AJ: I want to look like a teenager now but stay the same age.
Me: You don't want to look like a teenager before you are one.
Me: That would be dangerous.
AJ: Why would it be dangerous?
Me: Because people would think you were older than you were and expect more from you.
AJ: How would that be dangerous?
Me: Because they would make you do things that you didn't understand.
AJ: But how would that be dangerous?
Me: They might make you do things that could get you into trouble.
AJ: Like what?
Me: Like going out late at night with no adults around and you might get lost.
AJ: Oh. I don't want to look like a teenager yet.
Me: Didn't think so.
Phew! Crisis over!
