To be a kid again

Connor was watching a cartoon where the grandpa was temporarily turned into a kid again. That started me thinking about how cool it would be to be turned back into a kid - or even a teenager - again, with our current level of mental maturity and knowledge. To be given bodies with no arthritis or backaches, with super energy levels, and no real responsibilities! Oh, the things I would do. I would apply myself in school more - just for the sheer pleasure of learning. I would soak up the time with my parents - I know I did not do this when I was young. I would not waste as much time being upset about trivial matters.

I know it's impossible, and if you really think through it, not a good idea. But still, it's kind of fun to think about being so young again. What would you do?

i would definately apply myself to learning more in school and appreciate my parents for all that they did and gave to me.
i know these are the things that you said you would do, but i really was a rebel and not a very good kid and i regret that i did things to my parents that no parent deserves.
i would try to enjoy being a kid and not try to grow up so fast and move out on my own.
