Do you consider yourself a 'difficult child'?

    When you were much younger, do you think you were a difficult child? Specifically to your parents.

    *Urm... it's really up to you to define 'difficult' here lol. No restrictions.

    Not really, I was an annoying toddler though. Everyday, mum would take me on the bus to go to nursery. Apparently every single bus journey, without fail, I would cry my eyes out, like full on screaming on the bus for no reason. My mum would constantly get looks or old ladies giving her dirty looks or telling her to 'shut me up'.

    I didn't have any behavioral problems. No naughty chair for me haha.

    *Owh, I'm also including this when you were in your teen years as well.

    I was like a mini-sumo wrestler when i was a toddler, could barely move, so mum didn't have much to worry about.

    Wouldn't say I was a difficult child in terms of behaviour, still not thankfully.

    However, I was a difficult one in terms of health... born with a genetic disease so there were a lot of hospital and doctor trips. Most iconic one was when my belly button burst... can't remember it but that's what I was told.

    I don't think I was too bad. The only thing that my parents mention is when I was put in the front seat of the car, next to my Mam. We were in a traffic jam at the top of a hill, and I yanked the handbreak out of the socket. Fortunately, we didn't crash, but my Mam wasn't happy.

    I was 2, in fairness.

    No. I've always just been quiet, stubborn and too much of a loner. I've never been drunk*, stoned or gotten pregnant.

    *I'm not saying you're a difficult child if you have.

    I've never been difficult in terms of the 'going out and drinking, smoking' type.
    I have been, and still am difficult in that I don't like socialising with my family, try very hard not to do any jobs at all unless they benefit me..

    So far, everyone seems to be doing ok; none put on a tantrum, rage or that sort of stuff when you were a child or during your teen years?

    No I was a very good child according to my mum. Never cried, just played with my toy car like a good little boy.

    I should add, whilst I do enjoy a drink or two, I am one of those rare responsible drunks.

    I clean up my own sick and the worst I've ever done is breaking the latch on the door by mistake. Apparently the hole there isn't for keys, it's for screw drivers.

    I guess it depends on how you define "difficult" really.I dont think I was difficult tbh other than my travel sickness and my epilepsy I was a good girl.Never got myself in to any bother.

    no

    but my mother would probably disagree. We don't often see eye to eye, even now.

    I was a monster child, when I was 2 I'd bully older kids into doing things or I'd refuse to eat.

    Also, when taken to the cinemas I'd run to the front in an attempt to touch the screen with my pudgy little fingers ...

    If you're from London, why do you refer to your mother as "Mam"?

    What's wrong with some of you people? According to several of the above posters, doing drugs automatically makes you "difficult". I can see no logic in that whatsoever.

    I'm hella laid back, have never really given my parents any serious grief (no more than the average kids gives their parents, anyway), yet I smoke cannabis, and I used to be a heavy drinker.
    It should also be noted that I didn't start drinking heavily until I was 19, and I didn't start smoking until I could afford it (I was 17, for those interested. Back then the age for buying baccy was 16.).

    In short, if you can afford recreational activities involving drug use, and you use them responsibly... where in that makes you "difficult"?

    Edit: You're all ****ing morons :sigh:
