MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holiday season upon us, people everywhere are hitting
Progressive worked with mental health experts and researchers and has uncovered just how common it is to feel stress associated with first time home ownership and for young people to exhibit behaviors they learned from their own parents. It can be amusing, reassuring, or even alarming.
"Generally, people find themselves starting to 'become' their parents when breaking new ground in their lives," said Nathan Feiles, LCSW, a mental health expert from San Diego who has extensive experience in this area and has written on the subject. "With little experience of our own in certain areas, we do what we've seen our parents do. This doesn't necessarily happen consciously, or by choice – it just happens."
A new campaign from Progressive seeks to reassure young homeowners with a humorous look at what it's like to "become our parents" in a transformation the company calls Parentamorphosis.
To help young homeowners understand they're not alone, Progressive presents the Top Ten Signs you Might be Experiencing Parentamorphosis This Holiday Season:
Progressive is carrying the Parentamorphosis theme into a cutting-edge new marketing campaign created with renowned director, Roman Coppola and agency Arnold Worldwide.
"This is a campaign based on the insight that eventually, we all discover ourselves acting like our parents, even doing things we never thought we'd do," said Jeff Charney, CMO of Progressive. "It's a simple concept, but something we can all relate to. We discovered that when young people purchase their first home, the stress of this big new step can flip a switch and trigger what we're calling Parentamorphosis. And we thought this time of year, when many young homeowners are hosting their first holiday gatherings in a new house, was the perfect time to launch this campaign."
