Children in America grow up with individualism, because America is a center-right country. Children in Europe stay children much longer, not only because they are allowed to but also because the older culture is much more woven around nurturing and education, which not only defines the children's roles but also the adults' roles, which continues into adulthood and class differentiation. It must also be why cultural pluralism and political correctness have reached philosophical status here before it could finally be wiped out. I think it is much better to treat children as adults as soon as they like to be treated that way, but it must not be a reversal of roles, where they become the adults.
