The two events necessary for children to become an adult Score: 3.5 November 18th, 2017 by yozora184

The life of a person can be divided into two parts, childhood and adulthood. Each period has its own characteristics, but its is quite difficult to determine the exact time of changing. Some might say that the age will decide whether a person is a child or an adult, but I believe there are many other factors those are more important. In this essay, I would like to discuss the important events the person must experience before being an adult.

The first experience is a failure. It would be a fun and easy life if every day was a success. However, this is impossible to most people, and the person will have to experience bad events in their lives. In my opinion, those events should occur as early as possible. If the person suddenly came into a terrible situation, it would be difficult for the person to overcome it by his/herself. On the other hand, it would be easier for the person to attack the problem if he/she had already experienced a similar problem before. Considering this, it can be said that failure is necessary to be an adult, or in other words, to live by his/herself.

The second experience is working as a part time worker. An adult will have to live by his/herself, and it will be impossible for him/her to do so without earning money. If the person's first working experience was after being an adult, the person will have difficulty in working and earning money by their own. This situation will have to be evaded, and therefore, experiencing working while being a child, which is a period a person has supporter, is necessary.

As I mentioned in the previous paragraphs, the important for being an adult is being able to live alone. The two events I've mentioned before is necessary to accomplish this.
