define elder generation... cause i got some suggestions... :)
can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs :)
Goes both ways and for the same reason , we both "know" that we know best . I've been a kid that had all the answers and now I'm a grown man with the experience to know that I didn't have enough right ones .
younger generation don't listen to older generation as well. So that even things up.
I think a lot of the problem is the younger generation not listening to the older. When I was younger I listened to the older folks that I respected and I knew they were listening to me. I did not assume that I knew everything and that they with wider experiences didn't have anything to contribute to me. I listened to them and I learned from them. In many ways they learned from me too. Just because the older generation doesn't get all fired up and jump to follow whatever new thing is being esposed to them doesn't mean they're not listening.
It's not a generation issue, it's related to the person. No one regardless of age likes to be told what to do.
Because the younger generation wont listen to the older generation. We don't respect our elders like they did. We may not be wrong, but we don't have to be so rude to them about it.
I think we didn't lived the same things, that may explains. But I don't get it completely.
No one likes to be shouted at....too much talking and not enough listening on both sides.
I don't believe we should generalize. I know some wonderful young people that talk to me often. They are polite and a joy to be with.
Perhaps they had a bad experience with young people labeling them as old and not worth the time to listen and respect. I live in a Mid west city and the young people here make public comments that are rude about older people. One common remark is" All those old folks need to take their ***'s and hide off in their house" or "why do those old folks keep trying OUR KIND don't want to be bothered with them".
Would you listen to a young person making loud and rude remarks like that to you?
