Every day, at home, at work, at play and at school, we are all forced to confront generational wars. The rules for living in families and raising children have changed dramatically in the last decade. Families are shrinking, parents are having children later in life and adolescence now stretches for twenty years with young people just not leaving home. In fact, such are the generational changes that some parents now leave home before their kids. The world is increasingly crowded as an alphabet soup of generations exists side by side in workplaces, within the community and within families. With the traditional three score and ten years stretching to four score and more there are currently five generations coexisting- the silent generation, babyboomers, Generations, X, Y and Z. So how do Gen Xer's raise their children? Are Gen Y's just Babyboomers recycled or are they defined by the times they live in? Will outsourcing and grandparenting be replaced by surrogate parenting? To understand children and parents today it essential to look at the context in which we live. Michael Grose helps readers understand how each generation thinks and functions and presents ideas to help us live.
