Spotlight on Care4U: Setting Teens Up For Success As Adults

A federally funded program in east-central Illinois aims to equip young people for a successful transition into adulthood. The program, called Care4U, is a partnership between Illinois State University in Normal and high schools across Champaign-Urbana. Care4U’s program manager, Kellie Anderson states that “The first semester we work with them on healthy relationship dynamics, using the “Love Notes” curriculum from The Dibble Institute. The second semester we do half workforce readiness and half financial literacy. So they’re really skills that could lead a person to have a more satisfying life as an adult.”

Childhood Family Structure and Wealth Accumulation

Childhood family structure is a commonly studied determinant of child and adult outcomes. Wealth is affected by a wide variety of factors, including human capital formation, family dynamics, and intergenerational transfers. Based on data from the 1979 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, individuals who continuously lived with both biological parents during childhood had more wealth as adults than those who did not. This observation held for all of the different childhood family structures. Additional tests revealed that differences in wealth among the different family structures were not statistically significant.

Adolescent Connectedness and Adult Health Outcomes

According to a new CDC study published in in Pediatrics, youth who feel connected at home and at school were less likely to experience health risk behaviors related to mental health, violence, sexual health, and substance use in adulthood. These findings suggest that increasing both school and family connectedness during adolescence through school, family, and community-based approaches can potentially have a powerful impact on health outcomes later in life.

Teen Depression Treatment Should Extend to Parents’ Marriage

A new study has found that teen depression can affect parents’ marital satisfaction. Parents often seek mental health treatment for a child struggling with depression, but the treatment shouldn’t stop with the depressed teen.  The study found that while depressed teens were involved in active treatment, parents’ marriages and parent-child conflict remained stable, but slightly worsened once the teens’ treatment had finished.

How Educators View Social and Emotional Learning

A RAND analysis drawn from surveys of the nation’s teachers and principals offers some useful insight into how they view “social and emotional learning” SEL. The report drew on two surveys administered to massive, nationally representative samples of more than 28,000 teachers and more than 12,000 principals. The results do suggest that educators seem to have SEL on their minds.

When Social Media Is Really Problematic for Adolescents

A report in JAMA looked at suicide rates among those aged 10 to 19 over the period from 1975 to 2016; boys have traditionally had higher suicide rates, but the gap has narrowed as rates rose among adolescent girls, with the largest percentage increases among girls aged 10 to 14. Children may use interactive media in problematic or dangerous ways because of underlying problems, or they may be particularly vulnerable to what they find on social media.

The Teen Brain: How Schools Can Help Students Manage Emotions and Make Better Decisions

Adolescence tends to be seen by parents—and many teachers—with dread. Teenagers are likelier to engage in risky behaviors and disengage from school. But emerging cognitive and neuroscience research suggests ways schools can help leverage teens’ strengths in this unique developmental period. In symposia at International Mind, Brain, and Education Society research conference here last week, and a consensus report funded by the Alliance for Excellent Education released here, cognitive and neuroscientists called for educators to foster school cultures that better support adolescent development.

How to Test Your Relationship Without Moving In Together

Couples figure that by experiencing what it’s like to live in close proximity and do day-to-day routines together, they can make a better decision about their compatibility and long-term prospects, in order to avoid someday getting a divorce. While the idea makes a great deal of sense in the abstract, numerous research studies have definitively shown that living together before marriage does not reduce a couple’s chances of divorce. Testing your relationship shouldn’t be about placing it under a cynical, hypercritical microscope, but simply being more explorative — seeing if, as a couple, you’re suited for tackling life’s great adventure together.
