When I was little I knew my grandparents, but I didn't know that grandparents meant my parents' parents. When my mom talked about her parents, I thought she was talking about other people I had never met.
I used to believe that when my father went out from home he spied me with cameras to control if I payed videogames or I did my homework
I used to believe there are two types of grown-ups.
/ Type 1 would be the people who get married, become parents, and go to "work" (usually in an office) every day.
/ Type 2 would be those with an "actual profession" (as opposed to office workers) For example: teachers, bus drivers, firemen, etc. The main difference, however, would be that these people stayed single for their entire life, and couldn't have children.
/ In other words: Type 1 help raising people who would then decide between type 1 and 2, whereas type 2 serve the entire community.
I used to believe that my parents' real names were mom and dad!
I used to believe that a godparent was a biological relative, possibly a really old one (like a great-grandparent) since 'God' was supposed to be an old man.
Ok... You know when grown ups say: "You can be anything you want when you grow up" that it only means like a job? Well, my brother took it way too literally. My mom asked my 5 year old brother what he wanted to be, and he said, get this, a "Zoura" from Pokemon. She then looked at me, I was 13 at the time, and she asked what that was. I then spent an hour explaining Pokemon to my parents. And now Pokemon go is out? Oh my...
My daughter used to believe that when someone is fired from their job, it meant it literally.
I used to believe that if you kissed a boy at a young age, that boy will be your sweetheart when you become a grown up, no matter what. I saw a little girl kiss 3 boys in a row and they all ran screaming in horror. I then wondered how someone could have 3 sweethearts and believed that until I was 9. I'm 10 now.
Still have no idea where that belief came from. I'm a strange kid.
I used to believe that my parents' names were just mom and dad, i had no idea they had real first names until i found my mom's driver license which said "Lucy" on it, and i asked my mom what that means and she said it's her first name, I didn't believe her because I thought her name was just "mom"!
I used to believe that fairy godparents were real like in the TV show fairly odd parents. I would try to act as miserable as i could so I could get fairy god parents, but it didn't work. All I got was a sore throat, and grounded for 5 days.
