Everyone became too irked with the new generation of how they’re destroying almost all established industries with new inventions, affordable alternatives, and breaking the norm by being a digital nomad or living lives in freedom with unschooled kids.
From the articles that you frequently see on Facebook about millennials, telling you how you should live your life by quitting an office-based job and join the booming freelancing industry, giving quirky and unusual ideas to devour an avocado, and tons of shared stories saying how awful the current generation is. Let’s admit it. We REALLY don’t know what happened, and all of a sudden, everyone became enraged with how life should be as a parent, a child, and a citizen.
Here’s the thing. As a millennial mom, who grew up learning how to balance study and play with books and game consoles, the digital natives and early dreamers shouldn’t be discouraged.
Ever heard about Zentennials?
Generation Z, also known as Centennials, Post-Millennials, or iGeneration, are kids born in 2000 or later. Now in their teens or high school, the Gen Z population numbers some 2 billion globally. Gen Z make up roughly 30 percent of the population. Only two countries in the world has a big population of kids in our time, one being the Philippines.
This generation grew up with technology. These kids are digital natives who not only
process information faster, but are also great multi-taskers. They can’t wait to get on with their lives, opting to join the workforce at an earlier age or take the entrepreneurial route to start their own ventures. Though they are global thinkers, they place a very high value on individuality. They want to make their mark on the world, fast!
With their global perspective, the Zentennials have the potential to be one of the best, if not the greatest generation on the planet given the right opportunities to grow and nurture their talents, interests and skills.
