Religiously- (12 and under) I am Jewish..and had my Bar Mitzvah at 13 (which is when you become an adult in the Jewish religion) Legally- (18)...sex, cigs...etc.. Chemically- (21)..legal drinking age in the United States... Mens auto insurance- (25)..we have our insurance dropped at this age which could technically mean we are a full adult As you can tell there is no "definition" of "grown adult" and age correlation...it differs...

18... thought this was common knowledge?
In America though... a bit confusing. How can 'an adult' not be able to drink until they're 21... they've been an adult for 3 years? They can legally drive at 16 (a child, behind the wheel)... but they can't drink yuntil they're 21?!?!?! MADNESS
When your parents don't pay for your bills anymore, you are an adult.
Legally, 18. Socially, whenever you start acting mature. This can be before or after your 18th birthday.
It varies, but generally 13. Then you're a teen. Then technically at around 17 for girls, early 20s for guys they become adults (fully grown, not maturity level).
18 but it's questionable whether some people actually reach adulthood!
physically, until puberty
legally, until you're 18 (or 21 for alcohol) realistically, until you're out of the house and have this thing called a "mailbox" and everything is addressed to you, even the bills

I reckon for girls it's 25 or until they stop asking if their labia is ugly or their boobs are too small, boys it's 28-30ish, or depending on how early they left their mother's apron strings.
Overall, you're not a child if you can laugh hard at this statement "there's so much discrimination against young people/teenagers, it's not fair" that's when you know you've landed.
from this age you are allowed to do everything in europe
Until you can depend on yourself. I don't think it depends on the age only. Age is just a number, you know. I know 15 years old kids who are incredibly mature for their age and I also know 30 years old who are still dependent on others.
In my opinion, when you're 18. Because you're legal & graduating high school & about to be out from under your parents' roof, away at college.
