What makes you a grown-up would be your personality? O.o

Not what you've done or what-so-ever. (That is, according to me ;3)

A 13 yr old who engages in sex and smoking reflects her immaturity even more so.

Why are young people so eager to grow up anyways? You have a lot of time to be old in life and so little time to be young.

i think being grown-up is being able to make good decisions for yourself. i think i made the first grown-up decision of my life, by transferring to another university without any help from my parents.

i can't believe she's already had sex... 13 y/o. wow. when i was 13, i dont think i even knew what sex really was. haha.

ok so Smoking and having sex = grown up... wow i was a grown up at 14!


Too bad at 14 i had no idea about mental maturity and responsiblity.

Being an adult means taking responsibility for your actions, both good and bad.

It also means that you've got wisdom and don't do the teenager stupid things anymore.

I'm of my own mind and am not easily influenced by outside sources.

I also have a Roth IRA and a Pension... that makes me feel pretty adult...

oh yeah, and having my daughter makes me a bit adult... and going to work everyday makes me adult..


planning for my future and my daughter's future... makes me an adult.

Not going to jail, and not doing drugs, and knowing WHY i don't do those.. that makes me an adult...

Learning that not everything goes your way.. .and no amount of crying is going to make it go your way...

Fighting with your hands is for exercise with padding and protection on in a Gym...
fighting with words, is an art form.

i dunno, i'm rambling now.. bleh..

Maybe it'll help you with your friend.

a 13 year old cant say they are grown ups even if they did all that stuff, people can ACT older, but that doesnt mean they are. acting like a grown up doesnt mean you are one because of maturity.

I personally think maturity, composure, and poise makes you a grown up. I'm 16 but I look like I'm 21. I'll admit it, I'm pretty mature for my age but there are times when I'm immature.

i believe the moment i became a grown-up . was when i realized the world doesnt revolve around me .
i learned empathy/sympathy .
i gained maturity and a conscience .
learning right from wrong seems to be a difficult thing for some kids now a days .

If I were you, I'd tell the 13 year old to kiss my rats ass thank god I'm not a whore who's distorying they're lungs.

The dictionary defines being an adult as being "fully developed and mature"


I agree with what sh1ranu said.
The moment you stop being:

-self centered
-become responsible
-become more aware of the world and others around you
-pay your own bills
-become a productive member in society
etc

You've become an adult until then you're a kid/teen.

What makes you legally grown up: your 18th birthday

What makes you emotionally grown up: dignity, reasoning, responsibility, and maturity.
