I Don't Want to Grow Up


"Kids are growing up too fast these days. We need to let kids be kids."

Here's my problem with this idea. I think we just don't like the idea of kids growing up, because we don't like some of the things grown-ups do.

We wouldn't have any problem with a child growing up too fast in terms of brilliance or creativity.

So, I want kids to grow up fast, because I want them to get smarter and stop doing stupid things faster. I just don't want them to lose their love for life in the process, or worse yet, turn into grown-ups.
