Place Hold. Add a Review. Add To List. Do you sometimes wonder how your teen is ever going to survive on his or her own as an adult?
Does your high school junior seem oblivious to the challenges that lie ahead? Does your academically successful nineteen-year-old still expect you to "just take care of" even the most basic life tasks?
Welcome to the stunted world of the Endless Adolescence. Recent studies show that today's teenagers are more anxious and stressed and less independent and motivated to grow up than ever before. Twenty-five is rapidly becoming the new fifteen for a generation suffering from a debilitating "failure to launch. Drawing on their extensive research and practice, Joseph Allen and Claudia Worrell Allen show that most teen problems are not hardwired into teens' brains and hormones but grow instead out of a "Nurture Paradox" in which our efforts to support our teens by shielding them from the growth-spurring rigors and rewards of the adult world have backfired badly.
Shielding them from criticism--constructive or otherwise--will only leave them unequipped to deal with it when they get to the "real world.

Loading Table Of Contents Loading Excerpt Parental nurturing is backfiring, and as a result a generation of teens is growing up less independent, less skilled at common tasks - from doing laundry to choosing college classes - and increasingly unprepared for adulthood, studies show. Even young adults often are highly reliant on their parents; more than 60 percent of year-olds and 30 percent of year olds are still financially supported by their parents.
The Allens say the problem occurs when parents do too much for their teens, effectively stifling their ability to take flight. And often parents try to protect their kids from falling, from facing the failures and disappointments that should naturally come when they test their wings.
But the Allens say teens should be doing more than just doing for themselves; they should also be doing for others, and contributing to the family, whether by doing chores, tutoring a younger sibling or even handing over part of a paycheck during difficult financial times.
