  • Absolutely. I have a 16 year old brother who is much more mature and well behaved than any fully grown man I've ever met.

  • No, I would have to disagree. I don't dispute that there are exceptions, but for the most part your maturity level is based on what you've experienced and how you handle it. Young people just haven't had enough time to rack up life experiences that promote maturity.

  • I believe it all depends on the person. I was very mature for being a 16 yrs when I had moved out into my own place and work full time and go to High School full time also. Know that i am 33 i look back and I sometimes feel that i missed out on some things but hey I had a good older teen life.

  • I believe that age has very little to do with maturity. Many people have been "forced" to grow up and mature at very young ages and then there are just as many people in their 50's still as immature as a 5 year old. I believe that maturity has more to do with life experiences and what you have seen/gone through.

  • oh? You've met my MIL have you?? lol I do agree that the two are not mutually exclusive. That is why we have the phrase....I may grow old...but I refuse to grow up!

    I also don't agree with the Anon at 2:51, I have met some younger people that have a very old soul. Certain things can be passed on from one life to the next. This is of course my own opinion, so bashing won't do anyone any good.
