About those "adult children"


In a conversation with a friend recently about my children, she said there ought to be a word or a term to describe offspring who have achieved adulthood—to distinguish them from pre-adult children. At the time, I had to agree with her, because my 18-, 21-, and 24-year-old progeny are surely no longer the small, dependent humans we usually think of as children.
