The book is filled with practical steps that adults can take to furnish the experiences kids need to balance their abilities with authentic maturity. * Shows how to identify the problem of artificial maturity in Generation iY and Homelanders * Reveals what to do to help children balance autonomy, responsibility, and information * Includes a down-to-earth model for coaching and guiding youth to true maturity Artificial Maturity gives parents, teachers, and others who work with youth a manual for understanding and practicing the leadership kids so desperately need to mature in a healthy fashion.
