"We work, we pay taxes, we care for family members, we can drive, we can do so many other things. So, adding voting onto that isn't going to be that big of a responsibility. We can handle it," said Alex Shyer, a 16-year-old Sophomore at Woodrow Wilson High School.
16-year-olds can do so many things like having sex with older men. I guess it shouldnít be statutory rape since 16-year-olds are such responsible mature decision-makers.

It doesnít matter how smart teens are or how well they scored on the SAT or ACT. Good judgment isnít something they can excel in, at least not yet.

The rational part of a teenís brain isnít fully developed and wonít be until age 25 or so.

In fact, recent research has found that adult and teen brains work differently. Adults think with the prefrontal cortex, the brainís rational part. This is the part of the brain that responds to situations with good judgment and an awareness of long-term consequences. Teens process information with the amygdala. This is the emotional part.

In teenís brains, the connections between the emotional part of the brain and the decision-making center are still developingóand not necessarily at the same rate. Thatís why when teens experience overwhelming emotional input, they canít explain later what they were thinking. They werenít thinking as much as they were feeling.... https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyc...ContentID=3051

I could pull out almost any teenager from behind the counter of a Burger King and get a more rational thinker, and someone with better judgment than the 70-year-old toddler in the WH.

I'm sure that your Burger King crew is all world thinkers. Real world problem solvers... You flip them burgers racesteps and be all you can be. Tell us more you know it all... You kids are really silly.
