One thing I learned (by observation) from my years in public schools was that people usually dont mature past the maturity they have accumulated at about 12 years old. In the old days a 12 year old was taking care of siblings, possibly working a job or working the farm, they were expected to be functioning as adults, they were adults. Nowadays a 12 year old is immature, unmotivated, uninformed, misguided and lost -- not any different than they will be when they are 32, 42, 52, etc. Most folks who are successful and mature were successful and mature at 12. Now you've got politicians saying its only right to allow a child to stay on their parents insurance until they are 26 years old! A 26 year old should be independent of their parents and possibly a parent themselves!
