How to raise kids who can handle the real world

Today's Generation iY (teens brought up with the Internet) and Homelanders (children born after 9/11) are overexposed to information at an earlier age than ever and paradoxically are underexposed to meaningful relationships and real-life experiences. Artificial Maturity addresses the problem of what to do when parents and teachers mistake children's superficial knowledge for real maturity. The book is filled with practical steps that adults can take to furnish the experiences kids need to balance their abilities with authentic maturity.

  • Shows how to identify the problem of artificial maturity in Generation iY and Homelanders
  • Reveals what to do to help children balance autonomy, responsibility, and information
  • Includes a down-to-earth model for coaching and guiding youth to true maturity

Artificial Maturity gives parents, teachers, and others who work with youth a manual for understanding and practicing the leadership kids so desperately need to mature in a healthy fashion.

Keywords: Parenting, Generation iY, Homelanders, children and information overload, technology and children, too much technology for children, kids over-exposed to information, kids under-exposed to real-life, today’, s immature kids, Growing Leaders, kids becoming authentic adults
