The End of American Childhood (1:08:14) Dr. Paula S. Fass, currently Professor of the Graduate School and the Margaret Byrne Professor of History Emerita at the University of California at Berkeley, is the author most recently of The End of American Childhood:  A History of Parenting from Life on the Frontier to the Managed Child.  With the concept of adolescence, American parents, especially those in the middle class, used to be able to predict the staging of their children’s maturation. But adolescence soon became a vision of normal development that was applicable to all youth – its bridging character (connecting childhood and adulthood) giving young Americans a structured way to prepare for mating and work. Now, the bridge is sagging at both ends as the innocence of childhood has become more difficult to protect, and adulthood is long delayed. Dr. Fass explains. Have you raised an Entitled Teen?
