many of my friends doesn’t like watching animation, reading comics, or playing video games because they think those kind of things are childish…also when i tried to invite some of them to an amusement park, especially disneyland, they refuse with the same argument…but i disagree with those assumptions…why do they call it childish? what is the definition of childish actually?

i inputted the query of “define:childish” into google and the definition from wordnet says “indicating lack of maturity” while wiktionary defines it “of or suitable for a child; behaving immaturely”…if we think of the first definition from wiktionary, perhaps those things i mentioned above can fit in, but only in some extent…not all animation or comics are suitable for children, and amusement park like disneyland can also be enjoyed by adults…so i agree more with the “immaturity” definition…childish talks about character, not hobby or interest…as apostle Paul said also, childish ways are related with the way of talking, thinking, and reasoning…

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”
-1 Cor 13:11 [NIV]

children can’t make decision by themselves, their parents who do that in their behalf…children only care about themselves, although they get something e.g.candies from their parents, not all children are willing to share their candies even to their parents who first gave them…children will get angry if they don’t get what they want e.g.when they ask their parents to buy them toys…and i believe all of you can mention other things when you compare the differences between children and adults…so if someone is already a grown-up man but still doing those things, then he/she is childish…

it’s totally fine to like ‘children things’, but you can still be responsible, care for others, have good manners…but it’s no more than a hypocrite who said that people who like ‘children things’ are childish, but he himself still only thinks about himself, get angry easily over insignificant things, don’t want to take any responsibilities…

do you agree with me?
