TO ALL MILLENNIALS FROM THEIR PARENTS
Millennials — the generation born between the early 1980s and 2000 (so in 2017 between 37 and 17 years old for the youngest)
FROM A PARENT TO MY MILLENNIAL CHILD(REN)
I can see you are growing, becoming an adult now, and maturing,
You listen to me – you listen to me and don’t interrupt me – you listen to what I have to tell you –
Your life is immensely precious to me;
You have to know that!
Imagine that what you LIVE…I LIVE IT too!
What you FEEL… I FEEL IT too!
and not only you but also each one of your brothers – 4 of them, I have 5 sons.
Alexander what you live I live it too – not entirely of course but partially and this affects me,
and it is the same for all of your other siblings,
For your brother Julien,
and it is the same for Matthew,
and the same for Frantz,
and also for Hugo,
All that you live, I live it too – So make everything as smooth as possible –
This is my message to my millennial children!
Many times, it happened to me, that I give advice to my teens, each one of them, any of my now Millennials, going to or getting into some new adventures, or endeavors.
Do they listen?
It seems they never listen!
With our millennial teens or young adults, it seems we talk to them when the issue or the problem has already occurred.
After a while, it is important to teach them the basic:
Lessons learned are experiences distilled from a project that should be actively taken into account in future projects.
And this can apply to any kind of project!
The ‘been there, done that!’ this is something all moms/dads know about when they have teens or Millennials.
Live from our experience is not a choice for our children!
Our children need to experience their own life, going through struggles, and challenges. But as a parent, it is our soul-greatest-celestial job to give them guidance, spiritual advice, like a mentor would do. Give them our Love via our prevention.
The best of my own motto would be ‘lessons learned’!
Lessons learned can make all the difference on future ‘projects’ and help them to succeed, but first, they must be pin-pointed and remembered.
With my 20+year-5Millennial-mom-experience, it becomes clear to me that in any millennial problem-story, there are two major black points; that show up very frequently:
- A misunderstanding between friends or confusion with any other person starts a messy situation, when, in reality, the dispute is always minor in the first place. For instance, as ridiculous as a clash about who smoked my last cigarette – who took my favorite pants or tee-shirt – who played and shut down my electronic-game-console and messed up all my scores. A friend’s argument for being with other friends at a planned time for 2 or 3, and ended up with more. And it grows.
- A habit of taking unnatural or addictive substances to pretend at an enhanced experience and to reach a sort of illusion-world as a way of ‘feeling’ in a particular situation.
Below are my 7-instant problem-solver solutions to disarming, dissolving and distilling a drama situation, and prepare for any future circumstances you may teach your teen.

And also I want to share this beautiful quote with you, as it explains precisely the sense of being a parent:
Quote by Debra Ginsberg (Author of Waiting)
“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did – that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body, and yet, each child represented just that – a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”
