Millennial Parents Facing More Challenges Than Parenting Style

There are many articles about the differences between millennials and prior generations. This tech savvy group born between 1980 and 2000 are considered high information parents. They are also more knowledgeable about child development and have thousands of bloggers to assist in their decisions. According to an article published at the StarTribune website entitled “Millennials are putting their stamp on parenting,” there are more than 16 million millennial mothers now and the number will increase by more than a million each year. Fathers are also making attempts at being a co-parent, taking on more of the caregiver task.

Many millennials are having financial problems and attempting to pay off student loans. Many are also still using grandparents as caregivers as well. This does give rise to the question of parenting style, old school verses new school. The correct answer for most people is that the correct style of parenting is the one that instill the right values. Parents want their children to be successful, independent thinking, confident and productive members of society with high moral standards. It may take both styles of parenting to get the best outcome.

Some experts and researchers consider parenting as teaching children to be a part of society and helping them to interact with the environment around them. To this end the new school way of parenting involves playing with their children so that the children learn how to properly engage with others and their toys. After a child learns to interact with people and the objects around them, the child will actively play and entertain themselves without a parents participation and will also engage and manipulate objects in new ways. New school parents are also more concerned with a child’s feelings and self esteem, trying to express the word no in more positive ways.

Millennials more than likely grew up with old school parents themselves and know the positive and negative effects of this parenting style. But, as with most things, current and future generations have the job to improve. Teaching a child to have a strong personality as well as the common sense to hold their tongue is a hard job. As time goes by, the millennials of today will see the effect of their decisions in the coming years.
