Millennials And Gen Z'ers, What Do You Want Your Boomer Parents To Know?

This conversation is long overdue.

Every generation has its differences, and it's no secret that Gen Z'ers and millennials often disagree with baby boomers when it comes to their perspectives on life.

But despite these differences, we can always have a healthy dialogue to create more understanding. So, millennials and Gen Z'ers, what are things you want baby boomer parents to know?

Maybe getting their unsolicited advice when it comes to things like dating, jobs, and money is actually a pet peeve of yours — and you want to speak out on why certain advice is unhelpful or outdated.

Perhaps you think it's time for more of the older generation to recognize problematic norms that existed in their generation and *still* exist today — like sexism or toxic masculinity.

And maybe you feel like Gen Z'ers and millennials have done well with speaking on issues that were once taboo, like mental health struggles, and you wish your parents were more open-minded when it comes to these conversations.
