Americans don't become adults until 40.
Late Night Thoughts
That means I have one more year of childhood left. ;-)
I think adulthood is defined more by events than by numbers. I know people who had to become adults at very young ages and others who are over 40 and I still wouldn't call them adults.
I'm 26, and I still feel like I'm 18...I think we live in a culture that celebrates youth more than maturity. We don't want to grow old, because that means winding up in a "home" waiting for an all-too-rare visit from...anyone! The wisdom of age is being replaced by the charism of youth.In some ways this is perhaps good; people can indulge in a "young" feeling long past their youth and not feel foolish. But even the most elderly should have the freedom to feel that way anyway, I think!
