Sometimes it takes something like a hashtag to remind us of days gone by, when we were all totally ignorant about the world and would believe anything our parents told us.
#AsAChildIUsedToThink has been taking Twitter by storm as tweeters share the embarrassing tales of things they actually believed when they were little.
Some were adorably ignorant:
