Childhood is a time in your life when youíre fed three meals a day that you didnít lift a finger to earn the money to buy, shop for or prepare, but you canít wait until youíre grown-up and can eat anything you want to, any time you want.

Itís a time when you're carted around in a vehicle that someone else is paying for, keeps insured and fills the tank with gasoline, but you canít wait until youíre free to go anywhere you want anytime you want to go.

Itís a time like no other when you can enjoy playing in those magical carefree twilight hours of a warm summer evening without worrrying about whether you have something cleaned and pressed for work tomorrow, but you canít wait until you can earn your own money and spend it any way you want to.

Itís a time when you have a warm dry place to sleep every night, and laying your head down at bedtime, you donít have to worry about whether the bills will be paid so youíll have that warm place to sleep tomorrow night, but you canít wait until you can stay up as late as you want and not have a stupid bedtime.

Childhood is a time filled with discontent. No matter what your situation itís very likely that you hate it. There are way too many bosses, far too many rules, and you canít wait to grow up and be free!

Childhood is wasted on the young.

i understand that this may be your opinion, but it is NOT true. Childhood is a time of precious memories, and your childhood makes you the adult you are, or will be...God says we should have faith like children...

I actually enjoyed this piece. I know that many, many children feel this way. Even I did sometimes and I had a very happy childhood. It's only natural for kids to want all the things parents say they can't. Freedom is very alluring. I may be wrong, but I found this story humorous.
