FINE I’ll Call college students “kids”. I was wrong to call them adults

Everyone that acts like a kid, should be called a kid. If you aren’t yet responsible for necessities like food, clothing, and shelter. You are still a kid.
This perspective is new to me and my old stance was if you are over 18 you should be treated like and called an adult.
I mostly thought this when people would say college kids when they could legally drive, drink, sign up for war, and be charged as adults if they committed a crime. Adults adults adults!!!
That’s what I thought. THOUGHT…past tense.
Now, I see that these are mostly children. A college is a great place and a huge opportunity that a mature person should take full advantage of. But I see these children yes children…changing their majors, dropping out, going to activist marches, becoming social justice warriors…yikes. I mean it’s all well and good to do all of that but adults and mature adults usually maximize every opportunity and they try and utilize their time as best as possible.
I do not have time to be an activist…I’ve got a job and a family to provide for. But a college kid does. An adult doesn’t have time to be an activist. Because you are trying to get yourself food, clothing, and shelter. #aintnobodygottimeforthat
So yes. Until these kids grow up and begin to provide for themselves or others they are not adults. Age does not matter.
