You often hear adults saying things like 'enjoy your childhood whilst it lasts'.

This is because, when you become an adult, your life becomes full of pressures, expectations, stresses and strains.

Childhood is often seen as an innocent, care-free and happy time for many people.

Is childhood the best time of your life? I guess the answer to this question really depends on what kind of childhood and what kind of adulthood a person has.

Whilst it is easy to see why the freedom and lack of responsibilities that a child enjoys might seem appealing to an adult, childhood can also be quite difficult.

No, kids aren't responsible for going to work, paying the bills, looking after the kids and all the other things that adults are expected to do - but not all children have an easy or pleasant childhood.

Is childhood always happy?
I recently watched a documentary about homeless children who live on the banks of the Bariganga river in Bangladesh, and these children didn't seem to have a childhood at all!

The TV program showed children as young as 5 who spent their days trawling through rubbish on the river looking for plastic bottles that they could then sell to recycling companies.

These children were filmed working from the moment they woke up until the moment they fell asleep. Rather than falling asleep in a comfy bed, the kids simply slept in piles of rubbish under a bridge.

So, my point is that, whilst childhood SHOULD be the best time of a person's life, this is not always the case.

As a mother of two daughters myself, I'd love to think that childhood is a happy time for all people across the planet.

It can be. You are free with no responsibilities. Later, when you grow up you have to worry about everything.

Yes. Childhood is the happiest time of one's life.

In childhood we don't have any responsibilities to deal with. Childhood is the one of the most beautiful memories in everyone's life.

We can not get that time back. We can play with other children and parents will take care of everything. We can enjoy without having any responsibilities.

Yes, but you're unable to appreciate it at the time. It's the innocence. When I was little, I didn't care about how I looked or what other people thought of me. It was easy to make friends. I had so much energy, bouncing off the walls literally.

But that time ends too soon. You learn that your parents aren't perfect. You're introduced to the world on the Internet. Unhappiness sets in. :(  for me the only places that take me away from the world are love, movies, books, music, church camps, and good food.
