Generation X: Born 1965-1980
So often dismissed as the slacker generation, Generation X lived through the cold war, MTV culture, and a shifting cultural landscape. They have their feet firmly planted between the technology age and the rotary phone age. Gen X are known for being self-sufficient and not letting the little things bother them.
Unlike their Boomer parents, who famously let their kids stay outside until the streetlights came on, Generation X parents have a tendency to be far more involved with their children's social and educational development.
