Several posters replied that 25 should be the legal age for adulthood. Does this mean that you, as a parent, want to be responsible for your children until that age with all that entails?

It's no different than being responsible for a 17 year old now. It sounds extreme because it's not the norm. If it was the norm, nobody would think twice. We live 20-30 years longer on average than when these ages were originally decided. People are more likely to work until they're 80 than retire now.

I don't believe that because we're living older than before that we are maturing so much later
Doesn't really matter what you believe. Science is about facts.
