TRANSITIONS - rights of passage in contemporary life:
The ‘Peter Pan generation’ is the name given to a group of 25 to 40-yearolds who exist in a state of extended adolescence, avoiding the trappings of responsibility — marriage, work, children — for as long as possible. We discuss what can give a sense of passing from adolescence to adulthood? What support can young people expect in that other transition stage, from childhood to adolescence?
