Moving from childhood to adulthood is an important transition which is recognised differently from culture to culture. In the Americans and Canadians celebrate “Sweet 16” which is in theory their last big party before reaching adulthood. Jewish children celebrate Bar or Bat Mitzvahs and girls in Latin America have their famous quinceanera celebrations when they are fifteen. Elsewhere around the world, this transition into adulthood does not include DJ’s and ballrooms rather poison, abandonment and pain.
