Arrested Development



On this week’s episode of #TheFriendZone, we discuss a recent study claiming 24 year olds should still be considered teenagers by law, extending adolescence, due to the many factors contributing to their failure to launch into adulthood. According to the journal, teens are reaching major milestones a lot slower than teens of the past. We explore whether or not society should support such cultural shifts, by examining the factors and sharing stories of our challenges as teens with limited resources.
