What caused the "Helicopter Parent"? A backlash to their childhood experiences? What they were being told my Parenting magazines, articles doctors?

Threshold of violence A change in the threshold for turning to violence. "eye mugging" "disrespect": a verb that is only three years old! 8. Rise of violence in schools 9. Access to weapons A generation without appropriate practiced coping techniques will react with (seemingly) “Disproportionate responses” – this will be a recurring theme. How many years did it take for cell
phones to go from being in the hands of 10%
of college freshmen to almost 100%? 5 years No face to face interaction or
solving conflict. Millenials are
"unpracticed" in solving conflict. Phones = "No decision
making" = Not a good thing! There has been an increase in violence on television,
videogames and movies. This has led to desensitization
of youth. And if parents don't set the moral compass, and if their empathy and coping mechanisms are altereed, you are in trouble.
Media doesn't descind on college campuses after shootings.
Average college student is less empathetic than ten years ago. Texting is a social norm.
You have to tell students
it bothers you!
Millennial relationship to authority
Millennials trust authority. They don’t mind following the rules imposed on them and have a
general respect for authority. You just have to tell them! Millenials were the first generation marketed
to as a consumer. It started in the mid-90's which
coincided with the development of the ATM. These are good partners! They want their kids to
stand up on their own! Gilmores parents disciplined them! So How Do These Students Wish To Learn? Millenial Snap Shot: Special: Children are a priority for adults and for governments as well as marketing firms.
The focus for society in the last decade has been the child. Millennials feel their problems are
society’s problems and are more likely than other generations to trust teachers, government
and police to fix all problems that arise.

Sheltered: Parents have done everything in their power to protect their kids – from locks on
drawers to baby gates, to movie ratings and labels on CDs and videos games to graduated
licensing. The millennials are generally accepting of these limitations and trust authority

Confident On surveys, the millennials report being happy and mostly satisfied with their
lives. Their parents are more affluent than previous generations, and they were not old enough
to live through the recession of the 80’s. A larger proportion of millennials go on to postsecondary
schools than previous generations. Millennials have some to expect good news and
have been encouraged by parents and teachers to believe in themselves. This is a generation
of participation ribbons.

Conventional: Embrace traditional values of home, family life, community, and education.
They get along with their parents and share their values. US homicide, violent crime, abortion,
and teen pregnancy rates all down. Boomer authority figures have the power and resources to
reward those who follow the rules Millennials and Silents: Silents see work as its own reward and value stability. They are detail
oriented. Millennials looking for praise in exchange for work may be disappointed. The rapid
pace of a Millennial’s life and their use of technology may be too much for a stable Silent. A
multitasking Millennial may glance over the details that are so important to a Silent.

Millennials and Boomers: Many Millennials have Boomer parents and research is showing that
Millennials actually like their parents! This may prove positive in the workplace and other
situations. Boomers and Millenials share large numbers and a competence for working in
teams. Boomers are constantly seeking personal gratification while also working long hours.
This may contrast with community oriented civic Millennials who seek balance and meaning
from work.

Millennials and Gen Xers: Although Gen Xers are also parents to Millennials these two groups
share less commonalities. Actually, it is usually the previous generation that shares the least
with the one following it. Millennials being conforming, rule-following achievers may clash with
radical, rule-challenging Gen Xers. What they do share is achievement. Gen Xers have carved
a palce for themselves in the world.

Millennials and other Millennials: Millennials are team players who use technology to stay in
almost constant contact. They may work well together.
