I Miss My Childhood

I miss my childhood, when I was a kid I always felt the it would be so gr8 when I grow up, I wud have no school, wud be having lots of fun, but now, I felt childhood was so better. I never bothered about the next day, I never bothered about the fuel prices, pollution , and hell lot of other problems.

I never bothered what kind of food I was eating, but now I check for minute details before eatin outside.

When I was a kid, I had no cell phone, or internet, but still I use to meet my frnds, but now I have cell phone, internet but have no time to meet my frnds.

Somehow I wish at least for some time, it wud be so gr8 if I get my childhood back

WOW! I feel the same exact way. I love technology but hate it at the same time.<br />
I miss my childhood to, where dreaming was never ending. Where everyone told me, " you can be whatever you want to be." Where clothing, weight, and worrying about life was not a problem. I miss running outside with my friends all day and scraping my knee. I miss being taken care of. I miss everything. I wish i still had the passion today that I had when i was 12.

Dear ajdaygodbole: I loved your post, and was waiting for some to say "this". I think it's called "nostalgia", wherein we miss the "best days" of our lives. And, you are so right: as "kids" --- we never had to worry about "mortagages", "this bill or that bill", the costs of "whatever". It was left up to our parents to worry about those things --- to say nothing of the cost of auto gas prices, these days.<br />
You are aslo right about "eating". Today --- we have to check everything we eat for "preservatives", "sodium content", etc. In my day -- we ate REAL food, and never worried about it.<br />
You are also right, IMO, about today's technology: cell phones, etc. In my day --- and I'm older than you --- it was always a great joy to meet aunts, uncles and cousins, where we actually got "to meet" and enjoy being together. It's a sad commentary on our times: techonology has given us a lot that we never had ---- however that begs the question: are we happier? |I don't think so. I miss the "good old days" --- where family was family ---- and a man's hand-shake was his word. Technology? Possibly a blessing, particularly in medicine ---- but as far as interfacing with loved ones and friends? I don't think so. I think we're on the same page.<br />

Sometimes I feel like I didn't have a childhood. I was the second oldest of 6 and it seems like I was always taking care of a baby. I am not complaining though. My first youngest brother was born when I was four and when mom brought him home from the hospital I fell instantly in love with him and wanted to take care of him. I loved to sit and rock him and feed him and take him for rides in his buggy. Then as he got older there were other babies to take care of which I also loved taking care of.<br />
<br />
Don't get me wrong it wasn't all work I also had lots of fun playing with the younger kids, and even with my older brother sometimes when he wasn't too busy picking on me. But I also assumed a lot of the work of cooking as I got a little older but again that was my choice. I loved being in the kitchen with either my mother or grandmother learning how to cook and bake. And of course I had my share of household chores to do as I was growing up. It didn't leave a lot of time to just be a kid but again I am not complaining but I do feel like I didn't really have a childhood. I can't ever remember ever really just feeling like a kid. I always felt older than my years. But at least I had a good and loving family and extended family so I have no complaints about my childhood or any of my growing up years. At least I was fully prepared for when I was an adult and out on my own and for when I got married and had babies of my own.

I don't miss my childhood at all. the best thing that ever happened to me was growing up and being able to take control of my life. Oh, sure, there were a few good days, but most of what I remember (and I remember a lot, and I remember it clearly and in detail) was horrendous abuse. I'm talking about the 1950s, and things like that were deliberately ignored, not seen, and swept under the rug and denied. If I'd been born into today's world, I would have had places and people I could turn to for help. It's a different world today. There are good aspects and not so good aspects. We have control over our own lives, way more so than people in some other countries, and way more than people in this country in previous eras. If you think your computer and TV and cell phone and electronic games are running your life, then STOP! Put it away. Go out. Find people. Find activities. Join something. Volunteer for something. You have choices. This is America in the Twenty First Century. Your options are almost without limit. Electronics are an ADDICTION! Kick that habit! Go cold turkey, if you have to. Turn it all off, and reclaim your life. It is not something that is happening to you, it is something you are DOING! If it is bothering you, then STOP it!

I had a bad childhood my parents weren't around for me much. I grew up in a children's home and foster care. The home was strict. I still miss being a kid @ times. I had no responsibilities. Life was more original. Children were encouraged to make friends. I was shy and felt alone alot. <br />
<br />
We didn't have all the technology we have today that I feel barricades us from meeting real people in real life, off the internet. My childhood was filled with alot of chores and activities. Alot of it taught me to be responsible. Any structure and responsibility I have today has to do with the children's home.

yea, i do miss but i have also learnt many things. sum times when i look back i still laugh on the tension which i took on silly things.<br />
<br />
But sum times your memorably blackens when u miss print sum things when u think. yeah but 4 sure i still cherish those gone memories rather then gone child hood memories

Thanks for your insightful post. As most members have said -- we well remember our child-hood.<br />
<br />
I t was a time of innocence. A time when we grew up being a child, without the problems that we will face us as adults. Responsibilites, bills, economic woes, and all of the problems that will and have befallen us.<br />
<br />
It is of course, a reflection of nostalgia --- and how we remember the days of "freedom" from (all of the above) --- and how we only had to worry about home-work. Do I wish I could turn the time of hands back to my childhood---- of course I do. Young, strong healthy --- unconcerned about the problems facing my parents upon whom I depended --- and never thinking of death in any manner or fashion, as, in childhood we think we will "live forever". We know not of dying.<br />
<br />
If we think of our childhood --- then, maybe, we WILL live forever.<br />
<br />
If you will, it's magic to think of our childhood --- and the wonderful memories we had. It is those memories that I hold, to this day --- which help me get through life, as I approach the autumn years of my life. I am sure that we all wish that we could return to the days of our childhood --- which for many of us represent the fondest memories we ever held.

Your story make memories fresh and i get remembered my childhood, its really true that it never come back, i also missed my childhood. i consider your pain. Thanks to arise memoriess.

I do agree with maidangle7349 to a point sometimes I look back when I was a child and do miss the fun. Just the laughing and clumbing trees to see the top of the world.To hang out with friends not a care in the world.I don;t see many of those friends ,they are to busy now with work and family .Time goes to fast sometimes , if you bl<x>ink you may miss something .You make the best of what you have now but you can look back once or twice.

I would not want to go back to my childhood I was 5 when the war started so was evacuated to several places. Always to relatives but do not forget "God gave us out friends and the devil our relations" I went to 16 different schools and part from maths and physics hated it. My best time was when I met my wife and then when the kids were teenagers, I was settled in a job I liked and I took my degree part time and I paid for it myself. I was also good when I was writting a lot getting published and paid that was great. I am 77 now and I think the web is wonderful and mobile phones are the best. there is no point in looking back it has gone the best thing is to emjoy what you have got.

I really do feel your pain.I remembered back then when I had no internet or use of any phone I had sooooo much more friends back then.Now I only have about 2 friends.Also I wake up every morning feeling down but when I was a kid I was always excited to wake up and be ready to hang with my friends or play video games.Sigh I really long for those days.Seriously I wish I hadn't taken my childhood for granted

I am not sure if I am lucky or not, but I have very few recollections of my childhood at all, just the odd snapshot. My absolute best fun time was in my 20s and 30s, and then maturity kicked in at around 40, which was OK too as I assumed much greater authority for myself and others.
