I believe people who were born in da 80s mostly considered “90s kids” and by some degree those who were born in da early 90s…. basically those who were born during da 90s r considered 00s kids mostly imo…
But I’ve seen many people who were born in da late 90s who consider themselves 90s kids which’s wrong…
Wot do u believe?

To me you a 90's kid when you can still remember some of the trends, music, tv shows, etc. So like kids that were born in 1986-1992.
I was born in 1991. So I can still remember toys that were HUGE! Some of the commercials for those toy's, hearing songs being played on the radio at that time. Different fashion trends, etc.3

I was born in 1988 and I believe you have to be born in the second half of the last decade to be able to call yourself a kid of the next decade. Cuz if you're born in 1994 for example, you might kiiiind of get some of the things from the 90s but you're not really old enough to learn about the pop culture or even about politics and important events of national or global impact. For example, I still remember playing games in the DOS system, before their was the windows interface (I learned all the commands by heart, so I knew what to type into the computer at what time). My dad is an IT engineer and because of this, we were one of the first private households to have an internet connection. I still remember my dad explaining me that the internet is a connection of computers all over the world and me thinking "that sounds silly... what could that ever be useful for?" ;-). Also - and perhaps most importantly in terms of technology - I am one of the very, very last kids who mainly grew up without a cell phone. Already people who are just 5 years younger than me didn't experience this anymore. When I was 14 or so, almost nobody had a cell phone. I still remember calling my friends from the home phone to meet up and when you were late, there was no way of telling them! And yet, we survived just fine :-). I only got a cell phone when I turned 16 and only because my parents wanted to get me one. Also, with the first cell phone I had, you couldn't do much. You could text and call and that was pretty much it. This was long before the times of listening to music or playing games on your phone.
However, there are also other things I remember that don't have anything to do with technology. For example I remember how my country changed since the 90s (and especially since the 90s, there was a pretty big change in fact). Starting from the 00s, suddenly much more foreigners started living in my country. Before we were much more isolated. This also made some cultural norms and customs change. I also remember for example that my country got much more globalized since the early 00s. When I was a child, the opening and closing times of all the stores were very strict, according to typical western European socialist/social democratic values (strong worker's rights). When I was 6 or so, all the stores closed at 6 pm. sharp. No exception. On Saturdays, they closed at 12am sharp. no exception. On Sundays, everything was closed. No exception.
