    Since I was born in 1964...that would make me a 70s kid (or late 60s/70s kid).

      In response to my original post, I am still wondering whether you think you need to remember the 9/11 2001 terrorist attacks(and Iraq war) to be a true 00s kid.

      I was born in 89 and I don't remember the gulf war and I understand when people say i'm not a true 90s kid because I don't remember the whole decade. Does this apply to any decade? I would argue that 9/11 was the biggest event in terms of 'where were you when it happened' in the 00s. It was the day after my 12th Birthday so I remember it vividly. I remember a kid at my school saying that all muslims were terrorists and my teacher trying to convince him otherwise lol.

            Kids have always been assholes. Especially when they get in to middle school. I think most 7th graders should be beaten daily.

                            If it will make you feel better, I never had a cell phone until just under a year ago.
                            I've sent less than 5 text messages in my lifetime.

                                You got to love it when people make all these claims and don't do proper research. I'll repost what I put in another thread.
                                <br><br>

                                In Spanish, do you see trece-teen or trece-something-else for thirteen? Of course not. Because there is no significant difference between 12 and 13 whatsoever. Twelve is doce in Spanish by the way. The correct term for people out of childhood is "adolescent", not "teenager".
                                <br> <br>
                                "Teenager" may be a cultural term, but it's certainly not a biological term. Studies have shown that people enter puberty around their eleventh birthday on average. I'm not surprised by this information either. When I was eleven, my teacher even referred to us as adolescents and in the previous school year, another teacher assembled boys of the school together for a talk because some people were making fun of "changes in girl's bodies". What I watched at eleven has more similarities to what I watched at fourteen than what I watched at eight.
                                <br><br>
                                Wherever you spend the most time being 4-10 is your decade per rule of majority. Yes, many people will have some childhood either before or after their "main" decade, but if you are going to categorize..
                                <br><br>
                                90s = July 1, 1982 - June 30, 1992
                                00s = July 1, 1992 - June 30, 2002
                                10s = July 1, 2002 - June 30, 2012
                                <br><br>
                                Someone might say "But people born in the 90s don't remember Nirvana" or something like that. Doesn't matter. Where you spend the majority of your childhood is where you are.

                                    That's not how it works. There are people in Africa that still don't use the internet. A true '00s kid would be someone who spent all their time in literal childhood (not infancy or adolescence) in the '00s. Which would be someone born in either 1996, 1997, 1998 or January 1, 1999. Childhood is 4-10 and doesn't include 11 and 12 contrary to belief as explained above, although anyone who turned 7 1/2 in a decade is a child of that decade per rule of majority.

                                      I was born in 1991 and I remember Nirvana :). I think a true 2000's kid would be a someone who spend most of the 2000's as a kid and remembers every major fad of that decade.

                                          Yknow, I really don't mean to keep attacking you, but you keep making all these specious claims with no backup. Who, other than your very own self, defines childhood specifically and solely as ages 4-10?

                                          The term childhood is non-specific and can imply a varying range of years in human development. Developmentally and biologically, it refers to the period between infancy and adulthood. In common terms, childhood is considered to start from birth. Some consider that childhood, as a concept of play and innocence, ends at adolescence. In the legal systems of many countries, there is an age of majority when childhood officially ends and a person legally becomes an adult. The age ranges anywhere from 15 to 21, with 18 being the most common.
