iGen: Why Today's Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood--and What That Means for the Rest of Us

Jean M. Twenge


Have you noticed that many teens today are experts at social media and video gameing, yet they show little desire to get their license, work a summer job, or even hang out with friends in person? The teenage years look very different from those in previous decades, which can be both positive and negative. In her book, Jean M. Twenge looks at multiple decades of data to uncover trends with modern-day teens and the cultural realities pushing such trends. While the book does not come from a Christian perspective, and we do not agree with all of the underlying worldview assumptions, the information presented is important for us to understand as we seek to faithfully raise disciples in this current cultural context.
