Just when you think, as parents, you've got it all figured out, that you know what you're doing and what to do, then you hear about something new: Generation Z. Zentennials. You start to wonder and ask: Who are they? Am I ready for them?
Who are they?
Generation Z, also known as Centennials, Post-Millenials, or iGeneration, are kids born in 2000 or later. Now in their teens or high school, the Gen Z population numbers some 2 billion globally. Gen Z make up roughly 30 percent of the population. Only two countries in the world has a big population of kids in our time, one being the Philippines.
This generation grew up with technology. These kids are digital natives who not only process information faster, but are also great multi-taskers. They can't wait to get on with their lives, opting to join the workforce at an earlier age or take the entrepreneurial route to start their own ventures. Though they are global thinkers, they place a very high value on individuality. They want to make their mark on the world... now!
With their global perspective, the Zentennials have the potential to be one of the best, if not the greatest generation on the planet given the right opportunities to grow and nurture their talents, interests, and skills.
Are we ready for them?
Our Awesome Planet, the country's premier lifestyle blog, and Mommy Mundo, the country's most active parenting resource and community have teamed up for Raising Gen Z: The Making of the Greatest Generation slated for September 9, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Taguig.
The very first of its kind, Raising Gen Z will gather the country's top experts, advocates, and influencers from the digital, academe, business, and parenting spheres. More than gaining a deeper understanding of Generation Z, it hopes to provide those who are in the position to grow and guide Gen Z'ers with tools to properly hone their innate skills and inclinations.
Why should you attend?
For Parents - if your child was born after the year 2000, he/she is already part of the generation called Gen Z or what we call Zentennials!

Through this conference, you will not only understand what goes on through your child's brain, but you will be equipped with the necessary tools and information to parent them the proper way.
