Generation iY: A Review.
The author, Tim Elmore, gives an intriguing insight to this generation of which I'm a parent of. The author gives insight to how we got here. He gives the different generation comparisons and the struggles of the iY Generation.
Tim Elmore doesn't give a doom and gloom message, but rather on of practical insight and ideas to feeding, caring, and empowering the leaders of this generation.
pg. 108 "James Baldwin once penned: 'Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they never failed to imitate them.'"
The author cites the lies we told like: "You can be anything you want." "Everyone needs to go to college"
On pg. 172 the author cites some facts for this Generation:
"Never known the world without the internet"
"Iraq & Afghanistan have always been front page stories."
"Bono and Madonna are aging singers"
The concluding remarks sums up the book: "If you want happiness for a lifetime, help the next generation." pg. 207.
I recommend any parent, youth worker, educator, and church leader to read this book. Helps gives insight and in today's culture. A must for all Youth Ministers.
