Legally, people may be considered an “adult” on their eighteenth birthday, however, it takes more than that to actually be one. At any age, people can act like children, and at any age, people can act like adults.

Maturity and responsibility are things we learn over time, not just magically gain when we reach a certain age. Some may learn these skills faster than others and some may never learn them at all. It is how we interact with others, the world around us and most importantly, ourselves, that truly shows what it means to be an adult.
