Is there a difference in the definition of the term negligence or negligent as it relates to a minor?

Yes. As it relates to a minor, “negligence” or “negligent” means the failure to use that degree of care which an ordinarily careful boy or girl of the same age, capacity and experience would use under the same or similar circumstances. Please be aware, however, that this definition does not apply to minor who are operating motor vehicles.
