  • shrinivas chabbi

    Ur approach is correct. Thats the way to go!

  • Mikirose

    Excellent. Well written and exactly what we need to hear. Thank you for speaking on this. I have worked with children, including my own, over the last 45 yrs. I see this change in some of the children. The arrogance and unteachableness is disturbing especially in the church. May God guide us back to basics and common sense.

  • Jill

    This is so true. Every single word rings true of what we see in schools today. There are glimmers of hope in parents who are beginning to rethink this with some gentle nudging and suggestions. Mistakes are life’s best teachers!

  • Mary Smalley

  • Carolyn Fitzpatrick

    Hi, I was recommended Gen iY from a friend, and just found your blog. I wondered if you’d seen the survey here: It says that twice as many teens think that they will still be financially dependent on parents into their late 20s, but at the same time teens are also 3x less likely to budget their own money now, compared to two years ago.

  • Ann

    Link does not work so I can get the 52 leadership lessons. Is there another way to receive it

  • Speak to Students

    Very good points! Too many adults see the traits of the younger generation and describe them as selfish. But those who are able to see the traits you list as strengths rather than wish for the olden days where kids just “did what they were told”, will do much, much better working with what i have come to believe is an AMAZING generation! Thanks for the artice

  • Emily Everley

    Hello. I signed up, but the link has not arrived (it has been just over 15 minutes; nothing is in spam). Let me know what you think the issue is.

    • Tim Elmore

      Hi Camille, Please email if you have not received it yet.

  • Sonia Batra

    • Tim Elmore

      Hi Sonia, Yes this is a subscription to the blog. It will provide an email each morning Monday through Friday containing the day’s blog post.

  • Kathy Gillett

    I need to be able to “PIN” these great articles

    • Tim Elmore

      That is a great idea. I will share that with our team. Thank you!

  • PrincipalES

    In your Artificial Maturity Interview Part 2 you mention the need to be a adult who can offer support and empathy to generation Y/iY but also be firm (the “velvet covered brick”). As an educational leader in a private institution I’m wondering how educators can get this message across tactfully to today’s parents and how we “get parents on our side” with this approach?

    • Tim Elmore

      Thank you for the question. There is no short or easy solution, but I recommend communicating often, building trust and assuring them of your love for their children. We have to be in this for the long haul, because it doesn’t happen overnight.

  • christina ost

    I am a high school student, I suffer from rejection. Im in counseling but its not helping much. Do you have any ideas how to fix it?

    • Tim Elmore

      Christina—So sorry to hear you are struggling with rejection. I wish I had an easy answer for you, but I don’t. If I were you, I would continue to seek counsel, but also try to find people who are safe to be with, where I don’t worry about rejection when I am with them. I believe each of us was created with unique gifts and for a purpose. Discovering that purpose and those gifts you have will help you as well to deal with life’s struggles. Hope that helps.
