Common in the United States are graduation, turning a certain age (16, 18, or 21), getting a driver’s license, and moving out of the parents’ home. Religious and culturally specific ceremonies might include Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Christenings, and Quinceaneras.

    • Key features of this event
    • The effects those features had on your transition
    • The degree to which this rite of passage is universal in the United States
