What do you miss most of all about being a child?
I have a lot of fond memory's from my childhood I think what I miss the most is going on bike riding adventures with my friends.
Being sassy..... oh wait, I STILL do that! I miss running barefoot through the grass without a care in the world!
That's an easy one... I miss not having any bills. If I could just go back to that place, LOL... I would have so much more peace. To think, I used to always say that I couldn't wait to grow up and get out of my mom's house. You mean to tell me that I was in a rush for this responsibilty laden, stressful, adult life? LOL...
awww...you too? I remember saying that I wasn't going to say or do to my kids what my parents did or said to us. The older I got, the more I sounded like my mother. She told me not to spit in the air! LOL!
I think "don't spit in the air" is very good advice haha
Playing with GI Joes, marbles, reading classics while lying in the hammock under the big elm tree, riding my sting-ray and then my racing bike at Presque Isle, the beach there in the summer time, fresh peaches from Aunt Tilly's orchard, sweet corn picked just moments ago in the field next door, grandma's home made strawberry jam, the metalic Christmas tree, the rag man coming down the street, getting tar on my feet from the road, baloney sandwiches at the kitchen door with a cup of Kool-Aide, summer haircuts from my Mom that made me look like Beaver Cleaver, my air rifle, bow, and native head-dress, the girl next door who showed me hers after I showed her mine, pick up baseball, raw green beans from the garden, hikes in the woods with my family, Henrietta the chicken, penny candy like Mint Julips and licorice, catching fireflies, Coneaut Lake Park and the great fun house there, the pumpkin farm, the smell of incense at the church, a girl named Johna, the Lone Ranger and Roy Rogers, the original Bat-Man on tv...
There's so much more, but, ya know, don't wanna bore you.
So many things. Feeling good enough to just up and run all the way to the end of the block for sheer fun. Riding my bike all over town and never tiring. Love the wonderful feelings of mystery at Christmas and maybe most of all playing with my Barbie Dolls. I was a Barbie nut.
Not having a worry in the world. I sure took that for granted! If we could only make our middle school and high school kids understand how good they have it!
I miss being in High School, when all I had to do was homework and whatever my chores were, the rest of the time was mine. I didn't have to clean the house or do the laundry, or raise kids..lol. I miss my allowance that was mine to use as I please instead of using my money to pay bills. Ah those were the days!
Endless free time to read and play. Innocent enjoyment of TV and fishing and backyard football. Oh, and not wearing glasses.
I had a wonderful childhood.
Missed most will be the freedom I had without worries.
Now as parent, my main worry will be my children. Sad that they cannot have those wonderful time I had during my childhood years as technological advancement has taken over their daily lives.
What I miss most, being born in the early '50's is the "innocense." I can sum it up with this little story...my daughter being around 5 or 6 years old at the time asked "daddy, what was it like when you were my age?"
I thought about it for a moment and got some tears in my eyes. I said baby, everything was different. First, Grandpa would make breakfast for all of us. Then, while we were getting ready for Church, Grandma would start the sauce. Then after Church, we would have dinner, of course macaroni with homemade sauce, meatballs, etc. Then later, we would go to my Grandma's house - along with the rest of the family. At that time, probably around 40 or so. Then there would be more food and in the summer time? Man, the BBQ's and pots of food, cakes, pies, chickens, steaks, ETC.! It was a wonderful time. And, by the way, you made sure you bought all you needed because there were NO STORES OPEN ANYWHERE!
Now, Sunday is like - Tuesday and I don't think it'll ever be like that again. Doesn't mean we can't act like that, just because the rest of the world is going nutso! That's what I miss. The innocense. The concept of family. Yes, I mean husband, wife, 3 kids, a car in the garage and a chicken in evey pot.
What I miss most is rollerskating. I used to do it as fun. I'm very shy to start again!!!!!!!
TCaro-- rollerskating is very cool. Get out there and tell us how it goes. I'm going to ask you the next question in the forum section, cheers CC
The things I miss most is staying home with my parents not having to worry about bills and going to school.
not having to pay bills and having a innocent and big imagination!
Other than having my parents alive (as well as the aunts, uncles, granfathers, etc still around), I don't really think I miss anything about being a child. I had a happy childhood and was a happy kid, but I wanted to grow up - and I've been happy to be a grown-up ever since I became one.
I love my childhood, and I love how my life is now.
When I was a child I didn't worry about getting old and not living forever.
I miss that.
What I really miss being a child is a worry free feeling. I enjoy every happy moment s playing with my friends.
Not having to pay bills or make decisions, the security of having parents there at home and I miss my dog Friskie.
Just being, without thinking about yesterday or tomorrow, just living fully in a moment, being in present, totally...how much I try, I can not recreate this feeling of total carelessness again...

Do you feel that children these days are much more rude/undisciplined than the way you were raised?
