Robin Marantz Henig says there are scientific claims that “brains are not fully developed until the mid-twenties…” (Evans, n.d.) That being said, we may act as though we are mature adults but mentally we are not fully prepared for adulthood. Along with the expectation to act and live like adults, many of us receive no real guidance to the “real world.” Personally, I believe that nobody can really prepare you for that experience, but I do think that there are preparations and advice that we can use as tools to help us along that journey....   [tags: Generation Y, Generation X, Strauss and Howe]
