Millennial supermoms are a different breed of human women. Most are raising one to three children while living a life that is drastically different from previous generations. The following are five ways that millennial mothers are redefining what it means to be a parent.

Back to the Basics Kind of Parent
The millennial generation is one of the most eco-friendly
and organic-seeking generations around. This has pushed many millennial mothers
to cook at home and from scratch. It is not strange to find millennial women
learning how to bake bread from scratch with organic materials rather than
purchasing a bread with processed ingredients like high fructose syrup.
Millennials are usually just as interested in healthy foods
as they are into health living, which prompts them to hit the gym on a regular
basis. In fact, one of the most popular exercises that millennials take an
active interest in is yoga; tai-chi is coming in at a close second.
Millennials are not afraid of a challenge and are usually
game for taking more than one job at a time. It is estimated that more than
one-third of all working millennials have a side job. Side jobs could be anything
like driving people around using a ride-share application to entrepreneurial
jobs at home.
Moms of this generation want to grow, which is evident when
one notices the amount of jobs a millennial supermom takes. The hunger to be
better and to increase the chances of success leads many moms to take online
college classes from home or on the go. Keep in mind that this generation is
tech-savvy, making online classes accessible from practically anywhere that
their lives take them. It’s not just associate’s or bachelor’s
degrees that they can get online, though. For example, some are even able
to get their masters in organizational
development or whatever other field that peaks their interest.
The modern woman is not only looking to better herself
through education and by seeking new ways to make money, but she is also a
great marketer. This generation has been brought up on social media, which
means that many of them know how to market themselves and their businesses
well. A woman will use social media platforms or blogs to help further her
career one way or another. This active social media life does prompt today's
woman to try new things, which helps many become successful net-workers.
It is clear to see just how different the millennial
supermom is compared to others. Keep in mind that these mothers are still
finding time to spend with their little ones, too.
