Praise

“Adolescents are actually two people in one—a regressed child and an emergent adult.  For too long parents and experts alike have concentrated on the former to the detriment of the latter.  Thankfully, the Allens have refocused attention back to what matters most for teenagers today—the emergent adult they are striving to become.  This book is simultaneously a wake up call and a breath of fresh air for parents.  A delightful read that quickly gives one a more hopeful perspective on any teenager.”—Mike Riera, Ph.D., author of Field Guide to the American Teenager and Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers


“This superb and timely book describes a very real and troubling problem while treating teens and parents with empathy and respect. The authors demolish several widely accepted myths about adolescents and offer practical strategies to help young people become productive, responsible, and caring adults.”— Jean Kilbourne, Ed.D., co- author, So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids

“I hear often from parents whose teenagers are disengaged or withdrawn. They have a hard time caring what other kids think, or what society expects of them. They’re having a hard time playing the game of resume-building for a far-off future. Now I have the perfect book to recommend: Escaping the Endless Adolescence.”—Newsweek.com

“Psychologists Allen and Allen begin their important and far-reaching work by asking when 25 became the new 15. Why, in other words, are more and more young people unable to launch successfully into adulthood, returning home after college and becoming known as the “boomerang generation”?… They persuasively argue for a greater role for adolescents in adult society, one with more responsibility and exposure to adulthood. An outstanding contribution to the literature.”—Library Journal
