Just as the title says, what age do you consider yourself an adult? I myself think that 20 is the adult age. So what about you guys?

18 or 19 are the start of adulthood basically. At that time, you're out of high school (For some) and off to college.
Am I wrong?

I don't see the point of age, actually. I've met young children more mature and precarious then 25 year olds. I'd actually say old enough to make rational decisions while taking in consideration the time and place, as well as the effect of your actions on everything and everyone else.

At 18, since that's when most people consider you an adult and let you make your own decisions.

I agree, don't see adulthood starting at an age.

I believe you're adult when you are supporting your self financially.

Adulthood has nothing to do with age. Lots of boys in men's bodies running around today.

18.

But some kids aged 13 like to consider themselves adult and it is sickening! Enjoy being a kid while you still can!

A little bit of what cschoppe said. I don't think theirs an age for adults because you can be 22 with the most childish attitude ever. IMO I think being an adult is being mature in a way. You know when enough is enough and whats right from wrong.

Being legally an adult, and being mature enough to make your own decisions, are usualy completely different ages. I have mt 12-13 year olds who were more mture, and cmuch more clear headed than many 30 year olds.

I for one am 18, but I still do not trust my own judgemet.

It's different for everybody, Someone older could be more childish, and someone younger could be more mature, it depends on that person

I say for myself it would be after you are out on your own without much help from parents or guardians so whatever age your out by yourself doing your own thing
