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.
