Any Gen Z-ers with Baby Boomer parents or Baby Boomers with Gen Z kids here? ?

The reason I ask is because they say that Generation Z is the children of generation x, and sometimes millennials, but couldn't gen z-ers born from 1995-1999 likely have parents born from 1961-64?

    If a 42 year old mother had a baby in 1996/1997, the mother was born in the 1950s and is considered a Baby Boomer. Baby Boomers could be the parents of Gen-X, Millennials, and Gen Z. The same mother could've also been a teen mom or early 20s mom, in the 1970s, and had a Gen-X child.

    You won't find any of those. 

    First of all, "they" say that Gen Z people are the children of Gen Y (also known as "Millennials"), not Gen X.

    But that's not entirely true, either.  The terms "Gen X", "Millennials", and "Gen Z" are not actually offspring of each other.  They are marketing target groups.  The terms themselves have been defined by marketeers beginning in the late 1900s to describe the changes in consumer trends among different groups.  People who were interested in electronic toys, computer games, and cell phones, and who went through a phase of wearing "ironic" t-shirts and porkpie hats were called "Generation X" - even though some of those people were actually the children of the generation who lived through the Great Depression and WWII.  The "Gen X" label was applied because they spent their money on different things than most other Baby Boomers.

    In the same way, it was eventually discovered that people had tired of Facebook, and preferred Twitter - (along with different clothes, different music, different places to live, etc, etc).  Marketeers noted that evolutionary change in the market by labeling those new consumers "Millennials".  It didn't matter whether their parents were born in 1970 or 1960...just as it doesn't matter when the parents of "Gen Z" members were born.  All that matters is what they are interested in spending their money on.

    Political consultants and communications directors routinely make the pitch that they can predict what campaign strategies will attract this "Generation" or that, but so far there does not appear to be any correlation between buying habits and political taste.

    Millennials seem to be very worthless and cowardly.
