I've always wondered about this. Who actually set that when a person becomes 18 (in other countries 21), they're an adult? Is it proven by science (as in study of the mind development)?
I mean I know many adults who act really immature (Eg, drink driving, etc.), while some children are mature, responsible, and can take care of themselves.
So A few questions..
1) Why do you think 18(or 21) is the 'adult' age?
2) What's the evidence? If you have any.
3) What do you think should be adjusted? If you have any once again.
Waiting to hear your views...
