 I've made sure to educate my girls even at their ages now so they'll be better prepared to avoid the same credit hole I stepped into.

I was in my early 20's! And NO! I was not! I don't think they should advertise for anyone under 21 actually!

Quoting bamababe1975:

 I was in college, 19 or 20, and definitely wasn't ready for it. My parents never talked about credit cards so I had no clue what I was getting into.

Me either! I ended up with 2! I was so confused and paid on one and not the other. Got into trouble! We do not use them anymore.

I was in my 20s and definitely wasn't prepared for the responsibility.

 I was 18. My parents got it for me under their name - just to help me out a bit. =)
