Scientests in enjgland has decided that childhood shuold be extended to twenty-five, because the brain is stfill developing until then.  This was fox today.  


Personally, I feel as long as your still learning your brain is still developing.

I am a Mormon.  If I don't use Mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

Yea that's the party's attitude I think -- at least I don't see anyone being invited to join the party until they are around that age.  About thirty seems to be the most common.

As if folks aren't too immature as it is. Enough with these studies, UK. These youth-extension schemes, for grown men and grown women, are getting out of hand. It's just a matter of time before forty-year-old men are reclassified as drunken frat boys.

No, they will remain forty year old drunks.

As for the British study, you can say that a frog is a tadpole until you're blue in the face, but it won't make it so. We don't need a generation of infantilized twenty-year-old "children". It's laughable and ludicrous to say that a twenty-five-year-old individual is a literal child. Hence my comment about "adolescents" in their forties.

I really would restrict the franchise, had I the power, to some age like twenty-five.  Maybe they are physically adults earlier, but they still lack judgment and experience.  Of course that is not the only way I think the franchise needs restricting.  The democratic ideal is part of the problem here.

I couldn't agree less. Keep the age of majority at eighteen for all things, sixteen for some things. I'm excluding leadership positions while limiting it to things like alcohol consumption and the vote. We all learn from experience, so the rush to define adults by brain maturity (in the scientific sense) would cripple our society and produce a generation of infantilized people.

I'm only talking about the franchise.  Children become adults in a process, not at an age, so giving them adult rights and responsibilities should happen in stages.  The right to make contracts and to marry should be maybe 18, the right to drive maybe a little older, but the franchise should come last.

Most of us had a driver's license at sixteen when we were in high school, and we lived to tell the tale. I can understand some arguments that claim that it's too young to independently drive at that age, but your recommendation on the age restriction goes a bit too far, in my opinion. I'm not sure what you mean by "franchise", either. Since you're probably not referring to fast food restaurants, I take it that you mean state-sanctioned official adulthood, legally recognized by all locations and tiers of government.

In many places of the world where living is a lot harder, they consider the kids grown at 15 or 16. I personnally feel that you're an adult when you could have your own babies and successfully take care of them (given you have money?).

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I've heard that most people in Europe don't get a drivers license till they are over 20.

I agree. If you're moderately successful while independent, you're an adult.

If you can support yourself, or support yourself and a child, you're a big boy.
