Hello everyone,
I welcome us, especially to the last week of the steemit engagement challenge contest for season number 3. We are in the fourth and final week of this season's engagement challenge and I'm so delighted to present my entry in this very week's contest. This week we are looking at a topic titled Childhood or adulthood, which do you prefer? Here in this blog, I will be giving my opinion on the said topic using the questions below. Let's get started.


Who is considered as a child in your country? Include age.


The word childhood has no universal definition because countries all over the world have their definition of what they consider childhood. Many authors and scholars have tried to define childhood based on their understanding and that is why Philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau considers childhood as someone between the time of his birth to when he or she gets to the age of twelve.

In my little understanding, I see childhood as the period between when a boy or a girl is born till the period they attend adulthood. Now, according to my country constitution's, a boy or a girl remains a child until he or she reaches about 18 years of age. Recall I have said earlier that countries have their range of periods where a child gets for them to call an adult. This means any boy or girl below the age of 18 here in Nigeria is a child.

Therefore childhood here in my country ranges from 1-17 years old. Once a person gets to 18 years he is no longer in the category of childhood, he has advanced to another stage of life which we call adulthood. I will be discussing adulthood in the paragraph below under the next question.


Who is considered as an adult in your country? Included age.


Just as I have earlier explained above, adulthood here in my country is someone who is 18 years and above. Once you have reached the age of 18, you are considered an adult. Once you are an adult, it is believed that you are expected to shoulder some responsibilities. You don't have to depend solely on your parents or guardians any longer.

Adulthood brings you to the reality of life itself. In some parts of Nigeria, once you attain the level of adulthood, your parents allow you to start fending for yourself. Sometimes you might be sent out of the house to look for your own house because the house will no longer accommodate too many adults. As a girl, that is the period where you will be pressured to go and get married. Whereas as a guy that is the period you are expected to look for something and start doing and also earn something tangible and support the family.


Childhood or Adulthood, which do you prefer?


When I was a child, I had no idea what adulthood is all about. Just like the contest early said, we all yearn to become adults and when we became adults we want to go back to childhood. My case is not different at all. I prefer childhood because anytime I see the responsibilities on my shoulder as an adult, sometimes I feel like those children jumping and playing around with zero worries.

A child doesn't need to disturb himself or herself about anything such as what he will eat, what he or she will wear, or the work to do they earn a living or even his or her school fees. All they do is just play around with zero worries. I prefer childhood because of the reasons presented above.


Give at least 3 reasons why you prefer childhood or adulthood


Just as I have already stated above, there are numerous reasons why I prefer childhood to adulthood. I will be highlighting these reasons one after the other again in this section.

  • Childhood has zero worries when it comes to things of the world such as food to eat, cloth to wear, solving family problems etc.

  • As a child, you have the mindset that you still have much time to stay and enjoy this life but as an adult, as the year passes by, you will always see yourself coming closer to your end.

  • In childhood, you are free to do a lot of things with no serious consequences attached to them. But once you are an adult and you perform any crime, you will immediately face the law and you will be punished accordingly.


If you have pictures of your childhood and adulthoodod, we will like to see it.

Well, I don't have any pictures of my childhood but I have that of my adulthood. I grew up in a very remote area where they don't keep too many records hence I was not opportune to have a picture of myself as a child. Since I don't have my childhood picture, I will be sharing with you all the pictures of my adulthood. The image above is the picture of myself at the time of writing this very article. I'm currently above 18 years of age and hence according to the constitution of my country, I'm a full-grown adult.


Conclusion


Childhood and adulthood are movement stages of life that everyone is expected to journey. Provided you don't die as a child, you must get to adulthood. We can't just escape being adults no matter what we do. Adulthood comes indeed with many responsibilities and that is the very reason why most people including myself prefer childhood to adulthood. Finally, I want to invite my friends @josepha, @yakspeace and @dave-hanny to join this contest.

Wao good explanation broo you said that

In childhood, you are free to do a lot of things with no serious consequences attached to them.

In the childhood the freedom of mind is a very good thing. Children are open-minded and they do not think negative about any thing.

Thank you so much for inviting me to this contest. I am glad to hear that in both your childhood and adult hood you are were always happy.

The zero worries of a childhood is what make it to be sweeter. As a child your parents will be the one to be begging you to eat but once you have grown there is nothing like that anymore. Thanks for inviting me expect my entry soonest. Best of luck to you.

Thank tou my friend for your wonderful comment and contributions on this post. Childhood indeed has zero worries and that is the fun about it.

Childhood is indeed very interesting - you have nothing on your mind when you wake up food is already ready for you to eat. But for now as adults, you will have to be providing or supporting the family one way or the other. Thanks for sharing and good luck.

Thanks for your comment and contributions my friend, indeed childhood is very fun.

We all want to go back to our childhood life, it's less worrisome and so fun to be in, we think we have it all because we have whatever we want to.

Thanks for your comment and contributions my friend, indeed childhood has it all because we dont have any worries.

You are welcome

Indeed! Childhood is most preferred. A stage one doesn't care about anything only food. A stage one becomes proud and tells what he or she will become in future without thinking about it. A stage we feel like our parents are Kings. Oh! I miss childhood but one cannot take it back. Thank you for sharing. I wish you well friend.

Thank you for your comment and contributions my friend, no doubt that childhood is the best because of the advantages surrounding it

You are always welcome 🤗

Childhood indeed is the happiest moments of our lives and good childhood spent is one that gives us good memories and happy times we wished we could go back to. As a child, all you think about is the next thing that you will do to create fun with your friends. Also, growing up with a lot of friends helps us to prepare for adulthood since we are then able to differentiate from what are good and what are bad.

