Do you miss the treatment your parents gave you when you were a child? For me I miss it a lot. Since I'm already grown up, I miss the way my mom and dad prepare my food, buy me toys and other stuff. I miss their kisses and the way they hug me me often. I miss the way they treat me as a baby and the like. I actually miss everything.

As a child i hardly got attention from my parents. We were three children and we always had the lack of money. My mom and day used to work whole day. We used to come from school and off to play. We used to see other parents accompany their children to school. We used to crave for attention. For some time i had a hatred towards my parents. I used to make them responsible for what i have lost. But the day i satrted feeling myself in their shoes. I understood what they did to keep me happy and satisfied. I never complain anymore. I love my parents and that they have done for me.

It's really a sad thought that some parents do have a little time for being with their kids because they need to work. In as much as they wanted to be with us, they are also hinder because they prioritize their job just to give us what we need. It's good that you came to realize that you're parents have worked hard to provide. A little understanding is all that they need from us too.

I don't miss the way my parents treated me so much because I enjoy being a grown up, but I do miss the times we had. We lived in a big log house on the river and played in the snow in the winter and in the hayfields in the summer. Mom had a garden and we had a couple of milk cows. Everything good!

Hi cheatedaphrodite! I definitely miss everything. I miss the time when my mom would wake me up early in the morning to go to school and my breakfast was ready. I miss the time we watched tv together. I hope it will happen again but I know it's impossible because I am thousand miles away from them now.

You will surely miss that because you were treated well and though you are far away from her now, all you need to do is pray that she would just be fine and perfectly healthy.. Spend your vacation (if you have) with her and make sure every moment would be worth it.. Take care!

You would be there someday, I know God would not allow us to keep missing the ones we love. Just pray for it and He will surely grant it. God Bless!

hi,cheatedaphrodite i did not missed the treatment of my parents during my childhood but, before my parents used to schedule everything and they used to look after everything and where as now days has changed and everything should be scheduled by myself. But one thing i can say childhood days are the "Golden Days" which we cannot get back again but leaves us with memories.Isn't it?

Yes, it is indeed Golden days for us and we should be glad that we were at that time before. Now that we are grown up, looking back those memorable days are just what we can do since we are now full with responsibilities for our selves and for our parents as well.

I miss my childhood not because of what my parents treatment because I don't have a good memories of it. What I miss during my childhood days is the feeling of less responsibilities and innocence. I love going on exploring things, playing with my playmates and as if everyday is a new discovery.

Yeah innocence and curiosity makes you wanna go back to being a child. It's like you're having a happy go lucky life unlike when you are already grown up, you need to be responsible of everything and it sometimes bother us a lot..

I don't really miss the way my parents treated me. I was also treated very different than my other siblings though. I miss spending time with my aunt, she loved me a lot and so did my grandma. They were more like mother's to me than my mom was. My dad got hurt when I was young, he was always hurting so he yelled a lot in a verbally abusive way so I don't really miss any of it. I miss the fun I had with my aunt and my cousins though. We had SO much fun =)

It is a fact that some had bad and terrible experiences with their own family when they were a kid and it's so sad to think that they don't even feel loved, protected and comfortable. It's a blessing when we have other relatives who are aware and would give us unconditional love that we should be getting from our parents. I know that not all missed their childhood days because they experience miserable life and I hope that they would not let their own kids experience what they had instead it will remind them to love their kids without any conditions.

I don't really miss the way they treated me, but I do miss being a kid. When I was a kid I could goof off and make up crazy stories and it was okay because I was a kid! Once I got into my teen years adults started yelling at us if we were still acting like kids, and now that I'm past 18 it would be obscene for me to want to play with a fluffy pink unicorn in public. I miss playtime. That's why I love kids so much. You can act like a kid around kids, and no one thinks it's weird!

Being playful is what everyone really misses when he/she is already grown up. I also miss a lot of play time as well as my toys and playmates that's why I love the movie Tot story.. :)
