The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis--and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In an era of safe spaces, trigger warnings, and an unprecedented election, the country's youth are in crisis. Senator Ben Sasse warns the nation about the existential threat to America's future.

Raised by well-meaning but overprotective parents and coddled by well-meaning but misbegotten government programs, America's youth are ill-equipped to survive in our highly-competitive global economy.

Many of the coming-of-age rituals that have defined the American experience since the Founding: learning the value of working with your hands, leaving home to start a family, becoming economically self-reliant―are being delayed or skipped altogether. The statistics are daunting: 30% of college students drop out after the first year, and only 4 in 10 graduate. One in three 18-to-34 year-olds live with their parents.

From these disparate phenomena: Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse who as president of a Midwestern college observed the trials of this generation up close, sees an existential threat to the American way of life.

In The Vanishing American Adult, Sasse diagnoses the causes of a generation that can't grow up and offers a path for raising children to become active and engaged citizens. He identifies core formative experiences that all young people should pursue: hard work to appreciate the benefits of labor, travel to understand deprivation and want, the power of reading, the importance of nurturing your body―and explains how parents can encourage them.

Our democracy depends on responsible, contributing adults to function properly―without them America falls prey to populist demagogues. A call to arms, The Vanishing American Adult will ignite a much-needed debate about the link between the way we're raising our children and the future of our country.

On The Phone, Always Get Off From Your Phone Be With Your Kids
The New "Distracted Parenting" or when We Look at the Mobile More than Our Children, Do You Too?

The image is repeated more than we believe or what is worse, more than we realize.

Boy or girl in the park and her father or mother observing the smartphone "it's a moment," nothing more "or" I can do both at once "are the most heard phrases but to this the experts are calling it" distracted parenting "or when we look at the mobile more than our children, does this happen to you too?

Squares, parks, shopping malls, some even go walking or driving while they're watching your cell phone. They begin to be called "zombies" to those passers-by who walk without stopping looking at their mobile.

In fact, this behavior has become widespread to such an extent that it has begun to be a danger to users and cities like Stockholm, Antwerp or Brussels, among others, have signaled the routes or areas to walk those adults who consider it more important to give a like than their security when they move.

But the worst thing is that being as we are in general, hyper-connected adults, this is the introduction to the upbringing of our children although it seems that we are not giving or account.

Love Your Kids, Punishment For Your Kids Should Be Considerate
Why Make Your Child Believe that You No Longer Want Him is an Inadequate Punishment

When a child has a poor behavior that shames us because we are responsible for his education and that makes us feel bad because he stops respecting others, we begin to think about what is the measure that we should take to prevent him from continuing and letting him know that this behavior is unacceptable.

No one is perfect, but the extent of making a child believe that we withdraw our love, that we no longer want him, that we will only love him if he behaves as we expect him is very dangerous: a father thought that leaving alone in the mountain his 7-year-old son was a good idea to punish him and has been missing for days.





I just wanted to scare him.

It happened in a forest on a mountain in northern Japan, as we read in the Free Press. On one of the roads, the parents stopped their car and made the child go down as a reprimand for having behaved badly.

Apparently, the boy had been throwing stones at other cars and even people as they passed the day by a river, and as a corrective measure chose to give him a little scare.

About five o'clock last Saturday, they left him alone on the road to try to teach him a little discipline. Five minutes later, on his return, not only was he no longer where he was left, but incapable of finding him.

The Things You Should Not Say, Do Not Say These Things To The Couple Who Expecting Their Third Child
The Things that Should NOT be Said to a Couple who Waiting for their Third Child

Since I am a father, I have always generated a lot of curiosity the issue of the number of socially accepted children, and at least in Spain, I realized that what society sees best is that you have two children, a boy, and a girl: the couple.

Not having children is not very well seen; To have one is to have fulfilled, but people tend to treat you as selfish, for not giving a little brother to your son (as if the second children were a gift to the first); Having two is great if they are of different sex, and not bad if they are of the same sex; And having three is already playing with fire, because you expose yourself to people telling you what you think about it (and more than three is already a madhouse).

Well, they always tell you what they think about everything ... that people get into everything, but nobody has given them a candle at the funeral. But when you wait for the third, they stay at ease. They get the best of themselves. So today we are going to explain about the things that should not be said to a couple who are waiting for their third child.

1. Another? I couldn't!

You are saying that you are going to have a third child, and yes, some give you congratulations, but many are quick to put yourself in your place and face horror, terror, misunderstanding or surprise.

And then they say something like that you are foolish and what you thought when you had relationships as if you were two teenagers of 14 years who just saw the positive in the pregnancy test.

Okay, they don't tell you that exactly, but it's what comes out of "How brave you are," "Crazy or Me," "I Get Something," "If I know, abortion," or "I could not agree with three ... my mother."

Of Being Parents, Have You Ever Thought Of Why You Become A Parent?
Have You Ever Thought if You Freely Chose to be a Father or a Mother, and Why?

Motherhood and parenthood should be a free choice of adults, and it seems that it is not always as free even if it does not seem so.

And is that, on numerous occasions, have you not asked if we choose to be parents?

From economic precariousness to the crisis in which we live, there are reasons for all tastes to decide precisely that it is not the time to be a parent. Above all, because of being, on many occasions takes us out of the economic system, the social system, the labor system, especially US mothers.

Having children is not a priority for the capitalist economic system in which we live and many are the young people who refuse to be mothers or fathers in the near or far future even in view of the perspective that is posed to them and it is not because they are selfish or frivolous, it's because change is important, very important.

To Make Your Children Happy, To Avoid Jealousy Between Siblings
How to Raise Children to Grow up Happy and not Feel Jealous of their Siblings

When a couple gives birth to a baby, their first baby, it takes him into account, exclusively, because there is no one else. If he spends his time and decides to have another baby, a second child, the brother of the first, then start to think about what will happen, if you want him the same as the major (to this and we answered in his day: Love is not divided, multiplies), if the elder will accept the arrival of a brother and if he starts to show jealous.
