Every parent, teacher, youth leader, coach and influencer should take a hard look at this study of the next generation. The game plan outlined in Generation iY will leave you motivated and encouraged to impact this unique group. My wish is that all children would be provided a strong foundation so they could grow up to be responsible adults who love who they are, care for and respect others and enjoy what they do. This journey starts with helping children develop good character. I see so many parents starting well with their children, but as they grow, some begin to play defense, rather than offense.

Tim Elmore helps us understand what young people need today—from parents, teachers, coaches and employers. This book will reveal what we must avoid and what we must embrace to enable our children to become little leaders that mature into adult leaders. Tim Elmore masterfully describes the unique traits of Generation Y and offers research-based insight and practical advice in this must-read book for both educators and parents alike.
He has not only drawn an accurate picture, but he has helped us understand why this generation thinks like it does. This is a book for every parent, teacher, employer, youth minister, and church leader in the nation. We must understand the part we have played in shaping the Generation iY. I am thankful for the holistic look that Tim has given us in this book. As a former military officer, substitute teacher, college pastor, Chaplain candidate, Chaplain candidate recruiter, and life coach, I speak from experience when I say this is a must read for all parents, military officers, non-commissioned officers, Chaplains, military recruiters, teachers, life coaches, pastors, and employers especially Chick-fil-A Operators!
Additionally, if you are a hiring manager or business owner, I believe this book will help you select great talent. So often in higher education there is confrontation concerning how my generation functions, learns, receives, and reacts.
Transition to adulthood
We no longer fit the mold of the previous generations and it is really frustrating those who are professors, administrators, coaches, and staff at universities everywhere. Rather than sitting in frustration, I wish that everyone who works with kids, teens, and young adults would pick up this book. This book offers not just the facts which can seem daunting and depressing , but this book also offers hope and direction on how to effectively lead my generation. Generation iY seeks for more than knowledge and lectures- they need mentors and coaches who will walk along side of them and experience life, learning, and maturity.
Not only does the author bring to light the unique challenges that this generation is facing, but he also gives us practical solutions to help remedy these ailments. This is a must read for those of us who work with Millennials! Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
This article investigates whether care-oriented behaviour in adolescence - such as volunteering, school captaincy, or conservation work - is associated with positive development into adulthood. Using data from the Australian Temperament Project ATP , it examines the trajectory of positive development from the early to late twenties, patterns of positive development, and the extent to which adolescent care-orientation predicts these trajectories.
Data is recorded at age , , , and years of age.
The findings suggest that individuals generally have the same trajectory of positive development over time once the baseline level is established, and that involvement in care-oriented behaviour in adolescence predicts baseline levels. These findings highlight how adolescence is an ideal time to promote care-oriented behaviours to improve later positive development.
Alcohol and parenthood: an integrative analysis of the effects of transition to parenthood in three Australasian cohorts. Research has found that young people consume alcohol in increasing amounts through the teenage years and early twenties before decreasing in the late twenties and early thirties.
Adolescent Development Explained
One theory is that the transition to parenthood is responsible for this decline. The findings show that, for most women in their twenties and thirties, parenting an infant was associated with reduced alcohol consumption. However, this reduction changed after 12 months with drinking levels returning close to pre-parenthood levels after five years.
There was little change among men. Overall, the transition to parenthood has no sustained impact on parental alcohol consumption. Loughborough, U. This accounts for almost two thirds of singles in their 20s, with the greatest increase in the last decade among those aged where over half now live with their parents. This report aims to fill a gap in the analysis and understanding of household living standards by considering how such living arrangements affect household costs, and hence the minimum that people require for an acceptable living standard.
It does so as an extension of the Minimum Income Standards research, based on what members of the public in particular types of household consider are the essential goods and services that such a household requires in order to meet material needs and participate in society In deliberating over how these savings might end up being shared between a young single adult and their parents, [focus group participants] concluded that you cannot generalise - because the amount that the young adult contributes to household costs is affected both by the financial circumstances and the attitudes and feelings of those involved.
Cognitive and educational outcomes of maltreated and non-maltreated youth : a birth cohort study. Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry v. There is only limited research available on the impact of child maltreatment on later cognitive, academic, and employment outcomes in adulthood. It compares notified or substantiated abuse or neglect in childhood, reduced verbal intelligence, failure to complete high school education, and lack of engagement in either formal study or employment. The findings highlight the ongoing adverse impacts of child maltreatment in later life.
This fact sheet looks at trends in young people staying at home over the last decade in America. Data is taken from the Current Population Survey from and , and presented in the form of charts. Not all young adults who co-reside with a parent are single, some are cohabiting or married and living with either their own or their partner's parents.
This paper highlights some of the factors that shape young people's opportunities for work and study. It draws on preliminary findings from Wave 11 of the Life Chances Study, a longitudinal study from Victoria on the influences of social, economic and environmental factors on children's lives. The study participants are now 24 years old, and many reported not having satisfactory employment - particularly young men from low-income families.
The findings also highlight the struggle of balancing study, work, and family, and how extended education did not guarantee a job. Parents continue to play a big role in these young people's lives: parents continued to be a vital source of financial support, especially for those from high-income families, whereas young people from low-income families were more likely to be providing financial support to their parents.

Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, it compares type of school attended and economic outcomes at age It finds that type of school attended was not associated with academic achievement or employment status, occupation, or earnings in young adulthood. The findings will help inform the debate about school funding and selection.
Adverse adult consequences of different alcohol use patterns in adolescence : an integrative analysis of data to age 30 years from four Australasian cohorts. This article adds to the evidence on the association of adolescent alcohol use and adverse consequences later in adulthood. It investigates the association between different patterns of drinking - frequent, heavy episodic, and problem drinking - and negative outcomes relating to substance use, antisocial behaviour, sexual risk-taking, accidents, socio-economic functioning, mental health, and partner relationships.
The findings indicate that frequency of drinking plays more of a role than binge drinking does for adverse outcomes, but that this association between drinking and most outcomes was largely due to shared risk factors for adolescent alcohol use and poor psychosocial functioning. The role of trusted adults in young people's social and economic lives. This article explores the role of adults other than parents during young people's transition to adulthood. Such adults include aunts and uncles, parents of peers, family friends, coaches, and people in paid roles such as teachers and youth workers.
The article explores the place of trusted adults in young people's lives, their support and encouragement, characteristics, role modelling, engagement, and practical support.
The article also looks at how the role of these trusted adults varies for disengaged, at risk young people. The findings provide insights into the relationships and supports available to young people. In the new competitive funding environment in the human services sector, many community service organisations are struggling to balance these new priorities with their socially-driven mission and purpose and demonstrate their value in terms of 'value for money.
This paper highlights the 'value add' of smaller community service organisations, with case studies of four non-profit providers who support young people's transition to work. While the value in government-funded services has been predominantly measured in economic terms, the paper aims to capture less tangible variables that constitute value to individuals, local communities, and 'public value'.
