Millennial Parents on the Horizon: Exploring the Mindset of Today’s Parenting Generation


Students are coming to campus with unprecedented levels of connection to their families, including new levels of parental involvement. This session presents research on today’s parents and explores their attitudes towards and use of technology, thoughts about their students’ transition to college, and communication with their students. Explore how commonly “bulldozer” behaviors are seen in our sample and consider implications for working with students while encouraging their growth and success in light of their parent’s mindset.
