Peter Pan Syndrome

"I don’t want to grow up!" claims J.M. Barrie’s popular character from Neverland. Peter Pan never ages and acts with carelessness and fearlessly cocky behaviors.

The Peter Pan Syndrome (also known as Puer aeternus which is Latin for 'eternal boy') refers to younger generations' perceived unwillingness to grow up and their corresponding alleged immature behaviours. Sufferers of Peter Pan Syndrome are adults who are generally socially immature.
This syndrome is said to be most prevalent in the generation born in the late 1980s and 1990s where the development of a sense of responsibility allegedly does not occur nearly as early as it used to. Possibly contributing factors might include over-protectiveness of modern parents, rising costs of living, and increased difficulty in finding satisfactory partners.
