I found a stat in a book I’ve now lost track of that stated that George Washington was bossing people around by the age of 15 for good purposes, and that most of the people on the Mayflower were in the early 20s and girls were old maids by the age of 25 and people still live with parents into age 30 now, but usually guys.
Maybe I saw that on the internet somewhere. I’ll have to look later. For now, two links – one to the Vancouver Sun: “Young adults more likely to get angry” and a history of adolescence as a means of describing the years between 12 and 20 anyway.
Are we letting kids be kids for too long?
