It's hard to act as a child but I guess I will just be natural. I am 6 this year and I don't see much fun in growing up. Why does anyone want to grow up anyway?

Wheal not really i only act like a child when i am really hiper and i cant control my self and i have to do something i usually start to run around, bounce, jump over things like a little kid but that happens about once or twice in a month worst case scenario once or twice a week :)(this is because i miss out on a workout and i have surplus energy ).I am usually calm and collected but hey every body's a kid on the inside and if somebody tries to tell me that he doesn't act like a child sometimes wheal than his lien.

I'm twenty-four and I most certainly still act like a child. It's perfectly healthy to let loose and have fun, run through the rain, giggle at silly things, etc.

yeah i do feel that at times i am behaving childish. When i am with my friends and i do talk sarcastic when i take things on a wrong note. I am soo sensitive and gets hurt easily. When i am a little hurt or disturbed i behave childish with my friends or family members. Offcourse they do mention that to me soo easily.

yes. everyday especially at home and with my boyfriend. i am a light hearted person and i love giving life to that small kid inside of me. keeps me young all the time, thus making me laugh while looking at the brighter side of everything. i love babytalking and watching kiddie shows... most people hate barney but i love watching barney. and i enjoy the songs and dances. i do have fun watching animes, too. so, yes, obviously, i do act like a kid most of the time.

Well, I do act like a child in most of the cases still as I love to be so. I really miss being a child anymore and hence try to recall all that is done in the childhood. Yes it sometimes bothers others a lot and so act accordingly with people. I act elderly when with elders and childish when with children and when we(myself and my husband)are only there we enjoy talking so sweet as if we are two kids. People around us sometimes say "You both are only kids and why do you need kids so soon". But its nice to enjoy being a child at times. It indeed takes out all the strain and helps to enjoy the life with lots of fun.

When I am stubborn I am accused of acting like a child but not all children are stubborn LOL I think every once in a while, rarely though, I need extra loving just like a baby and well that does feeling comforting.

Yeah, I do act like a child sometimes when I want things to go my own way. I guess that no matter how old we are, there's always the child in us. Whining, complaining, and begging! Haha! Well, there are times when people call me childish but I don't care what they say. I will act how I feel and I will control how I act, too. We should take care not to hurt other people's feelings too but it does not mean that we should act how other people expect us to act. Just be yourself, that's the best we can do.

sometimes i still do, especially when im overwhelmed with my emotions. and its fun to acting sometimes like a child. it seems you're free to do whatever you want and nobody's holding you back. acting like a child is being true to yourself, but it should be done with caution and at the right place and time

I always act like one in heart at least. I collect toys and stuff and I'm 27 too :)) But my parents especially my mom likes to say on occasion we act like children still :(( which isnt nice. Honestly, our parents act like kids ALL the time especially my dad who has fits and gets all upset SO easily like he is 2 yrs old not way older :((

Haha, yup I do act a child..in fact my hubby has told me innumerable times to "grow up!" I can be very kiddish at times, it sure is fun and I don't care what others say. All of us have an inner child, for some its alive and for some others its not.

I don't have time or the mentality to act like a child in my life. I am always responsible for everything that goes on around my household. Sometimes I can cut loose and have some time to do some fun things that I used to do when i was a kid but that is about it. I have tried many times to do enjoyable things that I used to love to do as a child, but it just isn't the same any more in my adult years. I just cannot have fun at it. My hubby acts like a kid all the time and I think it is great because he is 15 years older than me. I also have a 15 year old daughter too and they act like kids together, LOL. I miss them good old days when I could be and act that age when I was younger.

I think it does continue throughout our lives. For me, I sometimes notice that I am acting like a child when I am jealous of something someone else achieves. I think to myself, "Why couldn't I do that?" Then I realize that is silly. I should just be glad for the other person and if I want to be recognized for something similar, then I will have to work for it like they did.

in rare times if I feel very very safe and loved, otherwise no maybe it could be from having hard things happened to you when you were small, you still have to go fix them maybe its ok sometimes I think to be a woman/child realize you are really an adult though, thats mostly what and how you have to be totally ok to become 5 once in awhile for fun or to let off steam or be cared for though

Ha-ha! Yes! But that's really rarely. I try to act more seriously, I hate unserious people, some that act childish. My father sometimes act like that and I always tell him to stop because it's very annoying. Evn my classmates sometimes get on my nerves. They laugh almost during the whole lesson, which is madning. I hate when people do this,easpecially when I'm the serious one.
