    Am I a 2000's kid or 2010's kid?

    So, here I am with a slight dilemma. I was wondering whether I am a 2000s kid or a 2010s kid. I was born in January, in the year 2002. I've done a bit of research on this subject on various websites (including PerC), but I still can't place myself in which decade I belong to. I'm obviously Generation Z. My earliest memories were in 2004, although they were quite vague. My first vivid memories were in 2005. I remember a time before smartphones, and I watched reruns of Nickelodeon cartoons from the 90s in 2008-2009. I didn't get a smartphone until I was 12, whereas now you see young kids with iPhones and iPads around age 2. When I was two years old, I still played with toys. I can't relate to kids born in 2004, who are in grade 7, while I can relate to people born in 1998-99. My first game system was a GBA SP, while someone born in 2008 probably would have an iPhone or iTouch as their only game system. I remember Obama being elected as president, which happened when I was 6 years old. I listen to music from the mid to late 2000s. So, people of PerC, am I a 2000s kid or a 2010s kid?

    These posts never die. Depends in what you define as a "kid", if you think "young infant" then 00's, but you're 14 and still considered a kid to most people. It's pretty useless to focus on these things + and you're not only a kid for a decade.

    Well, whatever. I guess there really is no point to these kinds of posts anyway. Just wanted a clearer answer.

    Clearly 2010s.

    You are only 15/16 now.

    There is no way you could have absorbed the culture and politics of the 2000s in any depth - I mean, you weren't even born at the time of 9/11. "2000s kids" form the younger cohort of Gen Y.

    I believe we started to transition to Gen Z culture around 2010-11, and did so completely by 2014.

    OK then. I guess that is a clear enough answer.
    Edit: Still kind of confusing. Some people say that it is the decade you were born(2000-2009)
    Some people say it is the decade you graduate High School(for me, 2020)
    Some people consider there to be hybrids, who spent a (roughly) equal amount of time in each decade.
    Some people also say that it is the decade you spent most your time as a child in(around 3-12 years old)

    Late 00's/Early 10's Transition kid. You don't need to assign just one decade to yourself, it only really works for childhood if you were born in the middle to end of a decade.

    Either your childhood or adolescence will be broken apart across a decade. For example I'm an 00's kid, but a late 00's and 10's teen. And you would just be a 10's teen.

    Only works if you were born in the first two years of the decade.
    Some people say it is the decade you graduate High School(for me, 2020) Obviously your class proves why that doesn't work. For most though, the decade they graduate in will signify their teen decade.

    This works best for me. Though I would typically skew older as culture and events affect an older child more than a younger one. So like in my case, yes I can remember the 90's, but I really wasn't too impacted yet, I couldn't even read.
    Basically it's not that serious. Just pick what you best identify with. But if it's both, that's fine too.

    your name is OtakuNinja... I can finally die happy!

    i'd say you're a 2000's kid

    OK, that makes more sense.
    I personally don't relate well to kids born after 2003, I honestly don't know why (probably something to do with current trends, I'm totally out of the loop with trends). As kids born in 2002 and 2003-2009 are Generation Z, but I can easily relate to early Gen Z and to an extent, late Gen Y. I personally would say that I am a late 2000s to early 2010s kid. So a "hybrid kid" as they call them. I'm definitely a 2010s teen though. Can't argue with that.
