I have been looking for some better words that more appropriately describe our current state of aging.
In particular for me, the term ‘adult child’, just doesn’t measure up. I am referencing the grown up offspring of parents, who may now have offspring of their own. I do not mean adults who have the intelligence level of a child, or a child who is wise beyond their years. I am looking for a term to describe the large grouping of current baby boomers and their parents, namely the parent-offspring relationship, when the ‘child’ is an adult. Does chidult or adild cut it? I don’t think so.

There must be some other words perhaps from different languages that can be introduced. I am hoping that we can come up with a few different words to ascribe to an adult offspring of an even older adult.

My call to action is to ask you for some new words or different words that we can incorporate. I would love to hear your suggestions, so please send me an email and let’s see what terms we can come up with together.
