When girls go through their adolescent and teenage years, they are on their way to becoming an adult. Society’s definition of an adult is an individual who is at least 18 years or older. With the responsibility of such a promotion to adulthood, there comes certain expectations, especially since an adult is accountable for his or her own actions.
Adults are expected to accept and own up to their own mistakes. This concept is important for a new adult who is barely 18 years old. Children start trying to gain their own identity and independence at a young age, usually between 13 and 16 years old. They are struggling to identify who they are and what they want, and they come up with solutions that will help them to succeed even before they reach adulthood.
For this reason, many girls choose to leave home and attend college in another state once they graduate high school, around the age of 18. The move will help them to become more accountable for their own lives and to make their own decisions. Many children turn out to be great at being an adult. Most of them leave home, go to college, start a career, get married, and have children of their own.
When children reach adulthood, their way of thinking changes, and so do the relationship they have with their family and friends. Even their conversations change, because they are speaking on a more mature level. Becoming an adult seems scary, but for many teens it is a welcomed challenge. When teens look at the big picture and the benefits of growing up, they feel more than ready to be their own boss.
The benefits of reaching adulthood may include: making grown up decisions, choosing a lifestyle that is different from their parents’, developing their own moral code, moving to another state or country to start over, and being accountable for all the decisions they make regarding their future. These are not small steps for a new adult to make.
The life of an adult is an interesting one. There are decisions to make, problems to fix, and situations to handle. A responsible adult is accountable for every right or wrong decision, and not only owns up to all mistakes, but learns from them as well. Becoming an adult is like evolving. A bud is not a flower until it begins to sprout leaves. This is how entering adulthood works; teens who reach adulthood are expected to behave like adults, and to own up to their faults. Bills, tough decisions, unpopular choices, and working 9 to 5 are all a part of the deal — Welcome to adulthood.
