I ask because, here in Texas, you can sign contracts at 18 but you can't drink or smoke until 21. I don/t think it is the same around the world. I know parents tend not to see their own children as grown up, so I am talking about everyone else, or society, or whatever word you use.

right answer.parents treat there child always.
I agree, I'm 32 and when I see an 18 year old they just seem so young, naive, and immature. 21 should be the legal age for it all, once they've had some minor bumps and bruises and learned a few things along the way.
also a minor can not enter into any contract. So if you make a sale or do some other type of deal with a minor you have no standing in a court.
If minor opens Facebook ID by misrepresenting to be above 18 & also accesses the information meant for adults then it should be left to the minor if he/she wants to be dealt as Major. It is an irony that a minor becomes major overnight legally,
