How to treat infantile
Becoming an adult passport, infantile people are not ready to build relations with other members of society, it is difficult to find work all for the same reason. All anything, but such people marry early, and now the entire care falls on the spouse. In marriage, all the negative traits of the "child" appear very clearly:1. Egocentrism, as Infante believes that the world revolves around him. 2. The inability to make decisions and inability to exercise will power to manifest in the details.3. Dependency, and it is not only and not so much the material side of the question. Adult child is unable to care for themselves at home, and if in such a marriage have children, then care about them is fully shifted to the spouse who plays the role of "big brother".
In this situation, the infantile maturity of a person depends on spouse or parents, if he is still on their security. All actions should be aimed primarily at changing their own positions. Usually in this situation the wife whose husband spent days lying on the couch and refuses to take responsibility, begins to nag him. In response, he begins a game of make-believe. To disappear the child, he must first lose the "parent". And for this we need to stand on the position of the adult who has ceased to care about "baby" and nurture it.
The reaction of the infantile man, who robbed him of his bright rainbow world of irresponsibility, can be different. First he will try to return the situation to its previous status. Most likely, he will pretend to be helpless, to put pressure on the pity. If the wife/mother will bravely hold the position of an adult, the infant will begin to recover from his illness. The second scenario – the child will lose interest and go on to find a new "mom". If the attempted cure has taken my mother, he had run away from her marriage; if the wife, then such marriage will come to an end.
In fact, excessively pushing their child/husband, mother/wife also gets something in return. She feels needed, useful. If the mother does not have enough arguments to change the situation, then she needs to come to an understanding that her child will never be truly happy in adult life, being unadapted to the realities, he will suffer. Wife often themselves tired of the infantile men, and they are specific arguments do not have to look. Even if there is fear of divorce, you need to understand that a Mature man and immature still don't get along.

"Oh, children, children! So great is their faith in mother's love, that it seemed to them that they can afford to be a little more heartless!" (James Barry. Peter Pan)

Peter pan, the hero of old nursery tales, classic representative navyaschevoy teenager, moreover, that refuse to grow up, provoking his actions on inappropriate response, selfish, often indifferent, irritable, arrogant, but requires exceptional attention.

As a rule, infantilism is a consequence of modern education.

The modern way certainly is good that facilitates our everyday life and thus blurs the boundaries of responsibility for the survival ones from his childhood before the dilemma of making immediate decisions on which depends not only the welfare but the lives of the whole family.

A few years ago an American anthropologist Carolina Izquierdo of the University of California published a paper which touched on the topic of growing up on the juxtaposition of archaic and modern education. In this work she described two situations: the first is the attitude to education of 6-year-old child in the Peruvian Matsigenka tribe living in the Amazon, where Caroline spent the next few months, the second – scenes from the life of an ordinary American family.

So the first situation: one day, the tribe members moved in dvuhmetrovoy "expedition" to gather food for the tribe. A little girl of 6 years asked me to took him. Even though she did not have a clear defined role in the tribal community, she became a full and useful member of the expedition: carried sleeping mats, were caught, cleaned and cooked crayfish for all members of the expedition, independently having made the decision to do it. She was calm, Mature, and demanded nothing for himself.

The second situation is from the work of anthropologist refers to the life of a normal American middle class family: 8-year-old girl, not finding next to a plate of cereal device for ten minutes I sat and waited for her to give, and a 6 year old boy at this time persuaded his father to untie his shoelaces for sneakers.
