Shocker for the NY Times: Kids who try to grow up too fast don’t ‘turn out okay’

The New York Times, easily shocked, reports that young teenagers in the cool crowd who tried to grow up too fast by hanging out with older teens, wearing makeup, or drinking beer and stealing condoms had problems later in life.

NotGoodWho knew?

Joseph P. Allen, a psychology professor at the University of Virginia who led a team of researchers that published a study on the subject, said that kids acting “pseudomature” “didn’t turn out O.K.”

The study followed some so-called “cool kids” for ten years, who are now in their early twenties, and found that they often failed in high school and got into drugs, ill-fated intimate relationships, and criminal behavior.
