People talking about "when I grow up" but when do you grow up? In about yr 10 I had to write an essay about when I grew up and stopped being a child - but a year on I still see myself as a child - I'm still a girl, I'm not a woman... Is 18 grown up? I don't think so

I went to see Hans Blix the other day and I looked around at all the clever and gorwn-up people and suddenly thought "they are probably looking at the crowd thinking similar things. and I'm in the crowd! I'm a grown up!"

Well right now I feel I could go to a sixth form college and study A-levels and become a 16-17 year old.

But I couldn't go to university at this age.

I'm 16 and still consider myself as a child. I think going to uni and moving out of home will make me feel more like an adult as i will have more independence and will have to support myself without relying on my parents

That is such an Asian belief...

If my parents hammered anything into me it's that I'll grow up when it suits them most. Sod them, I'm moving out when I graduate!

exactly! Do people actually grow up? Because my bro's 25 and he still acts like a little kid and mucks around - my mum and dad are definately grown up though, but my best mate's parents still act like kids but are also grown ups...

A lot of 16 years olds still act like children especialy if you're from a well protected envrionment, on the other hand you have 13 year olds into all sorts they shouldn't be.

I don't know when I stopped being a child, probably 17/18.

In many ways I am still like a choldren now. I still have a certain amount of innocence.

I don't exactly act like a child - apparently I'm very mature (well that's what it says on all my school reports)... I'm not really very protected though, I've been through and witnessed loads of bad stuff... Maybe it just depends on who you are though, like some kids are grown up but other people will always have childish tendancies (hehehe)...

I'm 26 and it always amuses me when people call me 'sir' or 'that man'. A woman in a shop the other day referred to me as 'that man' and I thought "what, me?!". I'm still a 'lad'.

Indeed, I get that. Once a child bumped into me and the mother said "say sorry to the lady".

My up bringing was rather strange, it was both very protected but also very exposed at the same time.

Something like that happened to me in my local library. I heard a mum say 'just let this man return his book', and I thought - what man?

I still say I like "boys" and I suppose that is going to start sounding inappropriate soon. I don't get called a "woman" yet though, just a lady. I was in France and someone called me "Madame" though - frightening.
