    How is Gen X getting blamed for that?

    Helicopter parenting was just something boomers did because they tend to like micromanaging and assume they’re the smartest ever.

    Pretty much every generation (in America at least) that wasn’t raised by boomers was “free range”.

      Oh. You know what, I get how you would think that. I meant the parents of Gen-X’ers. I’ll update. My apologies.

      Wait, what? I’m late Gen X, was raised by boomers as a free range, ride my bike everywhere latchkey kid, never got helicoptered. All my friends were the same.
