5. Ah, but here we are discussing
emotional maturity, aren't we?

Some people who occupy incredibly high offices in this land frequently behave childishly, but then I've met some incredibly mature 12 year-olds.

Personally, I still see college students in many ways as children. College is that last stage where we are still connected to our parents. It is once we leave college that MOST of us cut the final parental ties.
