(p.228) Conclusion
Get Out of My Room!

University of Chicago Press

Get Out of My Room! ends with a brief discussion of current trends in teen bedroom culture. Though the differences between contemporary teen bedrooms and the ones that emerged during the turn of the 19th century are significant, teen bedroom culture continues to be shaped by larger socio-economic trends, technological change, and evolving notions on parenting and the parent-child relationship. Ideas on child development and identity formation are still prevalent in discussions of the teen bedroom, even though many of these optimistic assertions are tempered by fears of drug use, sexual experimentation, and mental illness. The contemporary teen bedroom, in sum, continues to be a hotly contested space within the contemporary American home.
