Now I’ve devoted my life to making sure that I can be a trailblazer for any other African American kids or any other gay kids or any other kids that just feel weird or uncomfortable and have their own issues and don’t know how to express themselves. I want to be like a beacon for those kids now.
I didn’t have any social skills at all, but my mom noticed I was way more vocal when I had a Nintendo controller in my hand. So she’d set up play dates with other kids to come over and play video games.
The problem is foster youth don’t really have this network that other kids have.
I was always the kid down the street who got the other kids to put on a show. But it was only when I was 19, and discovered ballet and contemporary dance, that I got interested in the fact that you could have a whole evening of dance – rather than just waiting for the dancers in a musical.
If I went out to play basketball with other kids, when I came home I’d shower and go right back to the computer again. If there was a birthday party or a family activity, I would take my laptop and spend the whole day there.

Acting is playing – it’s actually going out on a playground with the other kids and being in the game, and I need that. Writing satisfies that part of myself that longs to sit in my room and dream.
My mother’s father taught English literature. When I was about ten or eleven, I could recite Macaulay’s ‘Lays of Ancient Rome.’ While other kids were playing pedestrian war games, I’d be Horatius keeping the bridge.
I was always very different from the other kids. I have an I.Q. of 156. I didn’t play sports. I thought big. I thought I could achieve great things. I don’t want to sound megalomaniac, but my whole life is about doing something for the world, from as far back as I can remember.
I seemed so different from other kids; I grew up in church and felt a connection with God, and a lot of kids my age really didn’t understand that.
Now I see other kids and their parents, and I compare them to my dad. Our dad was a really normal father when he was with us. We would get grounded if we did something bad. He would ground us. He wouldn’t call it grounding; he’d just say, ‘You’re on punishment.’ Sometimes we’d be on punishment a lot.
I grew up in a very small town in North Carolina, weird and pudgy, without too many other kids to play with. I spent a lot of time watching TV. It was my reassurance that the outside world was bigger and more colorful than the one I lived in.
I grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, watching the Tony Awards on TV. Not just ‘watching’ the Tony Awards on TV – I would record them on a VHS tape and bring them in to school and show them to the other kids.
Sending a book out into the world is a lot like sending your child to the first day of kindergarten. You hope the other kids play nice and that she makes friends.
The fact I’m blind has been a great help to my career. If I’d been sighted I’d have played baseball and got into trouble like all other kids on my block.
My dad always told me to stand up to bullies, and Bill O’Reilly is kind of a bully, and he’s the kind of kid who hits other kids on the playground. And when you hit him, he runs to the teacher and says, ‘Teacher, sue him.’
I was one of five very clever kids, the other kids were cleverer than I was and still are and are very achieving. The girls were always first at everything and I was always 101st!
I always have been an entertainer, whether it’s been joking or performing for people. And I always thought I had a talent, because I could rap and I could sing, and I did write. And all the other kids were going to college, but I just felt like I had to do this first, and if it didn’t work, then I would go to college.
It wasn’t easy for me to socialize with other kids when I got back from touring. I felt different. Like we all do, but I didn’t feel like I got all the codes. I was a little awkward.
I was impressionable at that age, and my high school coach did such an unbelievable job helping me, so I want to do that for other kids.
I always tend to write about outsiders. And what’s been fun for me is, as I travel around and visit schools, is that other kids that feel the same way relate to some of my characters, and so I hope in some way that’s helping them when they want to read about somebody that they can relate to.
Like so many other kids with special needs, I have been bullied. Kids in elementary school made me eat sand, and those same boys would walk behind me, teasing me. Finally I had enough, and I told them to grow up.
When we lived in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, my sister and I did a local play. My whole family got involved. My mom did the makeup. My sister and I were being homeschooled, and my parents wanted us to be socialized. We had a lot of fun with the other kids hanging out backstage.
I paid for my name a lot when I was growing up because other kids teased me.
Other kids could read, other kids could write, other kids could spell, they could do math. I felt like an alien. I felt like an outcast. I felt like, ‘What is going to happen to me?’
I think being mean to people in high school is healthy. It’s sort of like you’re in this situation with all these other kids and sometimes you need to get your aggression out. And if you’d had people be mean to you before, it really does build character.
