Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
Young adulthood is a time of transition. Typically defined from age 18 to 29 years, this period encompasses milestones including starting college, entering the workforce, and establishing independent social function, with a gradual loosening of ties to one’s family of origin. Although it is a time of greater responsibilities, it is, to a certain extent, a time of personal exploration, with a moratorium on taking full adult roles.
