    I recently turned 17 like (1 month) ago and so much expected from me ......
    My family continously tell me to be more responsible as I just hit 17 I still feel like a kid and I am always labeled as immature .How do i get rid of this immaturity?
    Is there a significant difference betweem a 16 yr and 17 yr old in terms of maturity .
    sorry I am aware that this question is kind of stupid but I kind of want to improve my personality and be more responsible

    Hey, everyone is different just ignore your parents and be yourself (aslong as you aren't hurting everybody). If you want to become more "mature" tho, just focus on bettering yourself by occupying your time with things you enjoy, and being more productive.

    No the difference should be in your personality, if you are child like then so be it but maturity comes with change and understanding

    you should be ok though, just do less of the "childish" stuff you do

    Yes, 'just ignore your parents.' Why not? They shouldn't have any expectations of you, should they? I expect they have fed , clothed and housed you for the last 17 years.

    small small changes lead up to a big change.
    try saying to yourself i'll stop doing that silly habit for once, then once you've stopped doing that move on to the next silly thing then so on and so on, eventually you'll have gotten rid of a lot of your "childish" things which are seen as unfavourable
