40 Special Happy 18th Birthday Wishes

Clocking eighteen is a special time in every teenager’s life. It is like an age that comes to lead the person into a gateway of self-realization. At this stage, it is expected that the teenager starts taking steps to cross into adulthood. With this age comes freedom and with freedom comes discipline and numerous decision making. With decision making comes responsibilities. As parents, friends, and well-wishers it is our duty to let them know that we wish them well. It is good to give them inspiring messages, to appreciate them, and to join them as they celebrate their big and Happy 18th birthday.

A good 18th birthday message should send love, it should make the reader laugh and smile, but it should never be sarcastic or insulting.

Below are lists of Happy birthday wishes you can use for your friend or your child who just turns 18.
