WHen do 15 year old boys stop acting immature?

I have a 15-year-old boy currently. I'm praying he'll grow up soon and become a mature responsible human being. Doing everything we can to ensure this actually happens. I think they grow up when they...do something someday - omg, I have no idea when they'll ever start acting mature. Sigh.

They STOP acting immature? Wait a minute.. did I miss a brochure or something.. lol! Its all in how the boy was raised and how he is an individual to be honest.. they are RAGING hormones at that age.. and its all confusing to them.. Boys mature slower emotionally and mentally and well all areas than girls.. its the design of it all.. They are just different than us. There are great boys out there that are on good paths.. please wait for these ones.. it will make life so much less complicated!! I encourage the process (since I am 30 now) by addressing each young male as "gentlemen.." or "thank you sir".. I try to catch them being mature as much as possible when I see them and encourage them in what I see.. (boys need this forever btw.. even as old men.. sorry, its true..) that way it sets a standard up there for them to start thinking about.. :) Be a lady yourself, and you will start seeing more mature gentlemen down the road.. but you gotta get through some "goofs" first.. its the test of a lady and we all must go through it.. few survive with sanity.. but I think you will be fine ;)
