Today In The Morning Zone: Gen Y Not Slackers, Just Slow Starters
It’s Kids At Risk Day in The Morning Zone, and starting at 7:07AM MST, our all-star panel will explore new information published on Live Science.com that shows that, “Generation Y is often thought of as a slacker group of young adults who have failed to launch, delaying real careers and families until later in life. But new research suggests their heavy dependence on Mom and Dad might ultimately prepare them to be successful adults. Specifically, the study found this generation of “emerging adults” turns to parental support in times of difficultly and as a way to advance their careers in a job market geared toward the highly educated, though most are weaned from such support by their early 30s.” (See details at http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20110324/sc_livescience/genynotslackersjustslowstarters )
At 8:07, Marvin Nash from The Nash Foundation joins us in our School Bullying Segment and we’ll discuss information in the latest McGrath Training Systems Newsletter that reveals the real motivation behind LCSD#1 utilizing the system to develop counter bullying programs may be motivated more by “Risk Management” than by an agenda to help students.
