Resilience theory and research on children

Hello Olivia,
I love how you have expounded on this discussion using real-life examples. You have given your personal view of Elmore’s approach to generation iY, agreeing and disagreeing with him simultaneously. I agree with you that Elmore has generalized his view and termed everybody in this generation as overprotected and overserved. But I think he came to this conclusion because most are this way. Only a small percentage of this generation does not fall into the description that Elmore gives. But that does not mean that they do not have one of the traits given by Elmore. Some either are overprotected, overwhelmed, overconnected, or overserved. I also agree that the young ones of this generation are more of what Elmore says. Children born in the 2000s are more protected than those from the 90s ( Masten, 2018). They spend most of their time indoors on video games and less social interactions. As time progress, the more that children fit Elmore’s description. But as you pointed out, this generation needs mentors to keep them on track. The other generations should teach and guide generation iY on overcoming the challenges of adulthood. Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17)
