How The Rugrats Taught Millennials
Skills for the Workplace
I’m a 90s kid. I was born in 1989 and part of the later stage millennials (1981-1995). Our age group had a fascinating childhood. We grew up in a world where computers were becoming commonplace in schools and the home, the internet became "a thing," and Nicktoons, TRL, and Clarissa Explains It All were the "must-watch TV." Unlike now, when dozens of streaming services offer millions of hours of on-demand content, 90s kids had shared media experiences. Without Netflix, YouTube, or Hulu to fracture our viewing habits, we watched very similar content. Thinking back on some of those experiences, one group of babies really taught us life skills that translate to the workplace - and no, it’s not the Muppet Babies. It’s Rugrats! Read full post here...
