What do you call a half-baked (not quite experienced) and well-baked (well-experienced) person in English?
I'm looking for a metaphorical expression or preferably word, which can explain a person who has or has not experienced ups and downs of life and subsequently not able to decide, act, behave properly when it comes to.
- Don't shout at him. Try not to blame him this much. He's just a .............. young person. I think the only person who understands our son is your father. This is why everyone calls him a....................... [said wife to her husband privately about their son].
The only words that come to mind are:
Although both pairs work properly in the blanks, but as I mentioned, I need some metaphors to explain such people. I wonder if you let me know about it.
It could be great if "half-baked" and "baked" could sound natural in this sense. :))
