Hmmm... I think actions affect trust, not age. In Sarah's case, I think her story is such that I would be skeptical regardless of the person's age.

Sara was always capable of fast learning and her age not important to trust her, confidence is something that you earn. For some people maybe will be difficult to trust in a younger stubborn person.

I agree. Someone can be old and be completely untrustworthy, while others can be young but have done things to show others that they are worthy of being trusted.

I don't think so. I think no matter what age you are if you can you can be trusted. I for the most part was a very trusted and always have been. In Sarah's case with her background I can see why she was hard to trust.
I don't think it's wise to put too much stock in a person's age to assess their level of trustworthiness, but rather by their behavior. "By their fruits shall ye know them."

Yes since age increase as wisdom then trust also become more serious and firm

True but a child's direct honesty.and innocence might well offset age and wisdom, for with age also comes ability to deceive trick.and confuse. So perhaps it might be easier to trust a child knowing the child is direct honest and not skilled in disguising motive or intent...
