DO YOU THINK SOME PEOPLE UNDER 18 SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE ADULTS?
I know how you guys feel; I felt I was in the same predicament all throughout my teens. When you're smarter/more mature than your parents and most people around you, life can suck pretty bad. Just suck it up. You'll be 18 soon. Then you can demand respect and they'll have no choice but to give it.
The human brain does not finish developing until about age 18. The prefrontal cortex is not even fully fused at age 15. Sure you can function and handle many aspects of life. But when you get out into the real world you have to deal with people who want nothing more than to exploit you.
What really annoys me is that some people OVER 18 still sct like little kids. Yet THEY are automatically considered adults. That really pisses me off
I meant act not sct. It's early in the morning, give me a break
I hate it when people automatically get something. You should never just get to be an adult when you're 18. If you act like an adult, why can't you be treated like one.
I'm, not saying I should be an adult, just treated like one.
dude come on i agree with guest_e4394
I'm with ReD QuEEn. You rgae is just how long you've been alive, it's not like that displays your IQ. Besides making the drinking age 35 will cause a MAD protest from people in their twenties.
'the fact that you're having a typing tantrum proves you are still a big kid. So go get your head down and wait your turn. jus cos ya got feathers on ya lil' chicken doesn't meanyer a man, sonny' Guest_e4394
I'm not asking to be an adult, just be given the respect I deserve. Something I've been cheated out of for all too long. Besides, I can handle 'adult' conversation also.
Okay, just makin sure you know that some of us deserve better than we get...
Hey, 2 years ago I was still 17. It does suck, just wait. Eventually you'll get your chance.
Hey dude you wanna be an Adult ? Then get a forty hour a week job and watch the Gov't take 4o % of your paycheck . Once you do this you are a man no matter your age.Enjoy adulthood cause its overated.
in sum cases yer but there are sum v. imature people who r over 18
I know an 11 year old girl who's far and away more mature than many 18 year olds I know! I've referred her as a woman since I first met her, when she'd only just turned 10. The point being, it depends upon the individual in question.
Yes, i am 15 and i am like an adult.
