Adolescence Should Now Be From 10 To 24 Years Old

They argue for delaying the end of adolescence, which starts at 10 years old, from 19 years old to 24 years old.

The reasons are varied including but not limited to youth continuing their education for longer, delayed marriages, delayed parenthood etc.

Puberty starts when your brain starts to release a hormone that activates your body's pituitary and gonadal glands.

The researchers argue that law changes may be necessary, saying that we should consider anyone between the ages of 10-24 to be an "adolescent" and offer them additional state support.

Writing in the medical journal's Child and Adolescent Health publication, doctors from the Royal Victoria Hospital in Melbourne argue that the biological and social development associated with the transition to adulthood now takes far longer than in past generations.

The past century has seen drastic changes in the definition of adolescence, which encompasses elements of biological growth and major social role transitions. The age of mensuration in girls shows a drop down of 4 years in the past 150 years. Now the adults don't get their wisdom teeth until the age of 25 years.

The research paper was published this week in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health.

In can termed as the change in mindsets and priority list of the adults and young people that the scholars had asked for the change in the age of adolescence.

But Dr Jan Macvarish, a parenting sociologist at the University of Kent, says there is a danger in extending our concept of adolescence. As society continues to develop, young people marry and have children later.

"There is nothing inevitably infantilising about spending your early 20s in higher education or experimenting in the world of work".

This might translate to still living at home with your parents, or it might just mean you go home more often to do laundry and hang out, since you don't have a family of your own yet.
