Top Ten Worst Things to Experience As a Child

Don't kill me because of the order, I just wrote them as they popped into my head, and I'm too lazy to change it. Though, these are all terrible, and I have witnessed a few of these events in my life. It's not very fun to live off of Ramen Noodles, because your mom only has one job that doesn't pay well. Thankfully, she's a pastor now, and we're payed about 3k a month. I hope you didn't have to go through such hardships at a young age.

The Top Ten

1 Seeing one of your parents cry

You know that something's very serious when an adult cries. The effect is even worse when that adult is your parent. - Merilille

This is always hard. My little brother is a brat to her all the time, and now my mom thinks she's a bad parent - cdxtreme

2 Your parents divorce

I'm experiencing this, - Nateawesomeness

I experience this for the second time. Disgusting! 😭 - Userguy44

3 One of your parents losing their job
4 Not having enough food

Breakfast: Nothing
Lunch: School Lunch or nothing
Dinner: Ramen Noodles, Frozen pizza, or nothing
4th and 5th grade living - Merilille

5 Death of a close person

My sister, Dasire. I wish she never died. - DynastiNoble

6 Having a terrible illness/disease

I was hospitalized with pneumonia s a kid

I've suffered from many mental illnesses from a very early age. - RockFashionista

7 Not having a home

One summer I had to live with my grandparents because the DAMN GOVERNMENT kicked me and my family out of our house. My grandma was a smoker, too, so it was a terrible summer. - Merilille

8 A war
9 A natural disaster

Somehow, whilst living in Tornado Alley, I never encountered a tornado. Right after I moved there was a huge flood in the area. - Merilille

10 Rape

The Contenders

11 Seeing parents have sex
12 A murder

I mean, witnessing it, not being killed in it. You's be dead then, and you can't tell the story of how your best friend was killed when you were 5. *Stares dramatically out a window* That can scar you for life. - Merilille

13 Parents being abusive and deny it
14 Being the younger twin
15 Seeing one of your parents dead
16 A pet dying
17 Transgenders
