Re "Millennials just don't fit boomers' mold" (Forum, May 4):The times are a-changin', but just as generations before, millennials are struggling. Is the same tool that defines our generation the culprit?
Social media is making a huge mark on our generation. The problem with social media is that we don't simply grow out of it. Yes, we get to network with others behind a computer screen, but the lack of face-to-face communication is damaging to the development of communication skills. We are an open book on our social media page, allowing strangers to create a preconceived image without them ever speaking a word to us. We document anything we consider important, and as Morrison said, "We will cringe with shame in our 50s."
We do live in a new generation, but we should consider fusing boomers, Generation X , and millennials' way of communication. This way, we'd all at least understand the mold.
