Benefits children have that you do not.
Children can wear dinosaurs on their clothes, think it's cool and maintain their dignity.
Children can eat a thousand cookies and not feel any guilt.
Children have nap time built into their days.
The tub is big enough for you and all your toys with room to spare.


Others?

18. More patient in learning to do things and to do them well
Most of what keeps me from taking up activities is that I do them for a few days and the say "I suck." and quit doing them. That didn't happen to me when I was a child.

25. They can throw a temper tantrum
when they don't get their way without security being called on them.

They have the luxury of being brutally honest with everyone.

27. All they have to do is cry, and someone shoves a breast in their face!
I have to buy dinner and act all sensitive before I get that kind of treatment...

28. Children don't have to work at soul-sucking, meaningless jobs.
