How to use arrested development in a sentence?

  1. Amil Niazi:

    My entire life … the cultural story has always been about our youth. And it’s always been about us as this sort of young disruptive generation that was too spoiled, that had arrested development, that was upending family life, retirement, housing, employment, we’ve grown up seeing ourselves that way, as the young upstarts, as the disruptors, as the people around whom culture, and especially youth culture, are shaped. Of course we’re going to feel fed up about the fact that we’re now middle aged.

  2. Alice Roosevelt Longworth:

    The secret of eternal youth is arrested development.
