Some "rites of passage" in our culture are that you can drive when you turn 16, you graduate from high school when you are 18, you move out of your parents house at 18, and you go into college at 19. I think that these experiences help us come of age because they mean that we are maturing. I think that "growing up" never ends. Everyday you learn new things and you will continue to do so until you die.
I agree with the fact that these experiences help us mature.
We never stop getting older. Yeah, it might take lifetime to "grow up".
I think some rites of passage are like, when we turn 16 we get to drive, and we get to vote and we graduate when we turn 18. I think that these experiences can help us have more responsibility and that I think is a big part of growing up.
Oh yaah we get to vote. That's a good one.
I like how you mentioned voting as one of the priveleges we get.
I agree, I think these experiences are what helps us grow up.
I agree with the responsibilities help you grow up
Some rights of passage are getting a drivers license, graduating high school, and getting a job. These do help us grow up because they don't all come at once, we gradually get them. Growing up doesn't take a certain number of years, it just depends on the person.
I like how you mention that these "rites of passage" are gradual, and they don't come all at once, so we are constantly becoming more mature, and learning and taking responsibility of our lives.
I like how you said that it depends on the person. It's totally up to them if they want to grow up or still be a child
I like how you said that it doesn't take a certain number of years for a person to grow up it depends on the person.
I like how you mention growing up is a gradual thing resulting from responsibly.
I like how you pointed out that it depends on the person.
Great example with graduating high school! Also, great point on how it depends on the person.
We are able to drive at 16, we graduate from high school and hopefully move out when we are 18, we can drink at 21, and we graduate from college. I think they do help us grow up because they force us to have more responsibility and we have to have more control with what we do. I don't think anybody is ever full "grown up". Life is a learning experience and even elders still learn
I think how you said that e never fully "grow up" and that even when we're older we still learn..
Yah I agree how you said that these experiences force responsibility onto you.
I really like how you said "hopefully move out" 😂😂. Also, you bring up an amazing point with everyone not fully growing up.
I like how you mention more responsibility
Rites of passages might be are like drinking and smoking legal limits because they think you are old enough to choose. I think this helps people be more mature because it gives them more things to be responsible for. I don't really think people truly grow up.
I agree with what you said about how no one truly grows up
I agree that people never truly grow up
Some things in our culture that is a "rite of passage" are graduating kindergarten, 8th grade, high school, and college. Or getting you ur drivers license. Getting your first job. Yes I do it shows us that we are growing up and need to be more responsible. Your whole life. Even if you are considered an adult you still have things to learn.
Getting your first job is a big deal!
I think some rites of passage in our culture are getting into high school, getting a drivers license, passing high school, and graduating college and getting a job. I think these experiences help us to become more responsible and more of an adult. I think growing up takes longer even then those rites of passage though because even as we get older we still have that mentaility of a kid hidden away and sometimes it comes back out .
I agree that growing up takes longer. Our inner kid never really goes away and it shows from time to time.
I love how you mentioned deep down we always have that kid side to us that come out, and for others it's a little more frequent.
The rite of passage in my house is when you kill your first big game animal. I am pretty sure this is different for everyone else. I do believe these trials or experiences help us come of age because it shows a lot of respect and discipline. It is going to take me my whole life to grow up. My mom says me and my dad are her biggest kids. But I believe that a whole lifetime is how long it takes to grow up.
I agree that it takes a whole lifetime to grow up
I think that it takes a lifetime too. Even then, they still might not be "grown up."
That is pretty adult-like because back then, people relied on the "men" of the family to provide food.
Some of our rights of passages are voting,driving,going out to lunch at school,ect yea I do believe that certain experiences help us to mature and learn responsibilities I think growing up can few years for some people and for others it takes a long time just depends on the person
I agree. It completely depends on the person.
Some rites of passages are your sweet sixteen birthday, when we get to drive, when we graduate high school, when we turn 21, and lastly when we graduate college. I also think starting a family is one.
I do think that they help some people grow up but some other people I don't think ever grow up.
I like how you mentioned starting a family
I like how you brought up that family is a rite of passage.
I agree with what you said about how when we start a family that usually helps us grow up.
I think one of the rites is when teens turn 18. They can legally live by themselves, vote, etc. They get labeled as an adult. Graduating high school, then graduating college is also a rite of passage. I think graduating and moving on to whatever is next in your life is definitely life changing and you have to "grow up" to be able to continue living without relying on your parents. I think growing up varies per person.
I like how you said kind of starting your own life without your parents to rely on. That's a big rite of passage.
Some rites of passage in are culture is getting into highschool, driving, actually dating, then graduating, college, marriage, having a job. I think all these experiences help us mature and have responsibilities in our life. I think growing up all depends on the person. There level of maturity may vary depending on gender and or life setting.
I like how you said it depends on the life setting.
We turn 16 which allows us to drive completely, no limits. And a sweet sixteen birthday is the big one. We can drink and do adult stuff ar 21. I think growing up depends on your experiences that have happened to you. Like you could be really mature at 13 if something traumatizing happened to them.
I love all the examples that you give of rites
Being able to drive when you're 15 and legally drinking alcohol when you're 21 are pretty "adult-like". Yes, teens are definitely more independent when they start driving and they don't have to rely on their parents as much. I don't think being legally intoxicated is very cool, but adults like it so yeah. Everybody grows up different and some take longer than other so, there is not a specific length of time for "growing up".
I like how you mentioned being able to drive at 15.
When you turn 16 you get the chance to drive alone or with someone. I think they help us get over our age. I feel like we never grow up because we are always learning new things and improving yourself.
I like how you said we never fully grow up because I agree with at 100%
Some rights of passage would be when you get your drivers license, when you turn 18 and/or 21 and when you hit puberty. Some of these experiences do help us to "come of age" like for example, you have to be pretty mature to study for a driving test. I think growing up takes as long as it takes for that person to be able to live well (successful) in this world.
We don't have a lot of ceremonial events that take place to say you are coming of age. It's more of your choices and life events that happen that might help you come of age. I think growing up takes a long time. Because you are always going to meet new experiences and face new challenges that will help you grow more.
I love that we are facing new challenges when you grow up
Graduating is a rite of passage because that is kind of when you are kicked out of you house. Typically we go to college, the army, or get a job and all of those require you to be mature. A lot of time you are on your own without as much guidance from your parents and family. Yeah they can help us come of age but also they can do the opposite. If that person isn't ready then they can make bad choices instead of good ones. It takes humans a long time to grow up compared to other mammals. It also depends on how we have been raised.
