About Young Americans

Young Americans is a blog about American kids and families, especially about the cultural experiences, pressures and fashions which affect them. Families are always subject to new information, new trends, new situations which make the whole thing seem too hard.  Young Americans is a blog about helping people understand, and, often, ignore, the new new thing in favor of the old old thing: self-knowledge and calm conviction in the face of countervailing winds.
