With young people living with their parents for longer, they appear to be more afraid of growing up than their predecessors. Unfortunately, fear of maturity is associated with negative outcomes including poorer psychological wellbeing.

Job rotations are important too, for fresh learning about the world of business, and to keep them engaged. It’s not all about them learning from us though.
We can learn from children too.
