It was the early 90s and women's shoulder pads were still a thing. One of my aunts always wore them, and I was scared of her because I thought her really pointy shoulders were part of her body!

I used to believe that you were either black or white. Like if you weren't African-American, you were white. If you were Mexican-American you were white. I didn't even think about Asian-Americans. I believed this until my freshman year of high school, when a girl who was Mexican made a joke about white girls. Then I said, "You're white!" and she said, "No I'm not. I'm Mexican."

I was too scared to go to the bathroom, at night, because I thought there was a monster that would jump out of the bath tub and attack me.

No wonder why my parents were so frustrated in the morning...

I used to think that if you wore underwear made for the opposite gender, you would become the opposite gender. My brother wanted to be a girl, so i gave him a pair of my underwear and he wore it but didn't turn into a girl. He was so disappointed...

I believe It used mainly on one thing every child when it is small believes, Santa Claus. Believe that he would enter the chimney with his reindeer, they would eat all the food that we put there. Other very common things are to believe in fairy tales especially in the Pinocchio tale that many parents use as an example for the child not to lie, but because his nose would grow. These are some of the things I believed when I was a kid.

when I was little all I did was gaze at my reflection. It was sad and it became my best friend. I thought it was real and it copied my every move. when I was little I didn't believe that it was another world but still in our world but the other side of the wall and the person in the mirror was my unbiological twin

When I was 7 and discussing the lion king with my friends, my best friend somehow got this idea that you could become a warthog if you got too many warts. He just guessed that and we believed it.

Me and my friends liked the Lion King and wanted to be a warthog like Pumbaa, so we tried a lot of methods to get warts. First, we tried using diaper rash cream and hand soap together on our arms and legs to get a wart. It didn't work. Then we tried other ways we could think of. They all failed. My best friend told me that we might get warts tomorrow and the day after that we'll become warthogs.

We all got excited and couldn't wait until 2 more days! I woke up the next day and checked myself in the bathroom, I didn't get a single wart! I just got a small rash on my arm. Then the day after that, I expected myself to turn into a warthog in the morning. I didn't. Then after I went outside, my friends were there and they had rashes on their arms too. When my mom asked us where we got the rashes, we said we were trying to gets warts to become warthogs. My mom told me that you can't become a warthog no matter what you do, and that the methods we tried caused us to get a rash. We felt stupid and got so disappointed.

TL;DR:Friend convinced us that we could become warthogs, we got rashes instead, and got really disappointed when our mom told us the truth.

I used to think deaf people didn't have ears and that's why they couldn't ear. I got confused when I met a deaf girl at the playground, and I said "You're deaf? You don't look deaf to me". After my mom asked why, I said "Because she has ears! Deaf people don't have ears!"

When I was a little girl, my mom and my aunt both wore glasses, and my dad and uncles didn't. I spent a good amount of time believing that all girls would need glasses when they got older.

I wear glasses now. Go figure.
