No Excuses On 18:
When children turn 18, and they make bad choices, people often say, “Well, they were 18, an adult – it was their choice.” The teenage brain is not developed until at least age 21, so those three years between 18 and 21 are critical for learning how to become an adult. This idea seems so elementary, but we are loosing our young adult children in preventable accidents and crimes in unmeasured numbers: vehicular manslaughter, murder, rape, etc.
