Question: What are the best and worst things about growing up?

I think the worst thing about getting older is having more responsibilities because if you have little siblings you get blamed for everything. You just have more responsibilities around the house because you’re doing things that your parents have done for you. Out of my little sisters that I’ve lived with for most of my life I’m the oldest but I have a lot of step-siblings. The best thing about getting older would probably be knowing that I’m not little anymore. People would say, “You can’t do this, and you can’t do that.” But now you can accomplish more. I want to get older, but I also don’t. Yes, I want to get older because getting older is fun because you get to do more things, you can drive, and you can take yourself places. I also don’t want to get older because being a little kid is fun.
