I have this book and I agree that we are infantilizing teens through restrictions and lower standards, and that we need competency- based restrictions, and not age- based restrictions. However, his solutions, such as different competency tests for everything (e.g. sex, voting, drinking, and smoking) I don't agree with. He thinks people of any age who don't know about birth control and protection should not be allowed to have sex. He proposes allowing 5 year olds to vote if they simply know what voting is. If a 4 year old steals we can give him a competency test and if he simply says stealing is wrong/ you can go to jail for stealing then he gets an adult punishment. He doesn't realize some things can only come with age/ time and he never said we should become legal adults when we have independent judgment and foresight skills. He does bring up how people used to marry young, but there isn't any research on whether they were ready for it or regretted it.
