It seems like every other day there's a new article bemoaning the state of millennial parents and their narcissistic children.
Millennials are helicopter parents, we're told, who coddle their kids and give them participation trophies just for showing up. As a result, our children are spoiled brats who expect everyone to cater to their every whim.
But is this really fair? Are millennials really to blame for the rise of the narcissistic child? Or is something else at play here?
Narcissism has been on the rise for years, and it's not just millennials who are to blame. In fact, narcissism has been on the rise since the 1970s. So what's behind this trend?
There are a number of possible explanations.
One is that we live in an increasingly individualistic society, where people are focused on themselves and their own success. With social media, it's easier than ever to compare ourselves to others and feel like we're falling short. This can lead to feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, which can in turn lead to narcissistic behaviors.
Another explanation is that we live in an age of entitlement.
We expect things to be handed to us without having to work for them. This sense of entitlement can manifest itself in narcissistic behaviors as well.
There's no denying that narcissism is on the rise.
But it's important to remember that it's not just millennials who are to blame. Narcissism has been on the rise for years, and there are a number of possible explanations for why this is so. Whatever the reason, though, one thing is clear: narcissistic behavior is becoming more and more common in our society. And that's not necessarily a good thing. Until Next Time!...XOXO 🍁🧡🍂
