    But as a kid

    Zeb is talking to his father Terry:

    Zeb: All the sh*t that happened, I know it wasn't your fault. It was just sh*t that happens, right? But as a kid, the point of view you take is the one that's given to you...
    Terry: Your mum?
    Zeb: Yeah, my mum. And I just want to tell you that I'd like to... now that I'm here and you're here and too many f**king years have gone by to...F**k, it's so corny, to...

    Who is as kid?

    Terry is a not a kid. Terry is father to Zeb. To whom exactly is Zeb referring?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Here, "as a kid" means "When a person is a child". It refers to a general truth - when people are children, the point of view they take is the one that's given to them.

    Note my corrections above. Some of our users are youngsters so we don't write out swear words in full. Please, if you must post them at all, get into the habit of disguising them a bit by using asterisks. I have edited your original post already to do so.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You're right, GS.

    Kingston, you lose none of your anonymity by telling us the truth about yourself.

    Re: But as a kid

    Your IP address is Chicago, USA.

    Is there a reason why you are falsifying your location?
