IMMATURITY: Is age 25 the new 15? “According to the authors, teens are living in a ‘bubble’ that is undermining their development. They have their room at home, school, the shopping mall etc. but it ‘cuts them off from meaningful roles in the adult world, cuts them off from close day-to-day contact with adults, and it hyperexposes them to peer relationships, which become their primary socializing influences.’”
I made a similar point years ago.
