Remember all of the horrible things you did as a kid? Even if you were a shy, withdrawn introvert, you probably tested boundaries in some odd ways as a child. There are some things everyone did as a child that were - in retrospect - pretty messed up.
As a kid, you live in the present. Your moral compass is still in development and your curiosity is boundless. You don't feel guilt about your decisions - mostly because you don't totally have a grasp on what is right or wrong just yet. Things you did when you were little, however screwed up, probably helped you actually get a grasp on the concept of morality and appropriate behavior.
Looking back on all of the terrible things you did as a kid, you probably can't help but cringe. Or, let's at least hope so. Otherwise, you might be a psychopath. So let's delve into the cringeworthy kid things you used to do. What's the most horrible thing you did as a kid, without realizing how bad it was until you grew up?
Mrs. Johnson is still trying to figure out who that was who called her in 1994.
And your parents always believed you...
If you cut earthworms in half, both sides keep squirming...
Like a speech impediment or an unfortunate birth mark.
This has to be where "it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt" comes from.
The house is haunted, you had another sibling, they were adopted...
Nothing seems dangerous as a kid, but you probably knew this was dangerous.
If he told you, why can't you tell your whole class?
Show and don't tell!
That friend is 100% more successful than you now, you jerk.
Just to investigate.
Just to see if it scared the drivers (it did).
Just a little candy in your pocket.
The dog probably got punished when it was you who got into the garbage to get that cookie someone threw away.
Even though your county doesn't allow them.
If you grew up in a "no junk food" household, you were bound to get desperate once in awhile.
It just wasn't for you.
Maybe you pulled your dog's ears or tried to pick up your cat by its tail.
All you knew was that it embarrassed your parents. What could be more fun?
Like a science experiment, but demonic.
It doesn't count as bad if you run away afterwards.
Pets were made for petting, right?
Maybe you didn't know this was a no-no or maybe you were just curious...
"Not her! Why can't you pair me with a normal person?" (Biggest cringe face ever.)
What's the big deal?
