NPR on the “child-man” phenomenon

NPR: Young Men Stuck in Adolescent-Adult Limbo

It wasn’t long ago, Hymowitz argues, that the average man in his mid-20s had achieved many of life’s major milestones — he had a job, a marriage, perhaps even kids and a house.

Today’s mid-20something male “lingers happily,” Hymowitz writes, “in a new hybrid state of semi-hormonal adolescence and responsible self-reliance.”

Social scientists are struggling to define this new phase of life — “emerging adulthood” and “delayed adolescence” are two identifiers. Hymowitz has selected the term “child-man.”
