Umm.. I think that over 20 is starting to be adult coz this time it 's much enough you will be able responsible yourself. About 18 or 19 is time studying in university not high school so isnt like child. For 35 it 's too old to just start to call adult in my opinion!

When one grows out of puberty and understands what adolescence really means.

You're never an adult... just less confused (at times) adolescent!

There is no real distinguishing line between such age groups. For legal reasons, most countries make it about 18 - 21 years old. That's when you're old enough to take responsibility for your own actions... but then in some countries you can drive before this age... a big responsibility.

In legal terms (at least in my country) you are considered an adult when you are 18 years old and, then, you have to take relevant decisions about your own life. But legality doesn´t decide when you are prepared to be a mature person. I think that the main important university to be self conscious about the meaning of life is life itself.
It´s said that a middle aged person gets through a crisis because all he has built starts to fall down. Then, enjoy your age!

when you realize that your life is so different than your dreams and when you are tired of dreaming and consider it as childish behaviours, then unfortunately you become an adult

Its natural we cant make ourselves children or adults, However over 18 is a good age since a person can decide what is good and bad
