It is Better to be a Kid than an Adult
I strongly believe that it is better to be a kid than an adult! Children don’t have to worry about money, you don’t have to work and you have more fun! Why would you want to be a boring adult when the life of a kid is SO great!
My first reason is that children don’t have to worry about money because parents pay for everything. Eg: bills for electricity, the internet and water. They also have to buy food, clothes, pay for petrol, a car, try to buy a house or pay rent and for holidays. How horrible! Parents must get so stressed out from having so many responsibilities. They would have to work so hard and be so organised to make sure that everything is paid for. Meanwhile. Children simply get to enjoy life and not worry about such important things.
Secondly, children don’t have to go to work. Adults may have to type on computers all day long at work. This would be SO tiring. Their eyes would get sore from staring at a screen all day. They may have to work at night. When everyone else is sleeping, they are working hard to earn money. Then they have to sleep during the day while everyone else is having fun and living their lives. Adults may have a job that they don’t like! But they don’t have any option, if they want money, they have to do it. Parents who go to work only get four weeks holiday a year whereas children who go to school get 12 weeks holiday a year. Some adults work over 40 hours a week and become exhausted! Children have a whole 12 weeks holiday a year to relax, rest, play and sleep (if they want to).
Finally, children have way more fun than adults. Children get to have sleepovers and they get to go to friend's birthday parties. Kids get to play a lot and they go to swimming pools. Whereas adults have to clean, cook, go to Countdown to buy food for the family and do boring paperwork. What a TERRIBLE life! Being a child is full of so much joy. Why would you want to grow up?
In conclusion, we believe that being a child is way better than being an adult. Children have way more fun and freedom, they don’t have to work and they don’t have to worry about money. Being an adult is a nightmare.
