I recently asked my grandson if he was excited about Christmas. Half-lidded, 13-year-old eyes flicked toward me. “Whatever,” he gushed. It brought back powerful memories of those golden years of trying not to show any emotion, especially positive ones, in order to simulate adulthood. Today that condition is the subject of much debate. Behaving like an adult doesn’t have many rules anymore. Or start as early, either.
