Readers Respond: The Silly Things Kids Believe

Chocolate milk, anyone?

When I first compiled a list of the silliest things that kids believe, I had no less than a bajillion (yes, that is a technical term) things to choose from. I picked my favorite 10, and, as I figured, Babble’s readers came through and let me know what other amazing ones I had left off.

So, in an effort to further entertain us all, I went ahead and pulled together a few more that were left by readers on Facebook and in the original comments.

You can check them out below.
