Have you ever witnessed a younger person (like a teenager or early 20s) being much more mature than someone older?

I've seen it on here a LOT and in "real life" a few times, too. I've seen older people throw a fit like a toddler if a younger person makes a statement that they don't agree with, even if the younger person is stating a fact (like Obama is the current president, I swear).

  • I see it at work all the time! We have an older woman in her 70's thats always causing drama, gossip etc. and the 20 somethings are so much more mature and don't get involved.. I applaud them!

  • All the time. Sometimes I feel I say the wrong things at time as I've gotten older. Honestly, it just depends on situation whether a 70 or 20 yr old has the right approach.

  • older teens and the young adults tend to be more mature because they can and choose to be. Life has yet to slap them around a little bit like the older women, when some women get older they tend get resentful/defiant/angry and act less lady like because they feel they should know it all because of their hard knocks and resent the mature young adults who are no longer petty/whinny young teens

  • My brother has always been mature WAY beyond his years. I've always said he's an old soul. He's an amazing guy. I love being around him. He doesn't sound like most guys his age, and he never has. But I think we've all come across someone 30 going on 12, and someone 16 going on 40. DH is 35 going on 90, I swear! Then again, other times, he's 35 going on 14.

    Obviously a young person could never have a hard life, though, right?

    cielo1 That pretty much sums me up (but I'm 21 now). I was abused as a child, I had to grow up when I was 8 so that I could raise my sister, I've been raped, I nearly ended up divorced, etc. Life isn't fair, and age has absolutely nothing to do with that. People can have a difficult life and let it make them into a bitter jerk, or they can take the punches and try to better themselves.
