I always dreaming about returning to the past.As many people say,childhood is the happiest and easiest time in one's life. When I was very yong,I did not consider how to make a living,and I was very happy because I could play with my friends at any time.My parents gave me the best love.It was unforgettable for me. Now I am very busy everyday ,I have to make money and have very little time to visit my friends. Do you miss your childhood?

yes...i agree with you..childhood is the best time to enjoy life...atleast we dont have any tensions like.....making money...&such duties.Tne innocense is something that makes childhood so beautiful.parents love you the most when you are a child only...but life is not same always no...

Hello simon611. Yes, I miss my childhood very much. When we were young, you dont have to worry much about serious things other than your playmates and toys. You can play all day with your friends and not worry what may happen in the future. That was what I enjoyed in my childhood. Right now, were always busy because of school or work and we have little time to spend with our friends because of the busy schedules. I wish we could turn back time.

I miss my childhood very much. When i am a child, i am no worry and a happy boy. In that tim, we are always playing, laughing and enjiy our lives. I usually think of the childhood. We are simple and happy. However, i have already grown up, happy seems to have become a thing of the past. Is people not easy to be happy for we have grown up and have more desires?

Yes i miss my childhood. when we were young we could do almost anything and get away with it, now if we do half things we did back then we'd get into trouble, if people i hang around with now knew i watched cartoons and stuff i would be called childish which i think is stupid. so to answer your question yes i do miss my childhood alot.

Absolutely, if i can only turned back time, i miss those days what we are playing under the rain, chasing each other, playing hide and seek until we get exhausted. Life is easy in my childhood years, that time i don't know the word "stress", but now most of the time I'm suffering from stress. In my childhood days, i was able to play with my cousins but now were apart from each other, and all we can do is chat only and call thru mobile phones. I really miss my childhood days.

No, I don't. My childhood was very hard for me. I always confused and stressed by the relatives living in my house. They would tell me they were poor and needed money and I was spoiled. At the time, my mom let her brother and sister live with us. They would steal my sneaks. If they drank all the juice and I told my mom, they would call me baby. It was just me until I was 7 years old as the only grandchild on my mom's side. When my uncle's wife got pregnant, he would be mean and say you're not gonna be the baby anymore! Everyone will be tired of you. Also, we had a lot of parties for different reasons and my mom would make me serve my older relatives soda and stuff. I didn't mind, but they would lie and say I drank them all or was wasting food when they knew it was no the truth because I was a fat child. Since I was the only grandchild until I was almost 8, I wouldn't have anyone to talk to or play with at family events and parties. Adults treated me like a little adult and told me their problems. It made me nervous and scared. I always thought I would wake up with these problems. Children were very cruel to me and I felt like no one cared. My mom spoke to teachers, and even the principal, and they told her I need to learn to make friends. :( I'm glad I'm not a child any more. I feel bad for children. The world isn't a carefree place where kids can just be kids. In case anyone is wondering, I was born in 1987 and was a kid and in school during the early 90s.

I miss my childhood too. It is the happiest time in life. In childroom, we were naive,lovely and piquent. As we grown up, we need to face so many questions we need to face. We not only in the parent's protection, we have the responsibilit and oblogation. We need to eran money, we need to handle many kinds of thing, we need to feed our child etc. If you are still in childhood, cherish it. Money can not buy the childhood.

Yes I really miss my childhood. Time when there is no tension. Everyone is there to take care of you and to look after your needs. You can play with friends visit relatives on long vacations.Life was full of joy without any responsibility. Now I am working, have no time to meet friends and its long time I have'nt met my relatives.

I don't miss my childhood at all. I do miss some of the places and people I knew then but not the childhood itself. I had a good childhood, all needs met, etc., but not an extremely happy one. My married family life has been much happier. We focus first on happiness and being pleased with the life we live....... somehow that seems to make things, like meeting our needs, just a part of our daily existence. We believe that is how it should be.

Hello simon611 I really do miss my childhood especially as it is coming up to Christmas and I remember what a wonderful time I used to have with my brothers, mother and father! I can sort of relive them through my own children so all is not lost!!

Yes, yes I do miss my childhood days. I use to fantasy about going back to the 70's I was a young child back then. I did not have to wory about paying any bills, buying any clothes, or even my next meal. It was a wonderful life not a worry or care in the world. I have found other things to fill my time now because I finally realize that they is no going back.

I really wish I could go back to the past. i have a very happy childhood. Almost everyone loves me... now, almost everyone hates me for who I've become. Wish I could go back to the time when my only problem was how to get my new toy or how can I make my mom take me to the zoo. Childhood is the best part of my life. I miss it so bad.

Once again, HELL NO! Back in school, other students got me in trouble for no reason, I was bullied, harassed and made fun of, and thanks to those jackasses, I either rarely had any friends, or had no friends at all. I missed out on so much when I was little. Same with my family life. I've had so many bad times that even with my good memories I can't remember them all. I had to get used to a nagging mom, an annoying little pest of a sister who raises my blood pressure constantly, a drill seargeant-ish lunatic time bomb of a dad, and two sisters who think they know it all just because they're older. Even if time travel is invented, changing the past would've been stressful enough in undoing some of the bad times i've been through, but it'd take forever to do, so i'd rather say this: Do I miss my childhood? TO HELL WITH IT! I'd rather not go through the crap i've been through again! I'm glad i've gotten away from it! With so many bad times outnumbering the good, I might as well keep the bad ones anyway.
