Never before have entrepreneurs taken their jobs more serious, been willing to sacrifice as much, or taken as many risks as now. I’m talking about Millennial’s parenting style.
We want more for and of our children, then any other generation. Grammar preschool leads to stronger educational foundation, music lessons by the time they can go potty by them selves, college funds, tutors in first grade, etc. Overly ambitious parent is today defined as caring and giving a damn. The world is a much different place, then when we were their age and because of that, our approach to life has aligned with the changes made to our societies.
Parenting has never been more challenging, especially in the wake of the internet. How we teach our kids to protect them selves from potential predators alone, is enough to give a person with “old world” views a migraine.
How do you do it all? Millennial mom-ing, running a business, carpooling, meal planning, date night, social life, soccer practice, parent teacher sessions, etc. I don’t know about you, but I live in the 21 century and that comes with a whole lot of awesome gadgets and tools, that makes my life both easier and fun.
We have had the Amazon Echo since 2016, before my girls could even say Alexa. The journey of having an AI as a personal assistant and seeing little children interact with it, has been more then I could imagine. I use Alexa for anything and everything, from setting kitchen timers, turning on/off lights, TV, arming the house, playing games, shopping list, reminders, listening to music and so much more. To say that it has been a game changer, is an understatement!
Mom-ing is hard, but it doesn’t have to be if you keep up with the newest developments that helps you achieve small wins. You can do it all, you just need an AI sometimes and as for me, I never leave the house without Alexa!
