When do you become an Adult?
Apparently people Don’t Reach Adulthood Until Their 30s!
I met a woman at a pub this week who was very concerned about her 20 something year old, who was still living at home. If you’re a parent with a 20 something-year-old living in your basement, ease up, because a new study shows he or she hasn’t quite reached adulthood yet. Researchers at Cambridge University have determined the human brain doesn’t reach full maturity until it’s at least 30 years old. While they concede some people mature faster than others, many don’t become full-fledged adults until their early 30’s. That’s not to say your 29-year-old is still a child. The study suggests people go through an undefined stage between childhood and adulthood.
I realized I was an adult when I got excited about purchasing a crock pot. I thought only people who have their $#!t together have a crock pot.
When did you realize that you were actually an adult?
