Kids are smart

#2
  • Can't consent.
  • Can't make informed decisions.
  • Planning skills develop at 13 for around 96+% (select minority develop it earlier, 'genius' types etc).
  • Lots of aimless creativity, incredibly unsophisticated logical framework with regards to applying it.
  • Aimless thinking is encouraged and rewarded by adults, they go easy only being harsh on the dumb, immature ways when it's a teen and it's suddenly less cute.

Stop being lazy, and I thought you give reliable evidence too! I only forfeited because you did, and you only presented your own opinion on why kids are incompetent, probably from your personal experience, though not for most people!
