What do you miss most with your childhood?

I truly miss the feeling of having no responsibility whatsoever, the time when you can just play and do whatever you want and there won't be anything to stop you. The feeling of not worrying about money, nor the worry of where to get the next meal. Well, I was fortunate enough not to worry. But I'm sure there are a lot of kids who wasn't so fortunate as me. Oh, not to mention that as a child, regardless what you eat, you won't get bloated this much hahahaa.. But, what do you miss most with your childhood?

Childhood time is the best time in your life. A child has no stress,tension in his mind.He is free from all liabilities and enjoy the things he like.He remains happy all the time and create a atmosphere of happiness in his surroundings.I would really miss the fun which i enjoyed in my childhood when i was out for picnic in disney land etc.i am really missing such moments and these moments refreshes me when i am sitting alone.Really good time . CHILDHOOD !

[b]That depends entirely on the sort of childhood you had. Obviously yours was wonderful, but mine? Save for my grandparents & my life on the farm, having had no true friends, I was miserable in many ways until I was about 16. Especially since when I was 13, I had to go live with my mom & (at that time) abusive step-dad. How I missed the peace & wonder of my country life, & my grandparents! I had no close friends 'til I was about 16 because there just were no kids near our farm, & by the time I got into public school (having been home schooled), the other kids were so far behind me they couldn't understand me, & they made life miserable for me, as they thought I thought I was "better" than they, as I used a much richer vocabulary! I didn't think that, but as I said, when I hit 16, & others that age could relate to me, only then could I make friends. I was never truly happy, however, 'til I was about 25. BTW, I'm not telling you this because I want pity! I'm only trying to give you a little perspective, that's all. My life now--save for the fact that I'm largely bedridden, & way too broke for words, is wonderful. I'm very, very happy, now! Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

I mean to say every one got caught in life issues. same like me when we grow up we lost our life because we live for family, parents and then for children but not for us.

I missed not having to worry about where the money is coming from to pay bills. I missed being able to go with friends to the lake and just having fun with not a care in the world.

I see that most of us are really having problems with finances. Whew, I so miss the days or years when I don't need to think about those and just worry about what game to play next. hehehe

Lately I have attended a reunion of my childhood school class after 50 years. It was an amazing experience seeing all those classmates now getting quite old - like me! . I suddenly realized how much I missed those days and was aware that the thing I missed most was the fact that we had no adult responsibility. That our parents were at home looking after us. It was the "known" that was pleasant, and now we face the unknown future. Memories will always feel better than present day, because we knew what happened, there is nothing unexpected.. - Derek

Not being able to just not worry about anything I didn't have to worry then. But these days every thing is on ones mind all the problems around us daily. The weather bothers me a lot different then when I was a child. I used to could play in the snow back then now I dread having to clean the steps off before I can step down on them....LOL. Boy it is harder getting older!

Hahaha indeed you're right. When we're young, we are not afraid of diseases as well. We weren't afraid to make a mess either. Whew!

Same as you...not having any responsibility. I didn't need to take care of anything besides my personal needs, my decisions were limited to myself and my likes and I wasn't responsible for anyone or anything. As long as I did everything I had to in a day, I could do it when I pleased...and I had all the time in the world to study people and understand how they reacted to situations (yes, that's what I liked to do..lol)

[b]Two things. My marvelous grandparents who reared me on their wonderful little farm, & being able to walk & even run. These are only memories now, but--barring Alzheimer's--they'll be with me forever. Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

Hello ladyee. I miss most my wonderful days playing with my playmates who grew up together with me. But now ever since I graduated from college and was assigned to work in another city, we have lost contact with each other. It seems that all of my childhood playmates are found nowhere because none is living in the same city zone. We used to be neighbors. But I am sure that we will have a chance to meet each other some day. The only problem for us is we have changed so much and it is hard to recognize each other, I guess, even when we meet each other on the street.

I love the carefree days of my childhood.I missed not worrying about responsibilities.I missed playing all day and not worrying about what other people think of me.I missed not worrying about money or evil office mates.it helps keeping in touch with your inner child to keep you sane in this crazy world.

When i was a child i can remember enjoying doing things like going out as well as not having all the worry as well as not having to worry about needing money.I can also remember that there was never a time that there was any trouble of people stabbing anyone as well as all the other latest crime.How things change.

Hi laydee! I think I would have to agree with you on the feeling of having no responsibility. There are so many things I miss. Like having to play with my cousins, going places with the family. I also miss the old shows I watch on TV that were really great.

I miss the time that I spent with my grandmother and her friend. My grandmother's friend lived in a village and when we visited him, we usually spent the night there. In the house where he lived there were two apartments and the couple who lived in the other apartment had a son who was a few years older than me, we often played together, and we had a lot of fun. My grandmother's friend knew many people and people often came to visit him. His friends often brought me icecream or small presents, and the were all very nice to me.

What i miss most... Probably being free of responsibilities and being completely free. Once you step into the real world you really miss those days.

What i truly missed in my childhood is being able to play freely, no worries! Just go out there and have some fun, play with friends, enjoy shopping with parents, vacations, children's parties... and a lot of things that i usually do being a child. Now, I'm just a busy working man... huhuhu. :(
