I see questions on here about at what point can a child to this or that... And responses referring to teens as children... To me, a teen is NOT a child, they are capable of taking care of themselves physically, thinking for themselves and in some cases even able to care for their family or parents (as my DH had to do) both physically and financially. They aren't CHILDREN, they are young adults. In other parts of the world adult and child are defined much differently... So at what age is someone no longer a CHILD? When do you see someone as beyond that?Answer Question

I know people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s who are children.
I think the term "child" fluctuates depending on the usage. YES a teenager is a child and YES a teenager is a young adult.... but what he/she can or can not do will vary depending on the individual. I think you are taking the term way too literal.
I have a two teenagers of my own (and was one at one time)... there are days I am VERY impressed with them.. and other days they are worse than my 9 yr old.
