Study claims today's teens are more prudish than ever

A new study found some interesting results about today's American teenager. “The developmental trajectory of adolescence has slowed, with teens growing up more slowly than they used to." Jean Twenge, psychology professor at Sandiego State “In terms of adult activities, 18-year-olds now look like 15-year-olds once did.” The study looked at "adult" activities from national surveys of US teens from 1976 to 2016. The rate of high schoolers having sex dropped 41 percent since 1991, and in 2016, teens were drinking less than they ever have since the 90s. The researchers concluded that the modern day American teen is way too warped up in technology, and they may prefer their smartphones over social interaction with one another.
