Teen dating leading to sex

According to a huge new study, adolescents in the 2010s were less likely date, drink alcohol, go out without their parents, and have sex than teens in every generation since the 1970s. The research, published in Child Development, says the cause is not kids having more homework, or more extracurricular activities.(They are actually doing less homework and about the same in terms of extracurriculars.) What’s changed is the context in which teens are growing up. They have smaller families, which means more attention and money to spend on each kid.The declines appeared across race, geographic, and socioeconomic lines, and in rural, urban, and suburban areas.

In that model a teenage boy might be thinking more seriously about marriage, and driving a car and working for pay would be important for "establishing mate value based on procurement of resources," the study said.

Her conclusion is ominous: “It’s not an exaggeration to describe i Gen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades.

Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones.” However, in the study itself, the authors note that the trend toward more risk-averse behavior began before internet use among teens took off.

The trends were widespread, appearing across gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, region of the country, and whether the teens were in urban or rural locations, suggesting “a broad cultural shift.” While the causes are unclear, the changes are dramatic.

In 1991, the majority of teens in high school (54%) were having sex.
