Gen X is the Bridge between the Boomers and the Y’s
Generation X (those born 1965-1979) were raised to operate independently. Women were leaving the homemaker role behind, and heading off to work. The working mom in the 70’s had no daycare or nannies to watch over her children. Many Gen X preteens/teens were now in charge! Boomers dubbed them the “latch key kids”- with no parents hovering over them Gen X became independent. They developed traits of resilience , creativity, and adaptability. So, they don’t want you or anyone micromanaging them. They were raised to operate independently.
