Do you think having a sheltered upbringing would result in someone taking longer to mentally grow?
This includes not having travelled, not eating out, mum pretty much doing everything for them, and not allowed to be in relationships. Would someone with this kind of upbringing be likely to be more immature when they enter university?

Not necessarily.

Depends where they are on the naivety spectrum, and how much they've been / expect to be mothered.

Isn’t someone who is sheltered that much going to rebel against their parents?

I’d actually say some may potentially actually mature even fast 😅

But rebelling isn't the same as maturity, i.e the ability to look after oneself and act like an adult

I think someone can be mature in their outlook on life/attitude but naive in the ways of the world. Someone that was very sheltered may be quite naive but not necessarily immature...

Not sure about maturity but they'd definitely be less independent
