Forced Adolescence

Instead of having a childhood, children are becoming 'teens' faster than ever

Implications - While the concept of childhood is something that has been created, it has, regardless, become a mainstay practice in Western culture for a child to experience a period of playful innocence. As the economic push for teens to become adults sooner than ever continues, the practice of pushing generations into the next phase prematurely is spreading to toddlers who are being targeted with products that simulate the events of adolescence. This shift of younger generations expected to mature beyond their years is helping to support the highly profitable "tween" market.
