Demographic studies show that today, young people are getting married later, having kids later, and taking on other "adult" roles later than in past generations. Diane and her guests talk about the growing study of "emerging adults" — people too old to be called "adolescents," but not quite adults, either.

Guests

  • Jeffrey Arnett Developmental psychologist affiliated with the University of Maryland, and organizer of the Society for Research on Adolescence's Special Interest Group on Emerging Adulthood
  • Alexandra Robbins Co-author of "Quarterlife Crisis: The Unique Challenge of Life in your Twenties" (2001)
