They say the children are our future. And my generation, Millennials, are no longer the children. There’s a new children in town, and they’re called Gen Z. Or Zennials. Or…royally screwed because the world is leaving them nothing. Anyway, these kids are coming into their own now, and they’ve got a lot of questions and concerns about us old folk.
Here are 12 questions from Gen Z to Gen M, and my best attempt at answering them.
