People tend to take 13 year olds MUCH MORE seriously than 12 year olds.
Anyone know why that's a thing that is?

Its interesting.

It happens because of the growing up you do. When I hit 13 I got taller, stronger and more mature. I remember getting a lot more responsabilitys then.

I haven't seen this much, but maybe it has to do with the 13 year old being a teenager and the 12 year old not being one? Eh, I don't know.

TRUTH

Yep. I was really mature when I was 10+ so I always hung out with the adults and older people. I thought kids were so immature and annoying. I liked playing with them but I didn't trust them.

Now I like to listen to older folks tell stories of their life and I am really good with money too.

I used to teach and give suggestions to young adults about money...when I was 13.

When I turned 13 everything just got more serious and interesting.

Exactly, I remember when I was 12 I always wanted to seem cool with people and act like a big kid. Now I just feel, meh. More intellectual in a way.

It's pretty weird, I have the size, strength, and maturity of a 13 year old, but I'm 12.

I don't think anyone's mature until they hit 15 and get introduced to highschool, driving, basically early life.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I am not sure about other places, but in Estonia you officially start taking somewhat responsibilities in law and whatnot when you're 13, so that may be a part of the reason.

Will anyone teach me what will exactly happen when you turn 13? I'm turning 13 on November soon...
The only thing would change once I hit 13, would probably be much more responsibilities, because my siblings grow older, so I have to help around the house more...


All my friends, and most of the girls in my age already have periods expect me.

I'm 13 and I'm technically in high school right now. But I do agree with the fact that when you start an early life and such you are an independent mature person.

*deep, attention-attracting cough*
I think there are kids browsing this forum.

Yeah. Says someone with a name of 'BEEPYOU' as well.
+Saying attention-attracting attracts more attention which you obviously don't want me to do.
But yeah, lets move on from that subject.. :sweatdrop:

But does it really matter if you're a teenager or not? Being one doesn't make you any more honest to people than you already are...

It is quite strange. Nothing really happens on the exact moment you turn 13. I always used to think I'd feel different, instantly. Obviously throughout the next few years there are changes.

I find age, to be more of an average, annual, social statistic. I'm sorry if that doesn't make sense.

But what I mean, is:

We are all unique, we change at different times, puberty comes at different ages. Age is just a status. (Accurate, to measure time spent on earth).
But not a VERY accurate measurement to determine things such as maturity, and puberty.

And for the thread topic,

I'm not sure why people seem to treat a 13 year old individual, more seriously , than a 12 year old individual.
It may just be the age statistic I wrote about earlier. Subconsciously rating the persons maturity level with social age.

This is just my opinion though.

TL;DR
Age is a statistic. It doesn't measure maturity, but is often treated as such. Possibly Subconsciously, because age (And it's modern restrictions) has always been a part of our life.

Aging is like leveling up. You get more respect and therefore, more pros.

maybe its just a coincidence. I'm 12 years old and i happen to be more mature then much other 12 year olds so i am treated normally. maybe its cause of the stereotype that 12 year olds are dumb and immature, that people don't even bother to understand them.

Agreed. People see 12 year old and young children and just treat them like children. Then when they turn 13, just 'visualizing' that someone has turned 'teen' may have something to do with why people take 13 year olds more serious.
