When Time magazine conducted research into the (then) nine million Millennial parents who were giving birth to nine thousand children a day, they explored generational differences on a variety of issues, from what other people think about how they feed their children to the importance of gender-neutral toys. One of the greatest differences was in how many parents perceived the volume of parenting advice to be "somewhat, very, or extremely overwhelming"—from 43% of Baby Boomers, to 46% of Gen X-ers, to 58% of Millennials. Coupled with the prevalence of performance anxiety that has earned them the nickname "snowplow parents," it is clear that Millennial parents are ripe for help that simplifies concepts without simplifying away complex realities. Enter the "6 needs" paradigm developed by the partners and authors of Made for Connection. The Olricks contend that we need a new model of parenting in the wake of enormous changes across just a few generations. The Olricks propose that we shift gears from "parenting at" our children to "being with them"—a model based on relationship rather than technique. Through the integration of attachment theory with a faith-based paradigm of human relationship needs, and based on clinical research and practice, they have identified six key needs —delight, support, boundaries, protection, comfort, equipping—that form the constellation of what children need for self-regulation and connection as they alternate between the two essential movements of going outward to explore the world and returning inward for refuge. A host of tools and exercises are included in the book to help readers make specific and personalized applications.
