Product Description

Exasperated parents ask their children, “When are you ever going to grow up?” But rarely do today’s young people even know what it means to grow up. In less than a century, we have moved from a society that never considered adolescence as a stage of life – or teenager as a word for that matter – to one that has created an artificial holding zone, denying children a necessary part of growing up.Faced with the huge impact of cultural changes-boomerang kids returning home to live after college, adult children unable to support themselves, immature minds controlling physically mature bodies – parents today are asking themselves, What have I done wrong? Why can’t my kids grow up? When will they become responsible adults?Meanwhile, teens are wondering about the mixed signals – Am I an adult at sixteen when I can drive, at eighteen when I can vote, or at twenty-one when I can legally drink? But I can’t even rent a car until twenty-five!Long recognized as essential, rites of passage marked a person’s transition from childhood to adulthood. Religious ceremonies, tribal rites, even employment or marriage historically served to draw that line – a line that is now blurred. Deprived of a balanced measure of responsibility and consequences, young people are developing false rites of passage – tattoos and piercings, gang membership, sexual promiscuity, and drug and alcohol abuse.
