As a result, they dress wildly and do impulsive things and end up being treated with less respect.
In addition, older people feel superior and better than the younger generation since they have more life experiences.
This raises the question ‘what should be the right age of responsibility? Adulthood is the period that comes after the adolescence stage.
The age where one is considered as an adult varies considerably.
For this reason, the majority of 18-year-olds behave more like adolescents than adults.
Most 18-year-olds live in their parents’ home or depend on their parents or guardians for school fees, food, and rent.They are prone to making bad choices in life since their frontal cortex is not entirely developed.They also have not yet earned the respect of the society.A “mature” person has high attitudes, is realistic and treats others with respect.Sociologists argue that an 18-year-old can be regarded as an adult. In the UK, at age 18, individuals are considered to be in the age of “majority.” They are allowed to be ‘legal’ and can assume adult responsibilities.A lot of people believe that being deliberate, genuine and thoughtful is being an adult.However, there are numerous deviations from this benchmark – accounting for the varying age of maturity.Before, we used to go to New York to see my brother, his girlfriend and their three screaming kids face to face.Should there be a defining transition age from childhood to adulthood?However, in most cases, 18-year-olds are not mature enough to be responsible or deal appropriately with the society. Research shows that the prefrontal cortex is halfway developed for 18-year-olds.The frontal lobe is responsible for cognitive skills such as problem-solving, emotional expression, decision making, etc.
