Twitter User Asked, “What Is The Dumbest Thing You Believed As A Child?” And Internet Delivered

When a child is born, he/she is in this completely new, overwhelming scenario, which they get to explore with time. As they start growing up, they start learning about things, from; walking, talking, speaking, and toilet training. Kids have a very curious nature which allows them to look and find all the external stimuli they can to get to know the world as soon as possible. Their innocent nature gets them while up and when it is time to comprehend that knowledge, they utilize their opinions according to what they have experienced and what they have observed in the short time frame of exploring the world.


As time passes, we grow up into young teens where a lot of things start to make a bit more sense as to how your perceptions and perspectives were before. So when we find out the truth about how our parents have told stories to us that just are not true, we acknowledge their funny memories. A thread began as Dr. Daniel Marven asked everyone to remember the dumbest things that we had fallen for in our childhood. Many people participated to share their stories or lies that parents or others had them believing to avoid trouble or just for the gags.

For parents this becomes a huge responsibility, as a toddler, you have certain guidelines that they follow to make sure the kid does not get traumatized within the first day as to what the world is actually about. Children are naive and they believe whatever is being told to them as they don’t know what the real facts are and are fully dependant on adults to help them gain the new knowledge. This along with many other reasons, kids believe what is being said to them.

Those innocent fellows cannot even get concrete evidence as to if their information is right or wrong as their experiences are so limited. As they grow up they start questioning their previous facts and believing things that they decide to believe. Doubting and distinguishing with sources of information should be trusted is crucial. That is why children are taught to stay self-aware and conscious for them to know the difference between a bad guy and a good guy and as to whom to trust because adults struggle with that too.

On the other hand, when trying to elaborate on things without having the right vocabulary and knowledge. This increases the chances for them to fall for things parents tell you or your ideologies and imaginations come into play. Adults sometimes try to struggle in understanding certain complex situations that can be hard for children too, Adults make a bit more of an accurate guess while children do not. It all depends on gaining extensive life experience and learning how the world works.
