Conversations: Jean Twenge, "iGen"

iGen

Today's youth, born between 1995 and 2012, have never known a world without smartphones and social media. These young people, also known as Generation Z, are glued to the internet, socialize less in person, and suffer from higher rates of anxiety and depression. They are less religious and more open minded than any previous generation. On this edition of Conversations, I talk with Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University, about her book, "iGen - Why Today's Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy - and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood... and What That Means for the Rest of Us"
