speak about generation gap

The Old and The Young

Your takeaway at the end of this lesson: enough vocabulary, increased confidence, and  managed ideas to speak confidently about generation gap.

Relationships are the critical ingredient in well-being, particularly as we age, but today adults often live far away from their families of origin. We are mostly not only geographically scattered, but also fail to effectively communicate. Belonging to different age groups can make this conversation even more challenging. Young people can perceive the reaction for the senior as “lecturing,” while seniors perceive it as offering valuable advice. Children have a lot more time with their peers than with adults. The adults are usually their busy parents or relatives who may not have the energy left for quality time.

Then the older adults miss out on putting their wisdom to use after retirement. Adults work, children go to school, and there are elderly programs for the rest of people. As Cornell professor and child psychologist Urie Bronfenbrenner famously concluded, “Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.” The benefits of a caring adult mentor on children’s well-being have been reinforced in study after study. But why is this gap not easily bridged in the modern world?

Let’s learn more and discuss the benefits of bringing the generations together.
