iGen Understanding & Supporting the Smartphone Generation

Students looking at their iPhones
 
On January 27, 2022, Dr. Jean Twenge, Professor of Psychology and Best-Selling Author, provided ideas for how to help your family find a better balance with technology and be healthier and happier.  Her research has been covered in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, USA Today, U.S. News and World Report, and The Washington Post, and she has been featured on Today, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Fox and Friends, NBC Nightly News, Dateline NBC, and National Public Radio. Today’s kids, teens, and young adults are iGen (born after 1995), the first generation to spend their adolescence with smartphones. iGen’ers are growing up more slowly as adolescents, spending more time online, and spending less time hanging out with their friends in person. They are also spending less time sleeping. Perhaps as a result, they are more likely to experience unhappiness, anxiety, and depression.
