Is 12 the new 16?

Don't mean to be disrespectful to any of you 12-year-olds (or even younger) out there, but I apologize in advance if I offend you.

I'm seeing more and more kids thinking they know the world like the back of their hand. Now, I realize I'm not quite old enough to call myself a full-fledged adult, but I'm seeing a lot of kids around the age of 12 or 13 claiming they're "not young" or "not kids". I laugh, because I'm 19 and still consider myself "young" and a "kid" (maybe not a child, but still, I'm pretty immature lol)

I take it that the majority of y'all are around 14-16, based from some of the more active members of this wikia; but when I was 12, sheesh, I barely knew anything I know today. I teach Sunday School at my church and the kids I teach are listening to the same kinds of music I'm listening to, playing the same video games, watching the same TV-- And they're all still in grade school! I just had a conversation with this 13 year old a few weeks ago and I asked her if she watched 'iCarly' or Disney and she told me that she would rather watch MTV or Vh1; I don't even watch those channels. I didn't even start watching anything on MTV until I was like, 17, at least.

But I digress-- Back to my main question, are kids really maturing (mentally, anyway) faster in this day and age? Or was I just brought up in a really sheltered home? Has it always been like this?

tl;dnr; Are kids growing up faster than before?
