The 7 Marks of Maturity

Jan 01, 1970 / Life Stage: Pre-Teens and Teenagers     

When they can demonstrate maturity. That can be a tricky thing to pinpoint these days. Your teen may look like an adult physically, but emotionally still be child-like.

Second, they are unshaken by flattery or criticism. Third, they possess a spirit of humility. I'd like to share the rest of the 7 Marks of Maturity.
