We all have our ‘stuff’ – the things that we struggle with.
Ultimately, they are the things that will make us braver, wiser, stronger, more compassionate and better humans. The difference with anxiety is that the struggle is more visible.
In many cultures, a child is considered an adult after undergoing a rite of passage, which may or may not correspond to the time of puberty.
Children generally have fewer rights than adults and are classed as unable to make serious decisions, and legally must always be under the care of a responsible adult or child custody, whether their parents divorce or not.
In Singapore, for example, a child is legally defined as someone under the age of 14 under the "Children and Young Persons Act" whereas the age of majority is 21.In Roman times, children were regarded as not culpable for crimes, a position later adopted by the Church.In the 19th century, children younger than seven years old were believed incapable of crime.From the late 17th century onwards, children were shown playing with toys and later literature for children also began to develop at this time.According to Professor Peter Jones of Cambridge university development of the brain continues long past legal definitions of adulthood so "to have a definition of when you move from childhood to adulthood looks increasingly absurd.
