Puberty starts at 10-12, that's too soon. I would say 17 and no sooner. Adolescence is mostly done and we have decided as a society thats the point to begin trusting people to make adult decisions.

The gold standard should probably be "when you're old enough to get a job and pay for it yourself". Coincidentally, that is more or less about when puberty has finished wrecking havoc on kids minds and bodies.

These days, that time comes around age 32

no it isn't.....

different story, same principle....

my daughter's first grade teacher tried to diagnose her as adhd (yeah, mine has my steam engine)

I told my ex-wife, "you don't want me to do a parent teacher thingy.....tell her to fuckkkk the fukkkk off in the way that 'you can'! ....no motherfucckinnnnnnnnnnnnng wayyyyyyyy am I'm putting my 6 yr old on adderall!"

it's been a smoothie with her in development henceforth....she now tells me at 18.4, "dad, these people are crazy!"

these shite for brains 'wannabee phds' can just flat out lick it, suck it, and kiss my lily white one....

it's disgusting what is discussed amongst the many these.....it's downright disturbing how stupid people have become in my lifetime.....

Their long term will be exactly the same as the day they were born. Any time they veer from that, a parents job is to correct them, not join in the madness.

Willing to bet this kid doesn't have a dad in his life...

What a shame. While his mother has the IQ of a pile of rocks, I really feel bad for the kid.

That's the 1950s-1980s way of parenting my friend. You need to get on board with change and progressive parenting...