Nice entry my friend, and thank you for sharing with us your opinions on both childhood and adulthood.

Thank you for your comment and contributions on this post my friend, truly childhood is the best moments of our lives sice we have nothing to worry about.

What a pleasure it has been to read about you and your childhood, also to learn about the coming of age of your country Nigeria. In my country, people over the age of 18 are also considered adults.
Like you, I prefer my childhood, those were carefree times, when we are adults, we live worried about everything.

Too bad you don't have any pictures of your childhood, it's just that, in those days, there were not as many cell phones as there are now with cameras heh heh heh, that would allow you to keep a record.

Thanks my friend for your comment and contributions, its true that i dont have any picture of my childhood and sincerely, it disturbed me too but there is absolutely nothing i can do about it.

I agree with your decisions on childhood bro. We all under a pressure pot as adults. The heat is to much for use to bear. And this is making adulthood even more scary. Nice entry and good luck for the contest bro

Thanks for your comment and contributions my friend. Adulthood is indeed scary due to the responsibilities that comes with it.

Thank you so much for your comment and contributions, indeed childhood is much more enjoyable than adulthood.

You have written with much clarity on the context, no doubt, many people would prefer the childhood days just like you, these are days when nothing bothers you at all, you enjoy all your needs without laboring for them.

In my own opinion, I prefer adulthood with sufficient resources. I think the unavailability of those resources made most of us consider the childhood days. Great entry, @simonnwigwe.

Thank you for your comment and contributions sir, your comment on this post is highly appreciated.

Childhood has zero worries when

In childhood we have worries about school , pressure of parents etc . But yeah not about the things you have mentioned .

see yourself coming closer to your end.

Death is inevitable and even childs do die. Reminder of end is good in terms of making good deeds.

In childhood, you are free to do a lot of things with no serious consequences attached to them

In India we have juvenile justice court , if a child cmirs some serious crime he is sent to juvenile rehab centre to mend his habits and council him without punishment.

Good luck

Thanks for your comment and support my friend.

Considero que cada etapa tiene sus pros y contras, dependerá de cada quien hacerse la propia experiencia al respecto.
En el mundo, muchos países poseen tradiciones diferentes con los demás, incluso, siendo niños , se les arreglan matrimonios por conveniencia de los padres, lo cual es una tradición muy arraigada en algunos países.

Gracias por compartirlo.
Saludos.

Thanks for your comment, adulthood is great since you have the freedom to do things for yourself.

You have written well about childhood and adulthood, and I can say the reason why most of us prefer childhood is because of adulthood responsibilities. As you said kids have zero worries about anything because it would be provide for them, and it seems like time stuck for kid and running very fast when you are adult. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much my friend for your comment and contributions. It is highly appreciated.

You are welcome

The privilege of parental attention, the absence of heavy responsibilities, are some of the reasons why you prefer childhood.

Childhood is a stage in which we are not overwhelmed by day-to-day responsibilities, and we live every moment to the fullest.

Saludos amigo, una gran publicación. Al igual que tu prefiero la niñez por no tener preocupaciones grandes en la vida más que ver mi caricatura de tv favoritas a tiempo, jajaja.

La niñez es una hermosa etapa y muchas veces queremos apresurar el tiempo y crecer rápido, pero lo cierto es que debemos disfrutar cada etapa porque es única en el mundo.

Miles de éxitos. 😄

Adulthood brings you to the reality of life itself. In some parts of Nigeria, once you attain the level of adulthood, your parents allow you to start fending for yourself

Yes that is true , adulthood brings in the reality of life whereas childhood is all about fantasies.I feel like it is good that nigerians fend their adults to eaen their livelihood because it helos a person to progress and prosper at a right stage.

Thank you ma.

Hello friend, being an adult certainly has its complications and that is why you prefer the age of childhood, I think that 18 years is not enough to get married but I understand that cultures in all countries are not the same. I hope you are well, take care of yourself and enjoy your adulthood without stressing.

Greetings and blessings 🙏

Very true but your world can equally even you are a child too. Death doesn’t matter weather you are young or old. Just make yourself happy before the time comes

Indeed it comes with reality of life. Once you attain that age, that's when you will begin to understand what the world is all about.

Oh! I really miss those days when i will only woke up, eat, go to school, come back and play. I was having zero worries about life. I really miss those days.

You have clearly stated that you prefer childhood to adulthood, and have stated your reasons in a clear term. I wish you more success sir.

But once you are an adult and you perform any crime, you will immediately face the law and you will be punished accordingly.

Yes, in childhood we do a lot of little crimes which we do just for fun but in adult we can't do this. The most beautiful period of our life. Thank you sharing such a good article. Best of luck for challenge.

When I was a child, I had no idea what adulthood is all about

No child is prepared to assume the responsibilities of an adult when we reach the age to be considered adults, life simply teaches us along the way.

I understand the reasons why you choose childhood, we all would like to keep for the rest of our lives, many of the things that characterize it, for example, the possibility to play, laugh or have fun without major worries.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi my friend! You really have very good reasons to prefer childhood, but as you say, it is something inevitable that time will come if or if; so q that there is no choice but to enjoy all the good that each stage has.

Good luck in the contest!

Thanks my friend

Greetings friend, I did not know that in Nigeria they did not keep so many photo records or anything like that, I also prefer childhood.

 last month 

I agree with you.

Children have zero worries. All you have to do is eat, go to school, adhere to mom and dad's instructions and play with your friends. You didn't have to worry about solving the family's problems.

But then, one can't escape adulthood as long as they are alive.
