Being an adult can be a bit stressful at times. OK, maybe super stressful. But do you ever think about how easy you had it years, and years ago? No matter how hard it was growing up and learning what life had to throw at us, we all relate to a global scale, and that is, childhood was the easiest time of our lives.

Today, I will enlighten you on 10 relatable examples on how childhood is way better than adulthood.

1. No one ever judges you, you're a kid for God's sake.

Getting caught picking your nose as a kid might ruin your day. But being caught picking your nose as an adult will ruin your life.

2. You never have to hunt your own food.

Having provided breakfast, lunch, and dinner could be compared to the luxury we all dream about: basically having personal butlers and a team of home chefs.

3. The world WANTS you to sleep.

The forced naps we all fought, cried over, and took for granted will always be the cornerstone of our daydreams at the office.

4. No one needs your help with anything. What can you do? You're a little kid.

According to adult, about all you can do is be dumb, moody, and weak. People thought we were good for nothing, but now we need to pull out all the excuses...or burn all the bridges.

5. The only reason you need money is for that hot new toy!

We didn't need as much to keep us happy. The crap-painted-and-made-in-Hell "toy" from the dollar store not only kept us busy and happy, it made our day, it...until it broke the following morning.

6. Say something stupid? Don't be ashamed; adults think it's funny.

No matter how sure you think you are as a kid, you're wrong. And the adults won't be mad or hold grudges for it––They will laugh at your face and make you famous on YouTube.
Kids say the darnedest things.

7. The only work in your life is homework, and c'mon, it's 2 + 2.

It wouldn't matter if you just weren't feeling it. You might get yelled at, but it's perfectly fine if you "just didn't want to do it today."

Unlike a real job.

8. No matter how badly you screw up, the worst you'll get is a spanking or time to relax in your room all day.

No police, no prison. Even if you murdered someone, they might just have you say "sorry" to the family. Just make sure you never do it again, okay?

*Rustles your hair* Okay, now go play.

9. Your little hands will never be trapped in a can of Pringles.

It was the one thing you could do that no adult could. You're totally above everyone!

10. Responsibilities in the life of a child are all of none.

Kick back, relax and grab the popcorn.

Watch your parents stress about all the responsibilities they have to go through to keep you alive!

Whose choice is it? The parent? The player? There are a number of reasons that a kid may sit out of high school soccer, and to be completely honest; It is a huge mistake. High school soccer is the final piece in the puzzle that takes a player from above average or elite, to college ready by the end of their senior year. Every year thousands of talented athletes don't play for their high schools. Why though?

As they tend to say, its the most wonderful time of the year! People have begun to compile their Christmas to-do lists in anticipation for the season of sugarplums and gingerbread.

The history of the Christmas to-do lists goes back hundreds of years, almost as old as the holiday itself, however, people tend to fall out of this habit as they get older. This is unfortunate, as the theme of Christmas tradition can add bundles of the spirit of joy to your families.
