I’m willing to venture a guess that almost any adult would choose to go back to being a child in a heartbeat. No bills, less stress, maybe do better in school the second time around and ENJOY those naps! I mean, life for our kids these days is just so hard, they get bored, they need instant gratification, video games, cell phones, bedazzled jeans, and so on. Have you ever asked your child what is it about being a kid that is so hard? Well, I did! And then, I took it a step further – what if our roles switched? What would our kids make us do if they could be our parents for a day? And, what would we do to them, if we were the kids? Read below for the hilarious switch.
The hardest part about being a kid:
Allison, 5: Umm, working and working out – I have to do that at NaeNaes. My favorite part was when I asked how she spelled her name, and she said A, L, L, I, S,O,N – but I do my “S” backwards!
Pierce, 5: Dumpster diving! The look on moms face, and the adamant denial that she does not make her children dumpster dive, may have been funnier! She swears its from Sponge Bob!
Coleton, 9: That sometimes kids really don’t understand
Gracie, 11: That we makes mistakes, and parents don’t always get that!
Kaiden, 8: That we can’t play all the time, because of chores and homework.
Emma, 8: That I can’t spend the whole day with my mom – cause I have to go to school.
Nick, 15: Having to listen. You have to try to remember to listen!
So, just for the fun of it, lets switch. If you as a parent could be your child, what is the first thing you would do? Would it be enjoy a nap? Maybe sleep in, play with your friends all day? Or, would you have a little fun with some get backs?? The answers were 50/50!
Telia Fogle: Yell “I’m hungry, fix me food” and destroy the house
Jami Fernandes: Get in a bathing suit and run through the sprinkler!!
Dina Fentiman: TRASH MY ROOOOM!!!
Amber Martin: Pick my nose and wipe it on the seat of the new car. Ask them to make something special for dinner, then say I don’t like it anymore. Say I cleaned my room but really I shoved it all under my bed.
Tiffany McIntosh: Eat whatever I want & not gain a pound… & then take a nap!
Desiree Rafferty: Leave socks ALL over the house!
Kathleen Winfrey: I would eat a million lunchables and then actually enjoy a nap instead of fighting it!
Sherri Tucker Tunnell: I’d yell “Mom mom mom mom” that is what I would do.
Now your kids are your parents, what would they make you do? What rule would they change? Would they have ice cream for dinner, or buy you whatever you want? Would they have a case of the “getbacks” also? Let’s see!
“ umm laundry, washing the counters, cleaning the dishes, make my bed and clean my room … pretty much everything, I’ll make you do all my house work!”
Allow ice cream BEFORE dinner, and set bedtime to 8pm.
I’d make you massage my feet, do my chores and go to school for me!
I wouldn’t make my parents do anything, I would do everything AND buy them whatever they want.
I would make my parents do everyone’s chores!
Make you clean your room, and if it’s already clean then give you a treat!! Then take us to Rogue Air!
As for me, if I could swap places – I wouldn’t. My daughter would have way too much fun with that – but then again I could always get her back by slamming my door, flipping my hair, stomping off with attitude and knowing every thing about everything and bossing everyone around! Wait, that is kind of me now? Hey! Well played Karma, well played!
