They say a man's mind does not truly mature until he is 24. For the young man finding his way in the world.

I am 62 so not a young man. But here is my observations on this.

 some "men' never mature. They stay adolescents and cutodians of 'moderd chemistry', drinkers etc and always find someone else responsible for their own failures.

If akid smoke pot at 12 to 17 years of age I am sad to say there sems ot be no longer nay hope of his brain maturing.

I ma not against pot eirther, used it myself at odd times and it is leagl to buy and sell in my state too and there are Marijuynaa shops evrywhere. Some peop have legitmate medical ned for it too.

Neurosccience shows most male brains are not fully formed to sometime between 23 and 17.

But the diffrence has many factors, most all are 'expereince' based thoughy. That which does not kill us can make us stronger. But if person has an easy life, he is not going to mature mentally very quickly and sometimes never.

Now in my ancient day the draft and the war handled that prety quickly for most of us.

The central thing that makes pron advance, mentally, spiriutally and in evry other way is first their onw personal, psotive and strong slef-image of themselves.

 

If you can provide means for person to augment and strengthe their own personal self-image they will mature faster and better than any other thing that can be done for them.

Also have compassion too, one can never legitmately compare their pain to another's pain. What might drive someone to sucide or homocide might to me be nothing at all. Something that might be nothing at all and frogotten and moved on from quickly by another, might send me into weeks of depression.

Please think on that as well

Hello,

I'm getting a little information here.  I have been a school teacher, minister to 18 to 25 year old's, and trained in leadership development.  I would like to start a lifestyle personal growth consultation business.  I would like to know if there are any young men interested to have such a person in their lives to help them map out a success plan for life?

I just turned 24 so I'll stick around until I'm 25.  I'm an A.o.M. enthusiast.

Introductions: My name is Brian and i am 23...perhaps at the end of maturity according to the title of this group, but nevertheless, i recently realized that i am not on par with many of the older gentlemen on the main site. quoting myself, "if i am TRULY wise beyond my years, God save us all." ...i thought for a long time that i was, yet discovered in myself that i've been holding onto childish things. i look forward to sharing with this group in the future. congrats to those who figured out they wanted to be 'men's men' long before i did. you have the upper hand, my friend. not i. do not envy the years and experience of others, but strive to make your own much greater than theirs.

Right, well..
I am Viktor, fifteen years old living in Vancouver, BC (Canada). Joined the AoM community just today and found that this group is genius! Considering how much this page seems to target and inspire older men but doesn't seem to take into account that men are formed young.
