Many older teens are stumped by tasks—changing a tire, replacing a button, or applying for a job—that their parents would have considered commonplace when they were the same age. One explanation is that teens are remaining dependent on parents much longer, often living with and being supported by their parents into their twenties. Another is that increasingly teens and young adults are living in a cohort bubble, with little contact with other adults—a bubble marked by use of technology and social media. Despite this generational divide, the Culture of American Families Survey shows most parents see themselves as heavily invested in parenting and hope that in the long term they will be best friends with their children. It’s as though they’re looking for a return on their investment (Hedgehog Review, Fall).
