It’s not your imagination. Millions of young adults today behave like children. Stuck in a permanent adolescence, they throw temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want, blame everyone but themselves for their failures, and refuse to take responsibility for their lives.
We used to write off their behavior as a “phase.” But that phase doesn’t look like it’s ending anytime soon. And these grown children are pouring out of the glorified day care known as college and entering the corporate world full of infantile demands and expectations.
A former university president, Dr. Everett Piper knows a thing or two about the ideas that motivate today’s youth. Having experienced the snowflake mob’s rage himself, he understands the threat that these young people pose to the rest of society. Grow Up! is his contrarian blueprint for a successful adult life.
With bracing candor, Dr. Piper shares:
• How ideologues disguised as teachers arrested the development of entire generations
• The dangerous ideas in which popular culture and the education system marinate young people for years
• Simple lessons for becoming a thinking, mature citizen
• The qualities that made this country great and how to reclaim them
Filled with wisdom and learning, Grow Up! is the antidote to the poison that we consume every day—a powerful corrective that shows readers how to live in truth and freedom.
