At what age, will you be grown up? Do you need to reach a age to be grown up? If yes, why? I have grandchildren, who are pre-teen, and are very grown up now. And I know, many who are old, and still not grown up. Age is just a number. You can start showing your family, that you are grown up, by doing your share, work and caring, and most off, doing things without being asked to do them. Make supper for all some day, without being asked. This is my thinking, and some may say, I am wrong.
I just want to say that I'm responsible when it's necessary and I'm helping at home all the time. I don't want to lose the joy that children have. Half of me is still a child and a half is behaving responsibly. About this supper for family - I've got 18 years old I'm doing it all the time. It's nothing new for me.
Than you are a grown up adult, not a child any more. Live life as a adult, being a child is gone. This is a new, world for you. Love, work, school, and helping family, is a adult thing to do. I am glad you answered my post, you are a great lady, and I am proud to know you.
Thanks but I don't think that this duties like making supper, helping at home aren't adult things to do. In Poland you need to do this things because you can't count only for parents. Also you can't do nothing all days.
Here in the USA, just the special, good, children, do these things, without being told to. Here, many of the children spend many hours, on the viedo games, or just T.V., but some of the good ones play sports, and many even get jobs out of the home. By the ways of us, here in the USA, you would be one of the good ones, and I think you are. If, again, if you ever want to talk off line, send me a message, cause, I like the way you think.
It's something new to me about children in the USA. In Poland for children it's nothing new that they should clean house, wash up or swept the floor. Parents learn children because they need to deal in the future life. Thanks I will send you a message when I had such a need.
