And here is an excellent little picture that fits the discussion.
well I find it impressive the fact a 22 year old "kid" is having this discussion. I think this alone adds 20 years to your maturity quotient.
That and the fact I was thinking of the being a "crab ass" and having a similar conversation with my son, this has caused me to reconsider. thnx.
my 15 year old son says it is when you become responsible for your decisions.
Good and bad decisions.
The 21 year old just told me to grow up. lol
Methinks your son is correct.
I'm 23, and have been bouncing between homes for a couple of years now, due to not having enough income to afford my own place. It was immaturity (not taking responsibility for my actions) that got me into the situation I am currently in, and by accepting responsibility for my choices I am slowly crawling out of that hole.
The concept of maturity should not be one of cultural ideals, but one of responsibility. Give your son a high five for awesomeness!
