Key Themes in Teens (3 of 3)

This is post 3 of 3 of a blog series where I'm sharing Key Themes of Today's Teenager. Go here for part one and here for part two.

The final key theme you'll find among today's students is what TruResearch calls "VIPremium."

We live in a world where you can easily broadcast yourself via the internet. In seconds someone on the other side of the world can connect with you. Students today believe that VIP status is within reach. In fact, 1 in 5 teenagers think they can be famous! Sure, it may be 15 minutes of fame... but its achievable. With tools like YouTube, 12seconds and other broadcast mediums, the internet is the grand stage and teenagers are headlining.

Go here for part one and here for part two.

    As a parent, all of this is a wee bit scary for the sake of our kids.
    We strive to help them grow and mature and learn how to navigate life's crud...
    and just when you think you've laid pretty good foundation your teen comes out with some off-the-wall view that knocks you to your knees (to pray!)

    Does this TruResearch group have anything to say about the dangers these views pose for our kids?

    @Joy - The research when presented to me was a little more detailed [I basically summarized here] but the implications vary I think. I'd be glad to chat with you off-blog.
