From multiple social media accounts to online shopping, Millennial moms have made a large impact on modern parenting by being more technologically engaged, more aware of their options and of course, more vocal about their choices than past generations. To put it simply, we get it: we know just how important it is to serve our children a healthy diet everyday. We interact and exchange information on social media. We have access to more knowledge and resources and we don’t waste our time with it.
Now, that’s not to say that we’ve become the best generation of moms out there. Surely, we make the same kind of mistakes our moms and grandmothers made before us. But as Millennial Moms, we are making motherhood work for our generation – both in and outside of the home.
Here are 9 ways Millennial Moms are making motherhood work
1. Organic Lifestyle
Whether it be buying organic, making GMO-free, all-natural, homemade foods for our kids or sharing easy, healthy recipes across our social platforms, Millennial moms are making a name for themselves in the way of healthy eating. Compared to past generations, we want to live healthy and be more healthy not only for the sake of our children, but for ourselves, too.
2. Age Is Nothing But A Number
Simply put, Millennial moms are more confident in their parenting abilities. It doesn’t matter if you’re 21, 41, or heck even 51, Millennial mothers know how important it is to work together as a tribe. We want to be there to help you, work with you, or heck even reach out to give you a tissue when you’re toddler has a snotty nose. Millennial moms know just how important our support system is and that age is nothing but a number. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been doing this for two years or 20 years, we’ve got your back.
3. We Work From Home & the Office
Millennial moms are also more willing than previous generations to contribute to their household incomes because in today’s society, there “seems to be a little more flexibility, a little more understanding, a little less animosity toward mothers who work outside the home.”
Plus, more of us work from home. We know how important it is to have flexibly working hours in order to juggle that all important work and life balance. With the help of technology, we work from our home offices, we respond to emails when we’re breastfeeding and at the end of the day we get the job done. And by that, we mean several jobs done at once – we close the all-important contract, we clean the dishes, we help with our kid’s solar system project and we volunteer at school all within a 24 hour timespan.
