Fucking millennials.

From The College Fix:

"In the age of safe spaces and trigger warnings comes another new trend to the college repertoire: coloring books. This fall, campuses nationwide are offering coloring books to students to help them de-stress.

At American University on Monday, its counseling center provided coloring sheets in honor of Healthy Campus Week, noting on its Facebook page that adult coloring books “can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.” Conditions cited include obsessive-compulsive, eating, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as anger management and substance abuse issues."

I find masturbation much more effective than coloring books.

Hey! I like to color in my adult coloring books..I am a nurse and yes ma'am...My job stresses me out a lot some times...I am no soft little flower pedal that's for sure....However, I found this little activity to be a very good coping mechanism for the high level of stress I deal with everyday...I also fund my own coloring books and coloring pens..My children also like to color with me as well..

While I was in collage we had a place to de-stress. We called it dorm rooms. Some times we colored, but we would have to draw the image first, other times we would drink beer, still other times we would play statistics based games. But we never colored children's coloring books. Next thing you know they will start giving out smiley face stickers instead of grades and hugs for everyone

This totally suits their childish mentality. But eventually these precious snowflakes have to grow up and quit being pansies. "no coping skills for real life" Correctamundo!

These are kids who were raised like veal by their helicopter parents who raised their kids to be allergic to peanut butter, and with expectations that everyone deserves a trophy at the end of the season -- no coping skills for real life. No one wants to applaud the fact that when millennials can't deal with real life, they have to regress back to naps and coloring books -- not all of them, but there are lots of them. I know the 24-year-old who colors at her work desk -- among other adults -- and ducks into unused storage rooms to get in quick 90-minute naps when the office gets a little too much for them -- this person exists. Fuck that person.

my mom has been stressed out lately. colouring books have helped her out. there is such a thing as adult colouring books. they sell them in book stores, in case you havent been to one in a while. it is a way for people of all ages to deal with stress. not just stressed out millennials. also, with the amount of debt the millennials in college have to deal with these days, its no wonder their stressed. college can stressful enough as it is. some people suck. in my experience, no matter what generation, they are have always been lazy slackers. im not one of them. i do know quite a few lazy dip shits who fit the category, but i know even more hard working kids who are trying hard to make it in the world. its not easy, you know. everyone has shit theyre going through. if colouring in some pictures helps, who the fuck are you to judge?

Okay, they helped your mother. Good. Now tell me, who paid for your mom's coloring books? Probably her. No problems. The problem is that tax dollars were used on this, books were purchased, probably facilities built and they probably hired a 'coloring book sensitivity awareness justice warrior professor'. Now do you see the difference. Maybe we could trust these kids to handle stress like mankind has handled it in the past. You deal with it as best you can, without someone (like momma gub'mint) holding your hand.

Agreed: Coloring Books Are Not Expensive. So let them buy them their own selves. Nothing against coloring book. I personally sketch when I'm stressed, BUT I BUY MY OWN FUCKING MATERIALS. I don't need anyone to hold my hand and walk me down the path to de-stressing. They've fucking adults, treat them as such.

what do you have against colouring books? because you think its childish? im perfectly fine with hard earned tax dollars helping to de-stress anyone out. i dont see a difference, all i see is that it helps people deal with their stress. you, and others, are just using this as an excuse to attack millennials. colouring books arent expensive, and they help people deal with stress. just because its not what youre used to doesnt mean you should attack others who do things differently.

It's more than just that their parents "raised them to be allergic to peanut butter". It's that they were raised by those parents who then also pushed a rule through at their kid's schools saying that no one else in the entire school was allowed to bring in peanut butter just in case they might, somehow, come into contact with their kids. At my kids' school some parents who didn't want their kids to have sweets made a rule against kids having cake or candy when they had an in-class birthday party. No cake at a BIRTHDAY PARTY? What assholes. And then they just can't understand why their kids don't grow up to be actual adults.

The coloring books are not for stress. They're about the most advanced curriculum today's youth can handle. It used to b a joke that "the library at *insert rivalry school name* burned down, they lost all their coloring books.' Now it's accurate.

There was a girl in my office, about 24, who brought coloring books to the office and would color in them from time to time. She got let go about 6 months after she started. The coloring books make sense now.
