    Age Doesn't Always Come With Wisdom

    I've been around people of all ages in life and let me tell you, the whole maturity and age equation just doesn't add up!  Take for instance  "JB"  when we hung out he was 55, and he was a complete idiot.  He did the most idiotic things!  He was...

    Working with children proves this every day. Not only through the way they interact with each other, but the way they carry themselves. Age has no relation to maturity what so ever. Life experiences, upbringing, education, to name a few, all have an effect on how mature someone...
