Speaker - Jean Twenge, PhD

Media is a powerful tool – a good servant, a bad master. I ask you to join me in taking a risk. On January 13th, 14th 2019 I have invited Jean Twenge, PhD, a professor at California State University San Diego to give some lectures here at St. Juliana. Please take a moment and GOOGLE Jean Twenge, take time to read her recent book; iGen. The “i” stand for Internet Generation. She has a few YouTube videos and TED TALKS on line. Her researched specialty is our youth, how to understand and direct them. On January 13th her audience will be primarily the Confirmation classes, sponsors, and parents, yet all are invited. On January 14th her audience will be YOU and ANYONE YOU invite. Please cast a huge net. Invite your friends at any school – grammar, high school, or college – Catholic or not Catholic. I believe Prof. Twenge to be the best we can hear speak about our youth. Mark the date and invite your family and friends now. Learn how to understand “the kids” - she will be good for Grandparents too! Her other books include Generation Me, The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement, and The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant. I’ve read all but the last one!
