thought this was a good question to put up for a debate. what ages do you think that a child stops being a child, and becomes a teenager, and what age do you think a teenager stops being a teenager, and becomes an adult? are you with the actual legal ages, or do you think diffrently? well, my personal view.. as far as childhood goes, i don't think we ever really stop being a child... i think we all have a child in us no matter how old we are as for teen/ adult, well.. i always believed you become an official teen when you enter highschool, and then an adult at 18- when you can actually rely on yourself and not really need your parents. so what are your thoughts?
