When we are born to this world, there are some inevitable stages to go through, such as infancy, childhood, puberty, adolescence, youth, middle age, and finally elderliness. Yet, the most turbulent period, among all, in life is certainly puberty when one undergoes a metamorphosis from a child to an adult.
This dividing line between childhood and adulthood has caused people to develop various viewpoints about these two distinctive periods of life. Some prefer childhood simply because children are more innocent, honest, and supposedly happier. However, if I’m asked to choose one between the two, I would choose adulthood for several cogent reasons.
First and foremost, I’d like to admit that I really cherish my own independency and autonomy over my activities, while these two features are not always attributable to childhood. What’s more, on account of mental maturity that occurs in adulthood – irrespective of precocious children – adults, compared with children, tend to act much more logically. While we are talking about it, it must be noted that between emotionality and logicality, I do prefer the latter.
Eventually, owing to a high level of independency and logicality, which are two basic characteristics of adulthood, this group of people can assume different wise responsibilities and fulfill themselves in life.
In short, in my idea, adulthood is more preferable to childhood since adults are more independent and logical than children, and they can also take more responsibilities in support of their efficacy in life.
