Gen X overlaps with Millennials.
Both terms are used interchangeably.

Me and a friend of mine were talking earlier about this subject due to a lot of the things we are seeing TV lately with the protesting/riots etc happening here in America. Now keep in mind, i'm not painting Millennials with a broad brush here, but this last generation is awful in a lot of peoples eyes and I am not alone in thinking this. Millennials are called Snowflakes by many. The Instant Gratification Generation by some. Participation Trophies came to light because of Millennials. Safe Spaces became a thing due to Millennials too. Millennials feel like they are always entitled to something.
I have noticed a phenomena with Gen X you didn't see much in prior Generations. Gen X parents tend to push their kids on THEIR parents (kids grandparents) a lot more then other generations did. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe Millennials are the most coddled generation ever due to that. You hear so many stories of grandparents raising their grandchildren from the 1990s all the way up until now. Its common. More common then some realize.
So what are your thoughts on Millennials? Did Generation X fail as parents? What went wrong?

I think the blame for the entitlement generation lies in a combination of the indoctrination within the public school system (from kindergarten through college) and parents who are not staying involved with the education of their children enough to undo the indoctrination.
