Modern Teens Are Less Engaged in Sex, Driving, Drinking, and Dating Activities
According to a study, published in the journal Child Development, the percentage of teens in the US who have a driver license, who have tried alcohol, who date and who work for pay has significantly reduced since 1976.
Though more than half of teens still engaged in these activities, but the study says that the majorities reduced considerably. For example, between 1976 and 1979, 86% of high school students had gone on date, and between 2010 and 2015 only 63% of students had. During the same period that amount who had ever earned money dropped from 76 to 55%, and the amount of those who had tried alcohol decreased from 93% to 67%.
Jean Twenge, lead author of the study, says: “People say, 'Oh, it's because teenagers are more responsible, or lazier, or more boring,' but they're missing the larger trend. Rather kids may be less interested in activities such as dating, driving or getting jobs because in today's society, they no longer need to.”
