When we saw grow up do we mean being responsible or being a stodgy, dull grown up? We do the responsibility part, but I’m known to be a bit childlike.
My statement was a gross over-generalization, but to me, being an adult means the ability to postpone immediate pleasures for future ones, being self-reliant and for taking responsibility for ones actions. Having a kid isn’t a necessary condition, but it does concentrate the mind most singularly on the aforementioned.
I mena the responsibility part and there’s nothing wrong wit hbeing childliike either. By childish I mean the tendency to refuse to face the reality of one’s situation and a willingness to protect and guide one’s children.
A lot of parents have children and then decide to get involved with unsuitable people who negatively affect the future and ruin the child’s life.

Childlike is good!
Childish is stupid.
I am childlike in many ways. I have lots of simple fun.
My sisters are childish and most of their grown children ignore them and love me.
The last baby born was named after me.
