    I see a generational change. I taught my girls that they could do and be what ever they wanted to be. It didn't matter what it was, just do your best. In other words, fly little bird and soar. I have two granddughters, one that I finished raising because of the death of her mother from the age of 16; the other was raised by her mother, my daughter. Both girls were involved in school activities, one voleyball, the other band. The youngest of the two went through covid, coming out the other end, not wanting to leave home, calling her bedroom her dorm room while she attends college on line and in the classroom. The other did not use her degree chossing another field. My daughters both left the state where they were born. Both are very independent women, both Generation X. I  My oldest granddaughter,a millennial, grew up with celephone, internet and social media but still was very involved with classmates etc. The other, a Gen Z believes that education is important but relies more on degital tecnology as a form of interacting more than with people.  From Baby Boomer to Generation Z we have  everything going on in our group of woman, at the same time.
