Top Ten Worst Things to Experience As a Child

Merilille
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

5 Death of a close person

I miss great aunt. Cancer is a killer, and medicine is blind. It spread very far and she just died and NOT passed away because of weakness. My dad died too. And my youngest youngest brother who died in a miscarriage. And my grandfathers who died before I was born. And my great grandfather and great grandmother. - MetalObsessed

14 Seeing one of your parents dead

My dad was never in my life. He was into drugs and illegal things. He went to jail several times. When my sister was around eleven years old, he tried to get her to swim, got caught in a undertow and died. I never saw him dead because his family cremated him and I never saw him again. I never saw him dead because he was cremated. - MetalObsessed
