Millennial moms are more likely to say they have lost time and their sense of self because of parenting than their baby boomer counterparts are, according to research. More than 70 percent of millennial moms said the majority of their free time is taken up by their kids’ activities, compared with 47 percent of baby boomer moms. And the term “helicopter parent” might better describe millennial moms than baby boomer moms. Only 39 percent of millennial moms said they usually let their children resolve problems at school or with friends on their own, compared with 61 percent of baby boomer moms.
