Are children ready to make decisions like adults?

I mean if they are ready to decide about their future. Are they mature enough?

    Mar 31 2012: I think that they can, they also can take their some of their own decisions better that their parents can do because I think that maturity isn't conditioned at the age, and this relies on the childs environment and personnality.
    • Apr 1 2012: I agree with you about making their own decisions in some cases, but mostly kids think that they are mature enough and decisions which they're making are right, but the truth is that they are not, so "maturity isn't conditioned at the age" sometimes is true and sometimes not. That's my opinion.
