4. Respect For Their Parents
Children who graduate into their teenage years, think that they’re all grown up now, can become rebellious and stop listening to their parents. Kids will then begin doing the opposite to what they’re told. Children forget the loving nature of their parents, and the reason why they exist. As they grow older, experience a few life experiences, they begin to appreciate their parents, the unconditional love they provide, and realize that they themselves, are ready to become full fledged adults, capable of having children of their own.
3. Start Avoiding “Bad” Company
Most teens want to be bad and they don’t care. The friends they choose to hang out with, influences their choices, as it’s friends who dictates the direction of their lives. The sign of becoming an adult is realizing how hanging around with bad company, could ruin their life. At times, even when knowing the consequences, some will fall victim to the charms of evil company, which can lead to criminal activity. Most maturing adults however have the sense to steer away from this.
2. Stopping Harmful Habits
Most adolescents think the passage to becoming an adult quicker is to adopt adult vices, such as smoking or drinking alcohol. The thin blue line exists that anyone can become addicted to these bad habits. Young adults aren’t fully aware of the consequences of these types of addictions. Becoming an adult involves realizing how detrimental these bad habits are, this by quitting altogether or using in moderation, this for a healthier life.
1. Trusting Others Too Easily
The nature of children is they’re too trusting and gullible towards others. What then can occur is that people with bad intention, will take advantage of them because of this trusting nature. One sign of adulthood is to become more aware of oneself, so they won’t be taken advantage of. To make more rational decisions, and not making decisions based on emotions. It’s usually the experience of getting hurt, which forces young adults to become less trusting of others.
