During one of my homeschool sessions with my son; he surprisingly asked me this question: “Is it REALLY HARD to be an ADULT?”
I was really caught off guard with the question especially coming from a toddler. Many things run in my mind… Do I look stress to him? Does he think I am unhappy? What goes in that toddler mind? So, I calmly asked “Why do you say that?”
He just shrugged his shoulder and said, “Well, adults have to work; homeschool their kids; go to work; take care of the family; feed the family; pay the car/house/food while kids just play and eat.”
I finally answered, “You are right! Adults have to do most of the things that you mentioned but remember what I told you? Things are not hard if you love what you do. It’s not a chore if you do things with joy and love. Everything is easy if you have a purpose or goal. I think it is hard being a kid because you have to listen and obey the adults and sometimes doing that makes kids sad and angry.”
He just gave me a hug and said “I guess you are right. Maybe being an adult is not hard after all, it is just as fun as being a kid.”
