That's what I was going to say, more or less. I have 3 'kids', using the term loosely, ranging from 17 to 24. There were plenty of times they almost sent me to the asylum, but overall it's all about how you deal with stress and how well you hang onto your youth. The kids have little to do with it. My wife and I are both in our 'later' 40's and feel like twenty-somethings. We're healthy, active, happy and love life. That's what keeps us young. In fact, I think we're younger than our kids some days.
