Subject: RE: BS: When do you become a grownup? (Study)
I think becoming a grownup is when you change from self-centeredness to thinking of another(s). I've noticed it in my family when someone becomes a parent. Suddenly, all perspective changes. I love it when my kids have a revelation, "Mom (the three syllable word), how did you do it?" (referring to hardships in my life that they were totally unaware of until they experienced the same thing)
"I used to be cool."
"I grew up."
