The battle between the generations has been raging for awhile now, as Millennials are labeled "lazy and entitled," Boomers are out-of-touch "Karens," and Gen Zers are full of existential dread, frustration, and TikTok dances.

Regardless of whether or not Gen Z approves of Millennials with side parts and skinny jeans, it can be frustrating for everyone when older generations project their own experience in childhood or adolescence onto younger people without acknowledging that the world has since changed.
