I was thinking about the myth or reality, depends on your view that..... Girls mature faster than boys, both mentally and physically. There may be some fact that some girls do mature earlier than boys, but I've seen the constant trend in girls being promoted in maturity over boys. At age 18, I would think boys and girls were equal as far as maturity goes. I'm making this point, becaue I think that's a source of some of our youth's problems. The girls being constantly told they were more mature, so they try to act accordingly. But I'd rather focus on the boys, since I am a man. The boys being told they were less mature than the girls and that its gonna take time for them to mature. I say hogwash! In my opinion, this gives the boys an excuse for continuing immature behavior at an age where they should be thoughful, intelligent, and mature in their thoughts and actions. What are some opinions on this?
