Subject: RE: BS: When do you become a grownup? (Study)
No, not having a child.   Parents dying is nearer the mark.   Mine haven't yet, but my dad won't be around too much longer and my father-in-law died last October. I thought then, "This is what being a grown up is all about"!

But of course, some lose their parents early on - every so often we have a kid at school in that situation.   Some cope better than others.
