    It is totally opposed. We can agree that as children get older, past say 12, their intelligence and their physical and emotional maturity increase to a level that they can function in an adult world. They still have much to learn as is demonstrated by the accident rates of young drivers ( https://www.dmv.ca.gov/teenweb/more_btn6/traffic/traffic.htm ) or the prevalence of young people involved in fights or crime in general ( https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/ojjdp/228479.pdf ). The research shows that mental maturity is a lifetime pursuit but that physical maturity of the brain occurs around age 25. :asian:

    Honestly, I think you should read the book. All of these points can be looked at with a different and you'll be left with the conclusion that young people have had their mental maturation retarded by western society. In a nut shell, brain studies show what is happening to brains in response to our culture and the risk taking behavior is also an effect of retarded maturity.

    The cure is responsibility and freedom. In order to allow young people to grow naturally, we need to treat them more like adults.

    "Shocking isn't it? Imagine children having the rights and responsibilities of adulthood as soon as they are capable. Imagine what that kind of trust would do to a child's self esteem."

    Rights and responsibilities of adults as soon as they are capable|? Treated like us? Whoo hoo. I always tried not to swear in front of kids til now. Thanks bud. I wont censor myself anymore.
