Well, I have a scan of the other responses. It seems that most of people want to be an infant. But to me, I don't want to be neither an infant or a child. Because as an infact or child, I know nothing about the surroundings, the world, and do not have the chance to do what I like. That's not the life I want. Certainly, to be an infant or a little child is surely a good way to avoid troubles and miseries. No matter what happens, the infant or the little child will be protected by their parents. But still I don't want to return to that age. To me, the best age is during 22 to 25. This is the most challenging age during one's life.

I would go back to when i was 6 and start school again, i should've made more of an effort at school. Even though i am in full time employment.

Hi 3lilangels. I am not going to go into any major details, but in a nut-shell my childhood really sucked. If I could go back in time though I would change a lot of things so it wouldn't have been so bad. I guess that would take me back to the age of 4 years old when things started getting really bad.

This seems to be a popular question on mylot lately. about 5 of my friends have asked this question in the past couple weeks. And my answer remains the same. NO. and again, as I said in another post... As they stated in the movie Big "It was Hard enough the first time...you know?" Nope. There might be some fun in the wild and care free world of being a child but you grew up. You should have lived it and enjoyed it the first time. and it wasn't all that fun the first time, I wouldn't want to do it again.

Ha ha. Well see I wouldn't ever want to stay one age. And...say you picked 5. Then you'd have to grow up again. Growing up = Puberty! I enjoyed my life between 1982 and 1992. After 1992 life went down hill. I was in Middle school and I had to grow up. you know? that's all. I'm good with being a grown up just remembering the fun parts of childhood :)

I would love to go back to my toddler years (which is 1 to 3 years old). People are always nice to you. They always pamper you, and if they like you, they will give a price like money, candies or anything. In this age, you are still considered cute(hehe)... I would do nothing everything but to play and bully my parents. I would always make time tired because I am very naughty. I miss my childhood so much...

I want it during my elementary days. Where i am still innocent and so curious about the life and world. Where everything seemed to be a new thing for me to explore. Life was easy then for me. I have no big problems, no painful experiences, and no lost of love ones. But I have no regrets the way my life turned out as i reached my adolescence and now adulthood. because all my experiences when i was young, it help me althroughout to where I am right now.

I would probably go back at the age of seven. At that time we are living in my grandmother's house and my cousins live nearby. It was really fun playing with them in the field (that was before now it is a subdivision). We used to jog in the morning, play in the afternoon and dine together in the evening. It was a great memory.

i dunno about being an infant all over again. besides the pampering, all you can say is..rather CRY. your shat yourself all the time, you have creepy crawlies crawling over you and you are helpless to do anything, you have all the diseases that you need to build immunity to from scratch, and worst of all..these days there a too many child molesters climbing through people's bedroom windows.

I'd like to be a 2 years old girl.I always say:I am 2,forever!" Cause when you are 2 ,you can nearly get everything you want even though you do not say any words,you can cry ,laugh,or "en,en",it's all worked. And a 2 years old girl is so so cute,everybody love her,want to kiss her.Everybody will think she is a beauty.

I want to be a five years old child. Because at that time at least I could have more freedom than baby. And I didn't have to go to school, so it's the right time.
