Leave it to one of the wokest generations ever to launch a rather insane parenting scheme, courtesy of the public institutes of “education” that effectively enable them to do whatever they want.
And by “parenting,” what the millennials really mean is having their parents apparently raise their children forthem.
Or, more accurately, watch the children whenever fledgling millennials opt to dilly dally on social media and rage over their largely privileged lives.
After all, most millennials didn’t grow up during the Cold War, and they clearly have no concept of a world without “safe spaces.”
Little wonder that they apparently think the world, as well as parenting, should be handed to them on a silver platter.
Just consider the rather hilarious commentary from Leslie Dobson, a Los Angeles psychologist who raged to Business Insider about “Boomer” parents apparently not doing enough to raise their grandchildren.
“It is a really common struggle … You have children, and it feels even more like an abandonment that they’ve chosen their life over meeting their grandchildren and building these relationships,” Leslie Dobson informed Business Insider.
Wow. Just wow.
Heaven forbid that grandparents actually choose to enjoy some respite after a lifetime of raising entitled brats!
On top of that, the grandparents are literally only used by millennials to watch their kids while they go travel and cavort on social media as if they don’t have a care in the world.
Millennials are most definitely not taking parenting advice, that’s for sure, raising even more entitled monsters than they are in the process.
“What I’ve seen in my clients is there’s a huge differentiation in parenting … If you ask a millennial, the boomers are overly harsh and not good at parenting the younger children. And millennials are very aware of what could potentially be traumatizing, what is not gentle parenting,” Dobson continued coolly, demonstrating a remarkably condescending attitude towards the apparently “traumatizing” parenting style of Boomers.
Hint: Having standards and expecting a semblance of a work ethic do not comprise
“traumatizing” parenting styles.
If anything, the “anything goes” mentality, right down to letting children choose their own gender, is precisely what will lead to “trauma” later in life.
Especially when Big Tech effectively raises kids.
According to Daniel Cox, who is the director of Survey Center on American Life, a nonprofit organization, millennials have increasingly turned to Google and various smartphone apps for parental advice.
Because Big Tech always has children’s best interests at heart (sarcasm intended).
“There’s an entire billion-dollar industry that has developed in providing knowledge and equipping parents with knowledge and information about best practices and that kind of thing,” Cox mused.
Dobson, the LA psychologist, apparently concurs with Cox, hilariously claiming that millennials are “woke” in her anti-Boomer argument.
“[Millennials] have woken up so much more in our timeframe,” Dobson declared, adding that their apparent awareness of all things woke makes them more enlightened “than other generations.”
Yeah, so enlightened that they can’t even raise their own kids … or even keep their own kids’ gender straight, for that matter.
Needless to say, the LA psychologist is greatly displeased with her own father, who dared to retire in a luxury community in Mexico where he apparently receives more respect than he does from his own children.
“He feels like this is the right choice, and it is truly a fit for how he wants to spend the rest of his life,” she raged.
Needless to say, her father had a different approach.
“They’ve all got nannies … We didn’t have a damn nanny. They drive expensive SUVs. I drove a fricking minivan,” Ted remarked in disbelief.
Expensive SUVs probably only possible with the parents’ support in the first place.
Which Ted affirmed.
“I haven’t spent a nickel less on my kids. I just spent some on me,” he added.
As he should, following a lifetime of hard work.
In a separate Business Insider report, Cyrus Bamji, Chief Communications Officer for Alliance for Lifetime Income, former VP at AARP, noted that Ted’s situation is hardly unique: Multiple millennials have been supported financially by their parents.
“The bottom line is that Americans are putting their adult kids’ financial needs ahead of their own, and putting themselves in the risky position of running out of money in retirement themselves … Unfortunately, it’s not a pretty picture for many older Americans, especially those that are about to retire,” Bamji brayed.
Especially when millennials demand endless free childcare in addition to the financial support they already receive from their parents.
Biden’s America …
