My 3-year-old likes to snapchat our dance parties. It's my fault, really. I am a brand new snapper, and I have been a little obsessed. I started showing her my snaps after I post them and she normally wants to watch them at least five times before she gets bored and runs off to play. Now, when we're cutting a rug to "All About That Bass," she yells, "Let's make a video of me dancing!"
Watching my daughter interact with technology has had me thinking about how us millennials are much different parents than every generation of parents before us. We grew up with technology, and some of us don't even remember a time before the Internet was a thing. The majority of us are hyperconnected, which means our kids often are, too. Now, 1 in 5 moms were born sometime between the 1980s and the 2000s, meaning roughly one-fifth of the kids out there are offspring of millennial parenting. Here's how you know you've got a kid of a millennial in your hands.
