Adulthood means reaching the point in your life where you are responsible for everything that you do and held fully accountable. Teens and children are given some leeway by the world and those in charge of it because of their age and inexperience, but when you become an adult this is no longer the case. Adulthood means that you are expected to carry your own weight in life and to pay your own bills. Nothing makes adults wish for childhood more than a pile of unpaid bills stacked up on the table. If teens understood what being an adult is really about they would not wish for it as badly as they do, because the glamor and privileges are not quite what teens envision. Adulthood means the freedom to make your own choices, but also the responsibility to make these choices the right ones. Many so called adults are still struggling with making good choices and being responsible.
Being a REAL PARENT is a full-time job not just some weekend visits or a check! REAL PARENTS want to and do take care of their kids without a court order forcing them to! Paying child support doesn’t make you a parent! Children need guidance, quality time, love and affection every step of the way in being raised having BOTH PARENTS in their life!
