When did you suddenly realize that you were no longer a kid. You had to become an adult.
When did it come to your mind that you couldn't do the same things you could as a child. Not to say what right or wrong but by society terms as things an adult shouldn't do.

I hope that made sense to you guys.

I'd have to say that becoming a dad had the biggest impact on me. You can not be a responsible parent if you are acting like a kid yourself! That being said, I will play with my kids, and have loads of fun with them, but when it is time to be serious that all changes. I still nurture my inner child. I can't imagine what life would be like without it, which is why I can sit and watch anime at 44 years of age and totally enjoy it with all my heart!

When I go to a park and everyone stares at me like I am some sort of paedophile, how many times must I apologise for forgetting my pants just that one time...

When I realized my outer appearance wouldn't quite match my actions...not that I look old or anything but if you see a teen poking at weird items you'll be isolated...
I guess definitely when you get those stares when you walk into a child area and everyone's just half your size and you're trying to blend in eating pocky...while not seeming 'out of place'...
OTL But I'm still a kid inside...I just have to keep the strict responsibility up when I'm around people who can't quite understand or accept the kid me OuO
Guess one thing that definitely hits you into being a grown up is when you first realize at your age... "You can get a job."

I'm 17, currently going through that transition from stupid teen to stupid young adult. The moment hit me when all my friends started applying to colleges and getting jobs last summer. I suddenly realized, I have to DO these things if I don't want to starve or be a burden on my parents. Now its either get a good job/education or up my street guitar playing hustle...

I'm still a kid...

I mean, I still love jumping castles, eating ice cream, I get excited at the sight of balloons (in a non-sexual way), I love hide and seek, I love receiving and opening presents, I hate the taste of alcohol, love playing board games.


I can behave like an adult, but that is me in my most unnatural state; that is why I get so tired from work, having to pretend to be serious and mature all the time really tires me out. Wish I could just be myself in the workplace--maybe I should join the Wiggles.

When shit started to get real in my life.

For example, becoming homeless.

Had to grow up pretty fast to cope with that crap.

I'm still a kid on the inside, but I have a lot of responsibilities so can't afford to goof around much

I have kid moments, then again I'm the youngest person here where I work (supervisor is in his late 20's, other supervisor in his late 30's, boss is in his mid 60's). But to answer the OP's questions:

When did you suddenly realize that you were no longer a kid. You had to become an adul
t.
realized I became an adult when I started budgeting my paychecks and paying my bills, and no longer get money from my parents period.

When did it come to your mind that you couldn't do the same things you could as a child. Not to say what right or wrong but by society terms as things an adult shouldn't do.

Realizing how rather foolish it is to not want to hide your body piercings or tattoos during an interview or while you are working. A lot of employers would rather have people that either have no tats/piercings or they can hid them while they are working. Also when I have my company shirt on I don't act like an idiot and have my supervisors and boss hear about what I did later >.<

When I was 14 or so, and had to take up more responsibility to take care of my mom. She was starting to have health problems, and I would have to drive the car for her on long trips. Yes, I learned to drive, and would do the highway driving for her at 14. That was on a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia with a 4 speed manual transmission. Ever since I have been able to drive very long distances with very little interruption, like up to 1000 miles a day. I also learned to cook and clean, take care of getting the car serviced, that sort of stuff. By the time I was 17 I was living in my own apartment, my own car, and had 2 jobs. I was a factory certified auto mechanic for American Motors, with a lot of Jeep and 4 wheel drive factory training. That and I was a bouncer at a topless bar.
