Discussion: Early Adulthood

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss BOTH of the following questions:

  • Q1: At what age would you consider a person to be an adult? Explain your reasoning. Are there specific milestones that need to be accomplished?
  • Q2: How important do you think the accomplishment of intimacy vs. isolation is? Can a person lead a happy life without finding a significant other? Explain using examples from your life supported by information from the reading.

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links with necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Then return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
