9781405149525: Why Youth is Not Wasted on the Young: Immaturity in Human Development

Why Youth is Not Wasted on the Young examines the nature of childhood through an evolutionary lens and argues that childhood is an essential stage of development with its own unique purposes, separate from those of adulthood; a time of growth and discovery that should not be rushed.


  • Written by a renowned developmental psychologist
  • Examines the role that our period of immaturity plays on the social, emotional, and educational needs of today’s children
  • Challenges common perceptions of children as simply “adults in training”

Book Description:

Humans take longer to reach maturity than most other species on earth. We are the "Peter Pans of the Animal Kingdom." In this engaging and insightful look at the nature of childhood, developmental psychologist David Bjorklund applies more than thirty years of research and writing experience to understanding not only why humans have evolved this way, but what role this period of immaturity plays in the social, emotional, and educational needs of today's children. Challenging common perceptions of children as simply "adults in training," Why Youth is Not Wasted on the Young urges readers to re-examine childhood through an evolutionary lens, seeing it as an essential stage of development with its own unique purposes, separate from those of adulthood; a time of growth and discovery that should not be rushed.

About the Author:

David F. Bjorklund is Professor of Psychology at Florida Atlantic University. His publications include Parents Book of Discipline (with Barbara R. Bjorklund, 1999), The Origins of Human Nature: Evolutionary Developmental Psychology (with Anthony D. Pellegrini, 2002), and Children’s Thinking: Cognitive Development and Individual Differences (fourth edition, 2005).
