The Determination of Policy

Young people in many countries suffer from having double standards applied to them. When it suits their elders, young people are expected to act as responsible adults; when this is inconvenient for older members of society, young people are expected to revert to childhood dependence. The dilemma is intensified by the tendency for young people to remain economically dependent on their parents for an increasing number of years while at the same time they are reaching physical maturity earlier.
