Just my opinion, don't hate me.

I don't play 18 rated games I just play 12 rated games or Minecraft.I feel so sorry for those minors being told that they can't play 18 rated games until their actually 18.

What is bad about this? Is it that they will allow you to play them or not allow you to until a certain age?

8 Can't Drive

THE WORSE! I won many kart races without crashing and I still can't drive. note: I live in brazil, so I have to be 18 to drive.

My mom actually said that kids shouldn't be allowed to drive until they're 18-20 years old.

Than go racing in a kart.

Why does school exist

I get good grad3s on them.

10 Lack of Independence

If you really think about it, you are never able to cope with life until adulthood. that is not a fault on the part of the child, but the part of the parent and the system. you learn to cope with life once you are unable to rely on others, which is when you are finally alone. parents wont teach you to cope with life, because they can't cope with losing control. from birth they neglect to teach you skills, and increasingly do everything for you. they cannot stand a child who can do things for themselves, because it is a threat to the status quo. if you really think about how many times they complain about you, command you, talk down to you, and embarrass you, you start to realize that the only way to get respect and a say in your life is to move out. In addition, children who may have sufficient competence do not get to make any decisions. in fact, you are constantly monitored, told to carry a phone, have no privacy or secrecy, and even have major life choices made for you. if you ...more

I'm a 15 year old who isn't allowed to watch Family Guy or American Dad.

Nobody takes anything I say or do seriously.

Because the kid wouldn't last a day outside.

The Contenders
11 Peer Pressure
12 Everything is Not for Your Age

You end up waiting years before being old enough to do something. Once you become old enough, they changed the rules to where you have to be even older. You end up dying before becoming old enough.

When I was like 7 or 8 I cried because I couldn't play the PS2 or Monopoly with my older cousins. Even though I was technically old enough for both my older cousins and my mom wouldn't let me play with them.

This is so sad! I'm 11 and I'm totally relating to this problem.I live near a local "outdoor pursuits" center and it's so unfair because kids do boring stuff and all the fun stuff is 16+.Everything is 13+, 16+ and 18+.Can there not be things 10+ or 11+? In the UK you can get a job at 13 (shocking) and move out a 16 (shocking again).Shouldn't you be allowed to work at ten or eleven and like move out at 12? TWEENS NEED MORE RESPECT!

I wanna watch Sherlock (the one with Benedict Cumberbatch). I guess I'll just have to wait. I mean, it's not really a bad thing. If I started watching now and if I finished it, I'd still have to wait for the other seasons to come out.

13 Thinking Girls Are Nasty

Ok look, not all girls only care about fashionion. I don't care about fashion one bit. I care about my dog, my friends, my family, my music, being myself and not letting other people tell me who to be or what to be. I like punk music and I'm proud of it, I love artists and bands like Avril Lavigne, Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Sum 41 and Blink 182 along with many others, I like Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes. I love wolves and my dog Coco is the best, she was there when others weren't, my best friend was always there with her Supernatrual, Marvel, AC/DC and her 80's-ish style. There is a lot more I have to say, but I'm actually tired right now.

They were nasty then, but once they grow up things will change. I still think girls in the 1st grade are nasty, but girls my age are terrible-good depending on stuff.

Black girls smell.

14 Can't Watch Adult TV Shows

Haha when I was little I watched Futurama, King of the Hill, some Simpsons, some Family Guy, Baby Blues, and sone of the Boondocks!

I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons until I was 15, and can't even watch Breaking Bad for the rest of my life.

Fine by me, but I would like to see Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon.

Who said you can't watch shows as a kid. You can do that anyways.

15 The Stuff You Really Want is at Christmas and Your Birthday

My birthday is in August and christmas is in december, so the 8-month gap in between is torture.

You think a 4 year old needs 932487593812994329394819324 holidays?

Yeah this is annoying the only things you get you want is Chrismas and birthday it's so unfair! My birthday is at janaury and chrismas is at December! I once ordered this kidizoom and my mum said I could get it for chrismas! Which is 2 months away that is 61 days! It's like the parents get EVERYTHING and your days are chrismas and b day

16 Being Overlooked

You can run, but you can't hide.

Yes especially when your parents have to check your computer

17 Puberty

I feel sorry for those tween girls growing breasts when there like 8 or 9 and their moms like "We need to get you fully fitted for a bra! "

Hormones go crazy at the worst times possible.

Ugh! Need I say more?

This is a tough time in life.

18 Height

I've been short since 3rd grade and I've dealt with it forever. I'm a freshman and I am still short I just ignore people and go on with my day

I'm 14 and a half and I am 4'11" and I haven't grown in about 3 years. Everyone in my family is short and I hate it.

You can't help this. Everyone has a different height and that doesn't affect their personality.

19 Spankings

My family calls it a licking!

My family says lickings

That's child abuse

They are painful!

20 Go to Bed

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?

My mom used to make me and my siblings go to bed at 4:30 every day, even during the weekends and during summer. They stayed up until 11:00.

Is that an insult?

21 Bad Grades

I get redo tickets when I get bad grades.

22 Finding Clothes Your Size is Hard

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

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

23 Have to Take Medicine

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.

Bubble gum flavored is bad.

24 Math

My favorite school subject.

I suck at math.

25 Nobody Takes You Seriously

Test:*three definitions for bugs but not a bug in the game
Me:*raises hand
Teacher: yes?
Me: there is another definition for bug, I–
Teacher: oh! Blah blah blah

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