Snowflake generation refers to the young adults of the 2010s, who are viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations.
“雪花一代”（xuě huā yí dài）指最近几年的青年。与以往几代人相比，他们被认为是适应能力更弱并更易发怒的一代。
The term has also been used to refer to Millennials. Some sources attribute the characteristics ascribed to Snowflake Generation to parenting methods, particularly those that focus on boosting self-esteem.
The term originated in the United States, a reference to parents reportedly raising their children as "special" and "precious" snowflakes.