I think I used comedy as a mechanism: if I could make the other kids laugh, I wouldn’t get beaten up or teased as much.
Sometimes it was difficult to make friends and be social in school because I was always practicing while other kids were getting together and doing things. But it just made me closer to my family, and I realized that they would always be there no matter what.
First of all, I was a good Christian kid. My mom and dad taught me never to fight. So I never fought. The other kids picked that up right away. They said, ‘Oh, he’s not going to try to do anything.’ They’d push me, shove me, hit me. I’d just stand there and take it.
All the other kids in ninth grade were drawing hot rods and cocker spaniels and getting blue ribbons in art class. I was getting rejection slips from the ‘Saturday Evening Post.’
I lived in an all-black neighborhood, followed by an all-white one, and other kids in the always called me Mexican in both neighborhoods.
With ‘Tower Prep,’ Cartoon Network wanted to go into a new area where no other kids’ programming was going. There were a lot of kids’ sitcoms on the air, but they wanted to really go with more of like an adventure/drama feel.
I never wanted to do anything but get into show biz. But believe me, success didn’t come overnight. And I shed a lot of tears – like in school, when all the other kids in class made fun of me. They just hated me because I could sing and dance.
I wanted to stand out from the other kids who had gone to Eton.
I’d like to help other kids with dyslexia, because I’m dyslexic. It was very hard, and I know that what I went through, other kids are going through.
The fact that I was black and desirous to do my work, the other kids would call me a coconut, as if I were somehow attempting to be white. The bullying was real: I’d get punched, spat at, terrible things.
While other kids were into New Kids on the Block, I was into Harold Lloyd and Stan Laurel.
I used to get called Lady Penelope at school because the other kids thought I spoke nicely.
When I went to school, I was already reading and writing. In fact, I was offended that the other kids couldn’t.
I make movies the same way other kids play tennis or go to piano lessons. I’m trying to get better at what I want to do, just like other kids are trying to get better at what they want to do.
It was funny being at high school and also grocery shopping and having a job. Other kids were going home to their parents, who were doing their laundry, and I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ I was super isolated. I was 16, alone in New York, and modelling.
I like to do stuff for my brothers and sisters to appreciate because they look up to me, and for other kids around the world who want to get into acting or who just want to have somebody to look up to.
Most dancers are less eccentric than driven. It starts young. When other kids are at the playground, we’re in the studio, endlessly drilling jumps and adjusting our socks.
Most great entrepreneurs I know are nothing like the other kids. They’re almost like tangent lines – those lines that seem to go nowhere. Nothing connects them, until they get out in the real world. Then they connect just fine.
When I was a kid, I was afraid of other kids.
I used to have quite long hair, and I decided that I wanted to get it cut. I’d never met the person who did it, and she cut it into some kind of dreadful mullet. It looked like a triangle on my head. The other kids were merciless.
All the music I listened to in high school that I loved and that moved me wasn’t the same music other kids were listening to in school. I got into punk rock and new wave, then dub and hip-hop.
One of my earliest memories is Mum telling me not to have as many sweets as the other kids because I put on weight so easily.
I hadn’t learned to read by third grade, which wasn’t unusual for some kids. I knew something was wrong because I couldn’t see or understand the words the way the other kids did. I wasn’t the least bit bothered – until I was sent back to the second-grade classroom for reading help after school.
Music. It has always showed me that I could do what the other kids couldn’t do. So I will keep playing and singing and entertaining, as long as the good Lord lets me. That is my life.
I grew up on the tennis court with lots of other kids. There were like 40 kids all afternoon and I was one of the youngest ones, so I always had to chase everybody to keep up.
I feel like I had as normal a childhood as anyone, but it had a certain focus. Maybe other kids focused on sports.
I used to go to surf camp in the summers, and I remember going to the beach and thinking my style was so different from all of the other kids.
A military childhood in the 1950s was very much informed by WWII. My brothers and I often heard stories from our dad – and from other kids – about things that had happened to their dads. We constantly played war games and, nearly every Saturday, saw a different WWII movie at the post theater.
I was made fun of by a lot of other kids in such a way that I didn’t feel like I was human.
