    Anyway, I found it to be a tremendous relief in my mid-twenties when I learned that I was not that special, and I could relax.
    Me too. The easing off of the pressure to be the next president, the kindling of the light inside to choose a path that will make me happy, and the discovery that living off box noodles and hot pockets is hard, but also doable and satisfying.

    I think there's plenty to discuss about it, so I decided to post. There are positive and negative points about it. Will it be really favorable concerning the personal development of young adults, or will it cause some infantilization after all (for example, being dependent at an age which you should have some degree of independence), as I already saw a sociologist in my country say? Excluding things such as personal life experiences, which impact this new convention might have in the future in general?
    This is interesting given that the talking point of the UK conservative party conference today was their intention to remove all benefits from anyone younger than 25yrs of age.

    Could be a result of this research and that awarding benefits to people younger than 25 is socialising them or habituating them to a life as claimants?

    Its also the hate mail, a news paper who thinks its alright to publish lies about the father of the leader of the UK parliamentry opposition, so you know...

    Really?

    I live in hope that people will want to embrace adulthood and be responsible earlier and earlier in life.

    why is it for? Why take life so serious? It's not like you're going to survive it anyway...

    I dont see joy and frivolity as synomynous with childishness or irresponsibility.

    Reaching adulthood is great because you can do the things which you cant reasonably do in adolescence or childhood.

    I can agree on this one...But unfortunately I know alot of kids my age, that are trying hard to be mature and ressponsible and most of the time it's funny picture of young people, that think they know everything in the world, experienced everything in the world and they feel extremly important. Yeah maybe they are responsible hardworkers, but all that arrogance and snobbis style of life that goes with it in such a young age...blewh I'd rather be child until I die.

    this article offends me. I'm 22 and consider myself an adult. when people forget that (I'm an ENFP, a 7w6 and already look 17-18-ish, so on one hand I can't really blame'em ), I make sure to remind them.

    18-25 year olds are fully capable of making adult decisions. yes, they're still young and still learning, but I don't see why we can't just call them young adults.

    also, that would mean that women go through the vast majority of their sexual prime before they are even considered "adults", which is ridiculous imo.

    what's next, they raise the age of consent to 25? fuck that! If fucking people under age 25 makes me a fellon, you can send me to jail right now, cuz I'm a carnivore and I demand fresh meat!

    oh, man there is so much wrong with pretty much everything you said. Don't you still live with your parents though?

    Seems like a matter of semantics, really. I figure "Young adulthood" (legal independence at 18 up to mid 20s when the brain's fully developed) is that phase between adolescence & adulthood. Naturally, it implies there's still a bit of growth to do, so there's bound to be a bit of overlap in the behavioral/psychological characteristics of adolescence.. but that's just my take on it. Milestones can be useful in terms of feeling a sense of personal empowerment and achievement, but their timing ought to be calibrated to the individual's development, perceptionwise.
