Whatever Happened to Sleeping Around?

Richard Kew on Youth & Traditionalism

There is always at least one good article in American Demographics for understanding how we might shape the Church’s mission in response to today’s challenges, and with its description of the “retro-styling” of the Millennial Generation, the February 1999 issue was no exception. According to AD, the new world the rising generations are attempting to make is one that is based on more traditional ideals—the question is whether those ideals are just a fad or style or are something deeper, a longing for or an insight into traditional truths we can nurture until they are deeper.

“Generation Y,” the “Millennial Generation,” and “Echo Boomers” are all names given by advertising types to the generation now in elementary, middle, and high schools, and whose first cohort is starting to invade college campuses. While it is a tricky business to generalize about generations, there do seem to be certain characteristics that predominate with certain cohorts.