Being gay, you’re kind of forced to ask, I suppose, very existential questions from a very, very early age. Your identity becomes so important to you because you’re trying to understand it, and, I think, from the age of, like, 9, you’re being forced to ask questions… that other kids maybe don’t have to ask.
My son, he is the reason I got involved. It’s been a joy to be around him and teach him the stuff that I know, and to the other kids as well. When he started playing I wanted to be involved in his hockey career. It’s a lot of fun for both of us.
Here’s the thing: If you don’t want your kids to read a book, fine. You can tell them not to read a book, and maybe they will and maybe they won’t. But you can’t say what other kids can read.
I don’t want to be followed by random men I don’t know. It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean. I can’t post a picture on Instagram without being criticized.
Other kids would sneak out of the house to go to parties and do untoward things. I was sneaking out to do standup downtown. It paid off.
When the other kids started calling me nicknames, I knew everything was all right. I have a pretty big mouth, so they hit on that and began calling me Gatemouth or Satchelmouth, and that Satchelmouth has stuck to me all my life, except that now it’s been made into ‘Satchmo’ – ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong.
Kids don’t talk like adults, but kids on the spectrum don’t necessarily fall into the same patterns of speaking or have the same interests as other kids their age.
The idea of kids helping other kids is such a great way to introduce children to being involved in charitable causes and volunteer work, setting them on the path to doing good for others throughout their lives.
Because I never attended elementary schools of any kind, I missed most of the books that were popular with other kids my age. There was an exception, however, which was ‘Harry Potter.’ My grandmother gave me the first book when I was about 13, and I read it, then read all the rest.
I appreciate the power of a White House bully pulpit – but kids listen and learn primarily from other kids. If your son’s friend tells him that the apple is better than the fries, he’s more likely to listen.
For a few years, we lived with our grandmother in Kingston, and I remember watching the other kids with their mums and just feeling really jealous. I didn’t fully understand what my mum was doing for us. I just knew that she was gone. My grandma was amazing, but everybody wants their mum at that age.
People would call me Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan or whatever popular martial artist there was at that time. I also remember the other kids at the lunch table freaking out when I brought in Korean food.
I want other kids to see the joy in reading and literacy and how, if you read about things, they become so much closer, and if you’re willing to put in the effort and time and passion, you can really understand them.
What I remember as a child is that other kids didn’t care about suffering. I always did.
When I came to Los Angeles, it was the first time that I ever felt like I belong somewhere. Not because it was wacky, but because people here understood what I felt like to perform, and there were other kids my age who wanted to do it. I didn’t get looked at as God, you freak.
I promised my daughter I’d name my first restaurant after her, but now the other kids are like, ‘Dad, what about us?’ I’m gonna have to open four restaurants!
When I was a kid, both my mom and my dad worked night shifts, so we would spend a lot of time at my grandfather’s house. He taught at UCLA and was just really into history. Before bed, when other kids heard fairy tales, he would tell us about the American founding fathers and the beginning of democracy.
I weighed 84 pounds when I was 14. I was an easy target for the other kids.
I kind of picked up the game at an early age. The way that other kids would learn what a fork or a spoon is.
As a child, I lived with being punier than other boys in class. The only consolation was my parents’ empathy – they encouraged constant trips to the local drugstore for chocolate milk shakes to fatten me up. The shakes made me happy, but still, all through grammar school, other kids shoved me around.
We lived on isolated farms and ranches, far from anybody, and when I was young I knew very few other kids, so I lived to a great extent in my imagination.
Even the other kids who people made fun of made fun of me. That’s where I stood on the school food chain.
I didn’t get bullied any more than anybody else. I think I got bullied more for being poor than being gay. But no more than any other kid. And I’m sure that I did my fair share of picking on other kids, too. We’re all humans.
Growing up I was always stronger than all the other kids. I wasn’t allowed to play with the other girls because they were too weak. And I had to be careful with boys because I’d always be hitting them and I’d get into trouble for hurting them.
Making movies was more a reaction to not being chosen for sports. Other kids were out there playing at whatever; I was off making something blow up and filming it, or making a mould of my sister’s head using alginating plaster.
Millions of Mexicans leave their kids in order to take care of other kids. That’s a very painful thing.
While other kids were out playing and doing healthy things, I read an ancient judo book with a neck hold that was fatal to so many people, they finally dropped it from judo.
