Psychologist Dr. Jean Twenge will address how educators, parents and those working with youth can better understand the young generation (iGen), how they differ from their predecessors — and how to teach them, mentor them and help them grow into well-rounded adults.
The author talk will run from 7-8:30 p.m., Feb. 5 at Bellevue Christian School, 1601 98th Ave. NE, Clyde Hill.
Have smartphones destroyed the young generation? Born after 1995, the youth of today, “iGen”, are the first generation to spend their entire childhood in the age of the smartphone. Adolescents are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, loneliness and depression, leaving adults wondering about the lasting impact technology has on the lives and careers of young people. With generational divides wider than ever, Twenge bridges the gap and brings the first written work on understanding the cultural differences of today’s teens through the most recent data, research and analysis.
