Steemit Engagement Challenge S3-W4:Childhood or adulthood, which do you prefer? by @beautybb
I missed steemit engagement challenge so much and am grateful I can once participate.
when I came across this topic I felt happy and sad it was a two ways feeling because my childhood is a period of time I will like to reverse but not withstanding am still in love with my adulthood because I have a requirement from my heavenly to bring up my own children, so if I remain a child I won't fulfill that obligation giving to me from my heavenly father.
I prefer childhood, on the long run in this writing I will explain why but before then let me answer some questions required for this contest.
Who is considered as a child in your country? Include age
I am from the eastern part of Nigeria, and a child happen to be any human from the day of birth to 18yrs is considered a child .
But there are some stages of development in any childs life, we have the babies who can't do anything for themselves, they only cry and drink milk, then we have the toddler who are between the age of 1-2yrs old then we have a child who can assist in the house choirs.
Who is considered as an adult in your country? Include age
An adult is any human from the age of 18 till whenever the person dies.
An adult is anyone who have the right to make life decisions for himself and face the consequences of his or her life decision.
An adult will be responsible for any child kept on his or her care.
Childhood or Adulthood, which do you prefer?
In a simple sentence I prefer childhood.
Give at least 3 reasons why you prefer childhood or adulthood
If there is any way do some back forward I would have loved it Soo much to go back to my childhood.
A time when my father comes home everyday and give me one egg, a time when no body wants to see my tears because I was my parents only child for so many years, I got all the needed care as a special child.
I was not responsible for anyone or anything, I enjoyed so much freedom and love from people around me.
But now as an adult, I am suffering from one big sickness;
I am responsible for so many things, as the first daughter and the bread winner of my family I have to work so hard to put so many things in place both financially and otherwise.
I have myself to sort out, when I was a baby before I cough twice my parents will rush me to the hospital, I remember when I was sick and my parents had to take turns in carrying me because they don't want me to cry, but now no one carries me😭😭😭, I have to carry myself and carry others join.
I so many bills to pay, and is my responsibility I have to pay them so I will need to work hard to pay those bills.
If you have pictures of your childhood and adulthood, we will like to see it.
I don't have any picture of my childhood but I have pictures of now that am a big adult.
There is one Nigerian song that says that adulthood is a scam.
Honestly sometimes it seems like adulthood is a scam because no one will ask you if you need anything instead you are expected to give people.
But the truth still remains that adulthood is a stage of life everyone prays for because it is a blessing from God and a time to gather some experience in life that an adult can use to educate younger ones as they grow to become an adult.
I hereby invite @ruthjoe, @donpearl, @sammylove to join in this contest.
