    I am totally Y child... I need to add this about Y generation :

    http://www.konbini.com/fr/inspiratio...-generation-y/



    About the K generation (which you called Z) : http://www.konbini.com/fr/tendances-...on-k-portrait/

    Sorry this is in french but I think their analysis is quite accurate with the work of Strauss and Howe

    "Six Defining Characteristics of Generation Z :

    Cynical.

    While the students I met were fairly happy and well-adjusted, they are not giddy like so many Generation Y kids were in the 90s. They tend to be more realistic not idealistic, seemingly jaded from the tough economy, terrorism and complexities of life.

    Private.

    Perhaps its because they watched their older siblings get in trouble from posting controversial content on social media, but younger teens dont want to be tracked. Apps like Snapchat and Whisper have seen explosive growth in the last few years. In contrast, Facebook has lost 25 percent of this demographic since 2011.

    Entrepreneurial.

    Like Millennials, these students plan to be pioneers, not merely settlers in a career. 72% of current high school students want to start a business. They feel like hackers, not slackers. Since theyre more jaded, they know life is hard and requires work.

    Multi-tasking.

    By almost every measurement so far, these Gen Z kids will take multi-taking to a new level. They prefer to be on 5 screens at once, not 2 screens like Millennials. Get ready to communicate to them while they look around, not into your eyes.

    Hyper-aware.

    Generation Z has communicated enough with marketing researchers and academics to reveal that they experience: 4D Thinking. Because their minds are streaming in so many directions, theyve become post-moderns who are hyperaware of their surroundings.

    Technology-reliant.

    This one wont surprise you. If we thought Millennials were addicted to technology, get ready for more. In surveys, these teens put technology in the same category as air and water. They cannot imagine living without being connected all the time.

    Soare you ready for these kids?"

    https://growingleaders.com/blog/six-...-generation-z/

    Those new kids seem to learn from our Y generation and mistakes still, I wish they could change more things as our sacrificed generation was not for nothing...

    None of them really. Baby Boomers are too naive. Xs are too degenerate. Ys are too full of themselves (and stupid). Zs are too technological and multi-tasking.

    There is no such thing as "too degenerate".
