You’ve heard us do a lot of stories about millennials over the years. We’ve told you millennials were coddled more as kids, and there is new research that might just back it up.
The new numbers say millennials don't consider themselves to be 'adults' until they are 30, and that they are still calling themselves millennials at 40. Gabrielle Bosche at the Millennial Solution told KTRH unfortunately she's not surprised.
“We have more cultural norms of moving back with our parents. One third of all current graduates will move back in with their parents after getting their four-year degree,” Bosche said.
So yes, they've been coddled by their parents. But Bosche says at some point millennials have to stand on their own two feet.
“The onus is on us rather than continuously pointing the fingers at our parents. We are adults. It’s time for us to take responsibility for our lives,” Bosche explained.
The Center for Generational Kinetics defines millennials as those people born between 1979 and 1995. Those born after '95 are now called 'Generation Z.'
