The defining decade of adulthood

Message  MurielB le Mer 15 Mai - 8:04

Hi everyone
Nowadays it is very interesting to note that young people settle down much later in life. Work, marriage and kids arrive later and the "twentysomething" want to investigate all sorts of possibilities before setting down. Human life used to be divided into 3 parts Childhood, teenage years, adulthood. A fourth part between teenage years and adulhood is appearing, a most important and determining part.

Our "thirty-is-the-new-twenty" culture tells us the twentysomething years don't matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood.

Drawing from a decade of work with hundreds of twentysomething clients and students, THE DEFINING DECADE weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings themselves. The result is a provocative read that provides the tools necessary to make the most of your twenties, and shows us how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood-if we use the time wisely.

THE DEFINING DECADE is a smart, compassionate and constructive book about the years we cannot afford to miss.
Please hear out what Dr Meg Jay says, it is most interesting.
