I think that in today's society in America adults do wait to long to treat teenagers like adults. Here are some pros and cons of having Americans have full rights and responsibilities at the age of 15 are. Pros are that they would have a say in the person that they would want to lead our country. They would take more responsibility sooner. They'd be able to have a say of what is right for their country. They would become more educated about the world in an adult way. Cons are that some teenagers wouldn't be able to keep up with everything that is going on. Some teenagers could misuse the rights of adulthood. They could become overwhelmed with responsibilities. School and working for a living could be hard for them. Those are some pros and cons of having full rights and responsibilities of adults at the age of 18.