It’s important for kids to know they can be themselves, and that it’s OK to have dreams and goals they love and that may not be cool or popular to other kids.
As I grow older, it’s getting more and more important to me. I’m becoming conscious and learning to celebrate where I’m from and my roots. I think I rejected it to an extent when I was young, because it was different, and you want to fit in and look like other kids.
What I remember most about working on ‘Sesame Street’ is having fun in the green room with the other kids while waiting for my time to go on camera to work with the puppets.
When I was three, I didn’t play with other kids very much; I was kind of isolated. I got used to be being bullied and having to think my way out of situations in the same way that other kids would fight their way out. Then I discovered a piano, and it became my playmate.
Honestly, I had no idea I was different from other kids until I started kindergarten. To my family, I was just Lizzie.
The idea there were kids out there who didn’t love to read and write just as much as I did struck me. So I went around schools and tried to make other kids love to read and write.
Before playing football, I didn’t fit in anywhere. My parents didn’t have a lot of money, which they spent on our education to send us to Catholic private school in Oakland, mostly black. The other kids had more money than I did. I started school early; I was young. So I’d come back to my hood and read.
My house was very strange. I didn’t do things other kids did because my parents were very strict – I stayed at home, quiet in my room.
I have so much drive and passion for this industry and the creative arts, and I want other kids to have that kind of drive, and to have a fire in their belly for whatever industry that they want to get into.
I didn’t know what gay was. There was no such thing when I was growing up. I knew I had crushes on boys, but I didn’t think there was anything wrong with that until I started to hear about it from the other kids in school.
My message to kids who bully other kids is: You know it’s wrong! What’s really going on? Try not to make somebody else’s life miserable because you are.
We hung out on the streets, played stickball, and did all of the things that other kids did.
I spent a lot of time star-gazing, writing, and learning languages when the other kids were doing cooler things in Detroit.
This may sound strange, but at a very early age, at around 3, I was aware that I was smarter than the other kids.
I was lousy in school. Real screwed-up. A moron. I was antisocial and didn’t bother with the other kids. A really bad student. I didn’t have any brains. I didn’t know what I was doing there. That’s why I became an actor.
I always wanted to be like Mark Messier and I loved Wayne Gretzky, the same as other kids. But it was also really special for me to see the Black players that were in the NHL.
I grew up watching ‘The Lone Ranger.’ I would get up every Saturday morning, earlier than all the other kids, to watch a black and white western with Clayton Moore that hadn’t filmed a new episode since 1957.
A big part of my upbringing was being with an instrument and kind of figuring myself out through music. So I feel a strong desire in any way that I can to help do that for other kids.
Truly, from a very early age, I started distancing myself from other kids, not out of willingness, but just out of the nature of my energy. I liked to do things solely, and I already had a taste of the quest for perfection, which is unusual in a little kid.
I was fortunate enough to make it to where I want to be. There could be other kids as talented or more talented than me in whatever they want to be but don’t have the resources to pursue their dream. Maybe they have to get a job instead to help their mom with the bills.
Because I was a bit smaller than the other kids, my dad knew that winning the ball in the air wasn’t going to be easy for me.
I always wonder what my life would be like if I had parents like the other kids who went to my high school.
I’ve been doing comedy since I was two. You know, kids who make other kids laugh. The sickness had set in! I could make my friends’ parents laugh; I had a sense of what was silly and funny.
Other kids were watching John Elway. I was watching Tom Landry.
I didn’t get trained by the school system like other kids, and when I did concentrate on learning, my mind was cluttered and locked by the programming of the system.
I remember my father, when I was a kid, retiring me on 50. He never used to let me bat past 50. He’d say I had to retire to give the other kids an opportunity.
I used to live with my grandmother. I used to wonder why the other kids in school went home with their mothers and fathers. I wanted to be the guy that got married. I wanted to be the guy with the children and the white picket fence. I never had that.
I always felt like I was mentally tougher than the other kids.
I always was a weird child. My mother told me the story that, in kindergarten, I would come home and tell her about this weird kid in my class who drew only with black crayons and didn’t speak to other kids. I talked about it so much that my mother brought it up with the teacher, who said, ‘What? That’s your son.’
