A new report sheds interesting light on children in intergenerational poverty and their families.
Here are the key findings:
- Most IGP Parents and Teens see nothing wrong with their current situation and IGP Teens actually rate their lives better than the average American Teen showing the impact of establishing a baseline with children and teens.
- Teenage years can be isolating regardless of socioeconomic status but a push must be made to encourage IGP Teens to gain a wider worldview.
- Self-Sufficiency from government is not highly valued.
- Mentors are seen as important, yet many parents don’t believe their Teens have mentors.
