Twenge I would have and did agree with the thesis of the book that smart phones are really bad for this generation before I read the book But now I want to push back because she doesn't support the thesis and she misuses her data One example Igen ers don't use facebook Then her one study for why social media makes them depressed has only to do with facebook use that's just one small example Then she criticizes them for their obsession with safety

Twenge 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. Sensationalist cherry picked start with the conclusion you want and work back from there crap Whatever university gave this person a PhD as they proudly display on the book cover has some serious explaining to do The author s research methods are spurious and would get her laughed out of any serious academic conference As with her last book about Millennials this author says that the current generation of young people is simply the worst because they value individualism than conformity I love how she gives lip service to the benefits that the rise of individualized dignity has had on America while claiming that it s ultimately a bad thing In a single sentence she dismisses individualism by saying While individualism did lead to increases in euality among women and minorities it has also lead to a decay of social cohesion Yeah because everyone conforming to a set of societal norms grounded in the values of rich white guys is so much better than women getting eual pay and black people getting to say that being picked on by the cops is bad It s almost as if people like the author don t want marginalized groups including young white people economically disadvantaged by the disastrous financial policies of the Baby Boomers to complain about how much bullshit they have to deal with If young folks are unhappy and of course they are it s their fault She comes in with an axe to grind the past was better and now I m gonna prove it to you With science If her conclusions had been reached via legitimate methods I would seriously consider what she had to say but this book is pure naked propaganda dressed up in manipulated statistics and research studies intentionally skewed to produce a desired result Teenagers are the worst because they use cellphones and social media Guess what Older people use social media just as much if not than teenagers and almost everyone regardless of age race gender etc has a smartphone If John McCain can get in trouble for playing online poker during a senate hearing smartphone use not just a teenager problem A life lived online will leave kids unprepared for the real world That s assuming the real world will stay as it is and that the values of older generations will continue into the future Teenagers are drinking less and having less sex and that sa bad thing Because it shows they re not in a hurry to perform the most superficial and indulgent of adult activities They re closer to their parents and better behaved and that salso a bad thing What pisses me off most is that when she does research she constructs the experiment to create a certain outcome and even then her results are not very satisfying It comes across less as her having compelling evidence and that she played the game on the easiest setting and is now proudly boasting about how 133t she is For example she tries to prove that the current generation of teenagers spend less time with their friends that previous ones because the number of teens who answered yes to the uestion do you hang out with your friends every day has dropped slightly in the last ten years What about teens who hang out with their friends ALMOST every day Or a few days a week or just on the weekends The way she phrased the uestion was leading for the subject and misleading for the reader Another thing she tries to prove is that current teenagers are depressed because teenage suicide rates are higher now than they were ten years agobut lower than they were twenty years ago Was there some epidemic of smartphone use in the 1990 s I wasn t aware of Also social media make you depressed because teens who report being depressed also report using social media Right because depressed people never go online to make themselves feel better She actually acknowledges this but dismisses it by saying Yeah but the sharp rise in social media correlates to the sharp rise in teen depression I guess she must have been absent when they covered this during her freshman argumentation class so allow me to say it now CORRELATION DOES NOT EUAL CAUSATION You can say anything causes anything if you simply say but they happened at the same time They used to think ice cream caused polio because polio rates among kids increased during the summer when kids ate lots of ice creamI could go on and on and on I just hope I ve made the case clear that the author of this book did not conduct her research in good faith She did not start out with a uestion driven by curiosity she started with an accusation I like books that try to explain phenomena They can answer uestions like Why did Hitler lose WWII or What effect is America s food infrastructure having on its citizens They can even answer a uestion like How are today s teenagers different from the teenagers of previous generations I wanted to know that That s why I bought this book This book did not answer that uestion It didn t even try to If you re someone who hates the kids these days with their Snapchats and duck face selfies go ahead and have your biases confirmed If you re the parent of a difficult teenager and rather than talk and listen to them and put in the work to build an effective and loving relationship you d rather just blame everything on their smartphone have at it If you care at all about the truth stay far far away from this piece of doctrinal filth and the lying hack who wrote it

Twenge D texting replacing other activities iGen spends less time with their friends in person perhaps why they are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety depression and loneliness But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time how they behave and in their attitudes toward religion sexuality and politics They socialize in completely new ways reject once sacred social taboos and want different things from their lives and careers More than previous generations they are obsessed with safety focused on toleranc. I was a little leery about reading this book I worried it might be just some rant about how kids these days are awful in every way and why my generation is so superior What I hoped to find was a book that would offer insight into the internet generation iGen a book that would let me understand these young people better see where they are coming from After all the world they re growing up in is vastly different to the one I did I m a Gen X er I ve never had children well unless you count my cat which I do and don t spend much time with children and teens Still I can see there are differences and I hoped to read a book that would explain some of these differences show me a bit of their worldThankfully iGen is the latter Jean M Twenge discusses several topics and trends such as political and religious views tolerance towards others time spent in front of a screen and many others She presents graphs and discusses surveys along with interviews she personally had with a number of teens and young adults She talks about their mental health their strengths and weaknesses and how growing up with a smart phone always connected has shaped them into who they are Mostly Ms Twenge remained neutral which pleased me There are some instances where it s hard to be neutral when we learn for instance that depression anxiety and suicide rates amongst young people are on the rise This is most certainly a negative However for the most part Ms Twenge reminds us there are positives as well as negatives in this young generation and doesn t usually come across as judgmental there were a couple of times I sensed she felt negatively about things but she did strive to remain neutral and present things fairly and without a judgmental attitudeI feel I now have a bit better understanding of iGen ers and so I give the book 4 stars There could have been a lot said though I d especially have been interested in seeing the topics discussed cross culturally and feel the book is lacking because it discusses only American youth At least for these young people though I have better understanding and appreciation for their world their world views and their experiences Certainly they have many strengths not just weaknesses Every generation has its positives and its negatives and iGen is no different I hope they will be able to fix some of the problems my and other generations have created and look forward to seeing what all they will accomplish once they are able to set out into the world

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
