(PIX11) – PIX11’s Kaity Tong talked with Dr. Jean Twenge, author of a new book, “Generation Me.” Twenge is a professor of psychology at San Diego State who’s studied the topic of narcissism in America, and says we are raising a generation of completely self-centered children who are shocked when they don’t do well — on tests or in life.

Twenge believes a parent constantly telling their children that they are special is actually harmful.
