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 Download Ô 8 A highly readable and entertaining first look at how today’s members of iGen the children teens and young adults born in the mid 1990s and later are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors and from any other generation from the renowned psychologist and author of Generation MeWith generational divides wider than ever parents educators and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults Born in the mid 1990s to the mid 2000s and later iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone With social media an. If you are reading this review according to the cornucopia of research offered in this book you are unlikely to be an iGen er By 2015 one out of three high school seniors admitted they had not read any books for pleasure in the past year three times as many as in 1976 While Professor Twenge cautions us not to evaluate some of her findings as good or bad this for me is surely a bit sad As a sexagenarian father of two daughters aged 14 and 16 I desperately needed and wanted to read this book And I wasn t disappointed It is well written and provides a wealth of information and insight Much of it I found reinforced my own observations of my daughters In some cases that allowed me to breathe a sigh of relief At the very least their habits that are the most different from my own at their age are not uniue to themTwenge is careful up front to articulate the limitations of this type of statistical analysis Because the survey samples are nationally representative they represent American young people as whole not just an isolated group That larger group the iGen ers are defined as those born from 1995 to 2012 a group of 74 million Americans that currently account for 24% of the populationOne of the things I normally find limiting in this kind of big data statistical analysis is that it chronicles attributes But if a picture is worth a thousand words a behavior is worth ten thousand pictures and Professor Twenge clearly appreciates that She doesn t just present the data she probes itA few random thoughts occurred to me as I read itI came of age at the height of the Vietnam War When I was reuired to register with Selective Service the draft was still in place and college deferments for good reason had been eliminated I vividly recall standing in my high school cafeteria at the age of 17 listening to the statewide announcement of our lottery draft numbers The numbers were drawn by birth date and the official reading the numbers started the broadcast noting that the first 123 numbers drawn were almost certain to be drafted the second 123 numbers may or may not be depending on need and the last 119 could rest easier My birthday was drawn 124th The birthday of my friend who happened to be standing near to me was drawn 3rd I offer that only to suggest that there are certain historical events that help to define individuals if not a generation The risk of being sent to fight in the jungle of Southeast Asia was one for me That s not to say that iGen ers have not endured such historic events It s just to remind us that they existThe other observation that I had which isn t directly explored in the book is the change not just in how we live but where we live I walked to school on my own starting in the fourth grade road my bicycle everywhere and spent nearly all of my waking hours with friends with no adult supervision People didn t live in sub divisions so much in those days We lived in economically diverse neighborhoods Urban sprawl and the socio economic homogeneity of the suburban subdivision have both empowered and demanded certain changes in how our children liveMy final observation has to do with the individualistic versus collective social norm Professor Twenge writes cultural individualism is connected to slower developmental speeds across both countries and time Around the world young adults grow up slowly in individualistic countries than collectivist ones My family lived in China for nine years For my daughters it was during the period from age 5 until age 14 on average China has a collective culture in the extreme and it was my observation that the children matured very slowly at least compared to my personal experience as a Boomer I found out from this book that this is a global development Because of the collectivist culture however my wife and I were very lenient with the independence we allowed out daughters At a restaurant for example we never hesitated to let the children go off and play on their own out of our sight A children s play area is offered at virtually every restaurant Violent crime and attacks on children are rare in China but importantly we knew that everyone else at the restaurant including the staff would keep a close eye on the safety of the children It s just part of the collectivist mentality They all felt responsible My point being that I m not sure the individualistic versus collectivist dimension isn t a bit counter intuitive when you get to the social extremesThe study does reinforce the far reaching impact of technology It comes with a lot of baggage Social media is not social at all It s entertainment And for the most part it s not authentic Selfies for example are always staged Reminded me of The Jetsons when they would always hold a mask of perfection in front of their face when talking on the video phoneIn many ways I consider this book to be a launching pad rather than a conclusion Professor Twenge has done a great job of starting the conversation But it needs to continue What is it about technology that has cast our children in this way Why do they think and behave the way they do Twenge has started that conversation in many areas And what as parents and members of the larger community can we do to reinforce the good things eg our children are safer and attack the negatives eg suicide rates are upSome of the developments are going to be a little tricky Twenge points out for example that iGen ers are overwhelmingly inclusive In terms of the racism that is haunting our society today that might suggest we just need to wait and the problem will be resolved I don t think so and to her credit Twenge apparently agrees A commitment to inclusion is not enough We must do I also think it will take the village to address the iGen ers overwhelming anxiety about their financial future That is truly a problem for the business community and the government to solve The implied social contract that existed between employer and employee when I started my career disappeared starting in the 80s It isn t coming back but we have to build some form of alternative Technology and social evolution have taken away the safety net of self sufficiency ie the Thoreau model and have left a void in its place It s a void that needs to be filled or bridged perhapsI therefore go beyond the parents of iGen ers and educators in recommending this book We all need to read it because we all have a role to play both for our children our selves and the future of our society

I was introduced to Jean Twenge s iGen thesis in a recent article in The Atlantic and actually thought I d ask my kids their thoughts on it when I found out it was condensed from a new book that friends chose for our couples bookclub I m glad I had the chance to read Ms Twenge s expanded ideas As the mother of kids ages 16 22 and as one who s worked in schools and church with kids in the iGen age range I m in absolute agreement with Jean Twenge s findings and can anecdotally confirm what she s seeing as a data scientist If you want a summary of her findings I highly recommend the article If you have a bit time get the book and skim it focusing on the many graphs that illustrate her points really well If you have time to dig in and study the book is truly worth reading But I must be honest it s so comprehensive that I lost steam as I approached the end I think my highest compliment is that I felt like Ms Twenge approached the topic without bias but was truly examining the data of teens over the decades and then coming to conclusions based on findings instead of using statistics to support her existing beliefs Her research is exhaustive and impressive and along with the statistics she uses individual storiesinterviews to illustrate trends Ms Twenge also has a great resource for personal observation in her psychology class students where she teaches at SDSU As I ve learned about Millennials previously I kept feeling like that didn t uite fit what I saw in my oldest son and his peers but the iGen theory fits them and my younger kids to a T It pulls together what I ve been noticing for some years the effects of technology and specifically smartphones on our children the lack of interest in young adults and teens in growing up adulting the way that kids seem delayed compared to past generations in developmental mileposts the trending away from religion and even personal spirituality and I m especially concerned with the mental health crisis Ms Twenge identifies as brewing generation wide in iGen and I m not sure what I can do about it except just continue to teach my own family to be aware of risks and monitor themselves and ask for help This book is a great resource for parents teachers and anyone who wants to better understand the upcoming generation What makes iGen uniue isn t bad kids these days or good the greatest generation it just IS Understanding what makes this generation tick is key to our combined best future
