Millennial parents say they don’t have the “village” it takes to raise kids. 

Jan 19 2023

Millennial parents say they don’t have the “village” it takes to raise kids. Struggling Millennial parents are taking to TikTok to explain that “the village” mentioned in the common phrase “it takes a village” simply doesn’t exist for them anymore. Under hashtags like #MomsofTikTok, #ItTakesAVillage, and #WheresTheVillage, moms are sharing their difficulties raising kids in isolated environments and struggling to balance a work/parenting schedule. One Millennial mom says she and her husband work most holidays and weekends, and daycare centers in their area aren’t flexible. While her parents are able to take her young children sometimes, they still live over an hour away, forcing them to pay thousands for private, part-time childcare, which is often hard to find—and YPulse data shows that only 12% of Millennial parents say a nanny/babysitter watches their kid(s) on weekdays at their home. More moms are chiming in and saying, “Stop telling us ‘it takes a village to raise a child’…There is no village” as well as “Women were never meant to raise their children completely isolated, which is why a lot of us feel completely alone and also depressed.” (Business Insider)
