Young People’s Perspective on the elderly to-day
“Young People’s Perspective on the elderly to-day”
Well done to the two young T.Y. students, Emma Loughnane and Emily Gavin from Scoil Mhuire, who couragesly gave us a very interesting and enlightening presentation at our monthly meeting last Wed.
We seem to constantly criticise the younger generation for their constant use of phones and other technology, their lack of communication, their bad pronunciation, their sloppy dress code, ripped jeans, over use of make-up etc.
We were pleased to hear they considered us wise, religious, more domesticated, better dancers, thrifty, respectful, responsible, generous, good listeners and chatty
On the negative side they noticed we were lonely, impatient, grumpy, hopeless at technology, not great drivers, prone to sickness.
The result of a research amongst the general body of students showed they considered you were “old” at age 75 and they thought our generation had a better lifestyle than the young people of to-day.
It seems we could learn a lot from each other!!