The other kids wanted to play Destiny’s Child, but I wanted Anita O’Day.
I had long eyelashes and the other kids used to say I wore mascara.
I was the kid who was too geeky for the other kids.
Basketball gave me an avenue to live my dream, and I just want to help other kids live their dreams through me.
In the 70s and 80s, Dad was ‘the most hated politician in Britain’. When I started at Holland Park school, the papers turned up and there was a photograph of me published – skinny me in white shorts lining up with lots of other kids for PE. And I was 10.
When you’re young, you know, you want to do all the things other kids are doing. Play video games. Sit in the house and eat potato chips. Just play or whatever.
As an introverted kid who lived in the middle of nowhere, my stories made up the whole of my social life. That meant that while other kids cultivated hobbies like skateboarding or playing the piano, I sat at home scribbling in notebooks.
For most of our young lives, my family was baffled by elementary school bake sales, to which we were told to bring in goodies to sell. While other kids arrived bearing brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and apple pies, Chinese families didn’t bake.
Other kids went out and beat each other up or played baseball, and I built electronics.
A shy kid might look longingly at other kids playing in the schoolyard, afraid and unsure about how to approach them, but an introvert is perfectly content on her own.
When I was a kid I was teaching the other kids how to dance the ‘Dirty Dog.’
I ended up gettin’ a little Gibson amp and a bass, because of Gene Simmons of Kiss. Myself and three other kids would pretend to be Kiss – I liked Gene the best.
I would watch ‘Sesame Street’ and see neighborhoods and kids with other kids to play with, and I just didn’t have that. You know, we were on a lake. We just didn’t have that stuff.
I was very spiritual as a kid. I think I felt and thought about things a lot more deeply than most of the other kids my age. I wanted to help people.
I think day care is terrific. Kids get to be around other kids, and they’re playing, and they’re teaching each other. When I was in college, my summer job was being a preschool teacher. I loved it, and after that experience, I said I can’t wait to put my kid in day care because I could see how much they loved it.
Even from the age of about 6 years old, I was kind of made to feel different by other kids – you know, I was a quite pretty kid, and I got called ‘girl’ a lot, and ‘woman’ and all of that. And school is really not a place to be different.
When you see the fans all in together – elation and sadness sat next to each other, kids crying and the other half of the family up there, giving it all that – that’s just incredible.
It was a lot of fun being a child actress. It suited me. I don’t think it suits everybody, but I was in it because I had a passion, not because my parents wanted me to make money. If other kids want to do it, and they really like acting, go for it.
I remember going to Birmingham City matches as a kid and there were these other kids in Small Heath who had their own odd, partly Scouse accent.
At school, I could talk about what other kids were talking about. Maybe I wouldn’t seem so strange if I connected with them on the level they were used to.
I never had a chance to play with dolls like other kids. I started working when I was six years old.
I dreamed of being an NHLer the first day I played. Sometimes the other kids would say there are not many black players in the N.H.L. So I really followed as many black players as I could.
When I was little, I thought everyone in the world liked to read because it was so fun. But then I realised that was not exactly true. I want other kids to read and write more all over the world, because it helps them to understand things better.
No more bare bodies in film scenes for me. For my children’s sake, I must stop. The other kids at school keep throwing it up to my children, and they are not kind.
The records of adopted children are sealed in California. That seal is considered inviolable… The judge ruled that, because I was famous, he didn’t have the same rights as other kids.
As a child, I was a victim of bullying because of my cultural background. I didn’t look like all the other kids. I had a funny name.
I’ve always been a daydreamer. When the other kids were playing, I was listening to the roar at Yankee Stadium – I was always attracted to the roar of the crowd.
I grew up with a special-needs brother, and the separation from other kids is so extreme. We’ve got to break down those barriers.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a pro wrestler. Other kids wanted to be cops and astronauts, but I wanted to be Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake, and Jake ‘The Snake.’ I wanted to be those guys! I used to tape matches on my trampoline and body-slam my brother.
I was a typical K-Swiss guy with sweatsuits. I was a ball player, so the ballers, we wore our game shorts to class. We didn’t really have a fashion in high school like other kids.
The way other kids would watch ‘The Little Mermaid’ or ‘Sesame Street,’ I would watch ‘Fiddler on the Roof.’
