I think sometimes the curiosity of a kid is extremely rediculous. When i was 3 or 4 years old,i named a nickname to a villager while he was farming in front of my old house! One day in winter,while i was taking care of the fire in the stove for my grandma,i lighted the stover in the kitchen on purpose!fortunately my grnadma and my father came home in time to stamp out the fire,but one of the kitchen corners was burnt!i lighted it for fun but i never thought of such a consequence at all then...

Hehe, that was really stupid... I think when i was a toddler then i remember my mother used to go to a some of her rich friend in the church for an activity, and they have a flower garden there, and then i saw some of the plants i dont remember what is it i think it's a rose then it has a buds, maybe some of the buds starting to blossoms, to my curiosity i started to reach for it to pick it up, you know toddlers are very curios, but the owner when she gazed upon me she shouted immediately to warn me not to pick those, so my mama carry me to stay away from the buds, but when they are busy, i did went back to the buds and started pulling them and crash them in my hands, as for the owner to her horror her beautiful plant went very damage and she was so dismay at me and she scolded me. and then i cry. thats all i remember from that scene though.

Stupid? What wasn't? No really..... I went off down the ditch bank with friends and grandma came after me with a switch and used it on me all the way home. That was when they did that. I did alot of stupid stuff. Not sure how much room on here there is to tell it all.

The only thing comes to my mind now is one spring day when i was around 10yrs. I do not know what made me think of doing this but i tore up a bunch of paper into very small pieces. Then i went to see if my grandma was sitting by the big picture window below my bedroom window. She was so i made it 'snow'. I ran down stairs all excited to ask her if she saw it snow. She answered ,"yes, now im going to watch you go out there and pick it all up."

Reminiscing my most 'stupid' thing in my childhood is not that hard to think about. It may seem wrong but the good thing we had our excuse - being a child - . This I know is stupid for I could remember myself picking money from my parents' pocket and sometimes i could still recall from someone who did put their trusts on you. So bad after all yet recalling it would leave a smile on my face knowing that I am not that kind of person now. :)

I believe that you can dig sums of money to your parents from your pockets some day.

I've done a lot of stupid things in my childhood and I think that's but normal. I remember when I was about 5 or so, I was with my mom in the laundry area and I was left playing with the water on a small drum. I think I was using a stick while I was making ripples and circular motions on the water. I was actually having fun back then up until I dropped the stick I was holding. The stick was at the bottom of the small drum. I think the drum was about 2 or 3 feet and then, the stupid me just tried to pick up the stick at the bottom of the drum. While I was reaching for it though, I just tumbled on the drum and almost got myself drowned as I was there for a minute or so in an upside down position. Luckily, my mom was not that far away and so she pulled me back up. I was scolded and I wasn't allowed to play there anymore. I was sent to my room. That memory is still so vivid. I would have drowned if not for my mom.

That was a call!you got yourself upside down on the drum and you were really in danger.

It was really close. Good thing, my mom was there. I think that's where I got my fear of swimming or drowning. Anyways, every time I remember it or any of my family members remember that incident, we laugh about it all the time. I don't know how I looked back then, all wet and scared and really looked so stupid upside down.

I think that children can do a lot of stupid things. it is just part of the growing up process. I remember one time i skipped school to go across the street to the donut shop. i was not looking at the time and i went home too early. My father came home from work and i knew the punishment was coming. I ran outside and hid. that made the punishment all the more harsh when my father found me outside. Looking back, I can see that the day off was just not worth it.

Some recalls are better left in the past. they are less embarrassing to us that way.

I've forgotten about the stupid things I've done in my childhood days. It's either there are too many or there are none at all. I did remember alot about my brother's stupidity though because I was the one whom saw it, having a good laugh about it as well as tease him too. When it come to my own, I can only remember vividly about confessing my love to a crush way back when I'm just 6 years old?

Yep, I admit that I was stupid when I was a Child. Even I am till now : D (Then what?) Let me share some my childronhood. I often attended the wedding of the friends of my parents. It was very happy recall. One time, I was taking with some folks, I told them I will join my parent's wedding next time:::::DDDDD Another thing, when I was in my grandma's, some folks asked me: When did you come here? I thought abt it, said: I came here tomorrow..........

I did a dumb thing one time (well probably more than one - but I'm only sharing one!) we used to go up to the local grocery store and climb up on the building and jump off into the bin of cardboard boxes. We could play there for hours! Then one day the bin was empty and I thought, "well it's not that much further than when the boxes are in there" and I jumped to the concrete ground.. I thought for a few minutes that i would never walk again my feet hurt so bad!

Kids are curious by nature. That how they learn, grow and develop. Good thing your relatives came in time to put out the fire. Things could have been a lot worse. So for me, no I can not think of anything to this extreme that I done as a child. If where was anything, i'm sure my mom would have shared this information with me already. I'll ask her if I've done something stupid as a kid that is remember-able.

Oh...you think it's fun. Well,you're just 3 or 4 yrs old then,that is forgivable. The only stupid thing i did,or as far as i could remember is when i leave the pig pen open,so all the pigs came running here and there and i don't know what direction to go,or should i catch the pigs one by one . I guess i am 6 or 7 yrs old by that time

It was late at night, my parents were in bed, and I was entertaining my friend in my room. While playing with my chemistry set, the curtain caught fire. I ran to the bathroom and got a tiny cup of water, ran back to the room, and splashed the blaze. It didn't go out,so I dashed back to the bathroom to fill up the cup. When I got back to the room, I found that my friend had smothered the fire.
