The Age of Responsibility
Transcript of The Age of Responsibility
Adv. English 2 / Period 7
January 27, 2015
All in all, finding the true age of responsibility seems almost impossible.
No two people mature at the same time
Body Paragraph Three
Though the true age of responsibility is when one has matured, scientists have stepped into the picture with some new research.
"What they've found is that in most people....the brain is not truly formed until the age 25" (Greenblatt)
"What's important, after all, is not passing a test or meeting an arbitrary age requirement, but learning lessons and applying them to real life." (Greenblatt)
My name is Danielle Santiago.
The Age of Responsibility can not be one set age because not everyone matures at the same age or in the same way.
Body Paragraph One
One's true age of responsibility is based on the age where they have fully matured.
"Nowadays teens face more cultural pressure than ever to grow up fast..." (Greenblatt)
"....every person is different and develops at his own pace..." (Greenblatt)
Body Paragraph Two
When lawmakers think of what the age of responsibility should be set at, they aren't really thinking of maturity but rather averaging when a brain is fully developed.
"The debate on drinking hinges on the question of whether the age of responsibility has been set too high." (Greenblatt)
"....lowering the legal limit to 18 would only be pushing the drinking problem down to 16-17 year olds." (Wagenaar)