When all the other kids were playing sports after school, I wanted to sing and dance and act.
I was really talkative as a child. The priest used to pray for me not to talk so much because I was distracting the other kids.
My mother sent me to speech classes, but the other kids still teased me. I was shy. I stooped. Instead of talking, I kept journals. That’s where my love of words comes from. I majored in journalism.
My life has definitely changed since ‘Modern Family.’ The show has made me more responsible, I really want to be a good role model for all kids so I have to think about what I say and do and how it looks to other kids!
I was nervous to even talk to other kids in my class. I would hide in my room when my parents had people over.
I had always sung in choirs. Even when it was something to be laughed at or made fun of, you know, in school. And I was always the kid who was picked at the Christmas concert to sing the solo, you know, while the other kids snickered in the front few rows.
Like many other kids, I liked watching anime.
Local companies don’t have to internalize their costs, and few actually do, but they tend to more often because the owners live there and they have to show their face in town, and their kids play with other kids.
In junior high P.E., I was way too shy to take a shower in front of the other kids. It was a horribly awkward time – body hair, odors… So I’d go from my sweaty shirt back into my regular clothes and have to continue the day.
If you’re a student that likes to, you know – that wants to go into the trades and have an incredible job, and you’re a student that loves the electricity or whatever it may be, in all honesty, a lot of times when you walk the halls people may – other kids may look down on you a little bit. It’s not fair. It’s not right.
You don’t want to be that parent – the one who dresses his kid in a cloth sack when all the other kids are in Armani cloth sacks – especially in a time like ours, when materialism is not only rampant and ascendant but is fast becoming the only game in town.
I didn’t have a good childhood because I never could get along with other kids. I was the child that sat in the corner eating lunch by herself.
At school, I was a lot more advanced compared to the other kids but I didn’t like authority and was kicked out for fighting.
My first five years on this planet were spent in Sudan and Zambia and after a short stint in London my family finally settled in Sydney. Right off the bat I knew I was different from the other kids.
The kids that are making the ghetto stuff I can’t even reach are the ones that are inspiring me to play music for the other kids in the city they don’t even know about. If I don’t get those kids making music, there won’t be an original kid DJing like me in five to 10 years.
I ended up being exposed to cinema that a lot of other kids wouldn’t have been exposed to.
I think there is a lot of loss in being a professional child actor. All of a sudden, you start to want to be an adult at the age of 8 or 9. I never did kid stuff, so to speak, so I was in many ways ostracized by the other kids. But I did get this other life, so it was a trade-off.
What I remember most vividly was the sense of always being a little behind the other kids in class – that sense of I wasn’t cut out for class or I wasn’t cut out to read.
I was angry because I see other kids with things that I wanted: they had good parents, they had clothes, they always had food and extra money, and I wasn’t one of those kids.
Growing up eating fruits and vegetables fresh from our farm added a lot to the way I taste and look at food today, and I wanted the same for my kids and other kids.
In the fifth grade I discovered something I could do better than the other kids. One day, the teacher set up a bunch of chairs, and she had everyone run to the chairs and back while she timed us. I had the fastest time in the whole school!
I was always good at math, but I was good at everything. It sounds obnoxious, but I was just smart. In school, it’s kind of obvious when you’re learning things faster than other kids.
I taught myself to read music at a very young age, so when I started to take lessons in school, the teachers used to give me other instruments to keep me busy, because I was more advanced than the other kids.
I was always different from all the other kids, and I was doing things that nobody else did or seemed to have any interest in.
I was a lot more cultured than the other kids in my high school. Because I traveled, I understood different cultures and had a more worldly view. Most of the people I went to high school with had never been outside of California.
When I was growing up in Mississippi – it was good Southern food… but I also grew up with a Greek family; when other kids were eating fried okra, we were eating steamed artichokes. So I think it played a big part in my healthy cooking.
I would play with numbers in a way that other kids would play with their friends.
What I really want to do is, first of all, get my music out to the world. And then I would really just like to reach other kids all over the world and tell them to believe in themselves and prove to people that you can do anything you want.
I think the world sort of looks to the kids who have potential. These are the kids who are going to do something with their lives, who are going to do something for the world. I don’t think it’s malicious, but the other kids get lost from that point on.
