Artificial Maturity: Helping Kids Meet the Challenge of Becoming Authentic Adults [HARDCOVER]
Adolescence is expanding in both directions—starting earlier and ending later. Best-selling author and international leadership expert, Tim Elmore, continues the work he started in Generation iY: Secrets to Connecting with Today’s Teens & Young Adults in the Digital Age with a new book aimed at finding solutions to this dilemma.
In Artificial Maturity: Helping Kids Meet the Challenge of Becoming Authentic Adults, Elmore leads the reader to understand what authentic maturity looks like, how it impacts society, and how to create a balanced environment that enables children to lead themselves well and influence others in a positive way.
– 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.

“I have LOVED this book! It is exactly the kind of pro-active instruction I’ve been looking for as we guide our pre-teen into adolescence and adulthood. I particularly appreciated that it didn’t make us feel guilty for what we haven’t done right. Instead, it inspired and motivated us to look toward a bright future of our emerging leaders. Thanks Growing Leaders, for growing parents, too.”
