7 Childhood Fears Versus Adult Fears

 

When you’re a kid, you think you’ll grow up to be big and brave, and never be afraid of anything! However, as you get older you realise that there will always be things you’re afraid of, it’s just that your childhood fears are different from your adult fears. For instance, when you’re a child, you might be afraid of going to see the doctor in case they gave you a shot or some nasty medicine, but as an adult, the only thing scary about the doctor’s office is the huge bill you’re landed with as a result. So, check out these seven childhood fears versus adult fears, as drawn by Dave Mercier for College Humor.
