If you are a parent, you know all too well how fast your child grows up.

Before you know it, he or she will head out the door and off to college or elsewhere.

With this in mind, you want to enjoy your child being young as much as you can.

That being the case, do you ever look at your son or daughter and wish you had your childhood back for a period of time?

Sure, there may be some things you did not care for as a child, but you may want much of that time back anyhow.

So, how can you get some of your childhood back?

What Stood Out When You Were a Kid?

In reflecting back on your childhood, what stood out most?

For many kids, it is the carefree lifestyle that they often get to enjoy.

Sure, going to school and other responsibilities during that time are important. That said many kids like that they can be void of some or many of the things their parents have to go through.

If you yearn to get some of your younger days back, some of the ways to go about it include:

  1. Childhood days – From the early things you remember until you left home, note the memories. For many adults, things such as trips, important dates in their lives, family and more stand out as kids. For some, things like a TV show or movie could even remind them of childhood times. You may hark back a time or two when you do a Revenge of the Nerds movie review. That iconic film is the movie of all movies for many people willing to label themselves nerds. Face it; most kids had some nerd in them back in the day when you were growing up. Fast-forward today and the same still holds true. Seeing a movie, TV show from your youth or other entertainment can make your reflect rather fast. The hope is it makes you smile and not cringe too much.
  2. Keeping in shape – As you get older, it can definitely be a challenge to stay in shape. Due to responsibilities like work and family, you can be rather tired out at the end of the day. That said you want to do your best to keep in shape. If you work out on a regular basis, you have the opportunity to stay young at heart. You might even end up playing on a team or two in your community. Softball, basketball, tennis and other sports often have leagues in communities. As such, consider joining one or more if you have not up to now.
  3. Stay young at heart – Although your muscles may tell you otherwise at times, do your best to stay young at heart. Do not fall into the trap as you get older of feeling like you can’t always do what you did when you were younger. Sure, getting older does more times than not mean slowing down some. That said staying young of mind is important. Do things that keep you active and even remind you at times of being a kid again. When you do, it provides entertainment for your children seeing a parent act like them.

Now, are you ready to get back some of your childhood?
