Babies are seen as immature. Who can blame them, they are babies. Toddlers are seen as immature when they act like babies. Teenagers are seen as immature when they act like toddlers. College students are seen as immature when they fail to exercise self-control. By the time we are adults, we no longer have an excuse because we now have the ability to show self-control. Self-control refers to using our minds to make choices to behave properly. We now have the ability to control our urges or natural impulses. We no longer are like an abandoned ship on the sea with no control of our rudder and sail, being tossed by the wind and the waves. We are still on board, with a full crew who can not only sail the ship, but throw down an anchor if needed.
