“During my time …”
“Kids these days are so …”
*
*
A generation gap is commonly perceived as the
differences between generations that cause
conflict and complicate communication, creating a
"gap”.
"Generation gap can be a frustrating lack of
communication between young and old, or a
useful stretch of time that separates cultures
within a society, allowing them to develop their
own character."
*
*The drastic differences were not much in
evidence until the twentieth century. Before
that time, society was not very mobile.
*Young people typically lived near their
extended families, worshiped in their childhood
churches and often worked on the family farm
or in a family business.
With the advent of television and movies, young
people were exposed to cultural influences alien
to their own families and cultures.
Performers like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and
James Dean won adulation from the younger
generation but were often met with derogation
from the older generation.
Then came the 1960s, and civil rights and the
Vietnam War which exposed a more serious
chasm between young and old.
*
Big difference in use of technology and taste in
music.
Slightly behind these areas of difference are listed
the following:
? Work ethic
? Moral values
? Respect for others
? Political views
? Attitudes toward different races and groups
? Religious beliefs.
*
Technology and music are less emotionally
charged than political issues.
The older generation is likely to be proud of
the younger generation's prowess in technology
rather than to view it as a problem.
As for the musical differences, each generation
wants its own style of music, and the older
generation generally can relate to that desire.
The younger generation tends to regard the
older generation as superior - in moral values,
work ethic and respect for others - to their own
generation this is clearly a difference from the
1960s when the young said "Don't trust anyone
over thirty."
Nowadays the younger generation is regarded as superior in
tolerance for different races and groups.
One American survey identifies “increasing acceptance of gays
and lesbians” as a particular area of difference, with almost
half of those up to age 49 seeing it as a good thing, but only
37% of those aged 50 to 64 agreeing and only 21% of those 65+.
*
Once demarcated by political splits and cultural
touchstones, the separation between the
generations is now far subtler, defined by
disparities in outlook, attitude and specific
behaviors rather than core values and beliefs.
*
1. “My sons think nothing of leaving the house and
venturing out in public.”
2. I use cash. They use debit cards for any purchase over
24 cents.
3. When I travel, I pack in suitcases. They grab the first
vessel they can lay their hands on: gym bag, backpack,
plastic bag, pillowcase … whatever.
4. “I worry about losing my wallet. They worry about
losing their phone.”
5. “If I am meeting friends, we will send emails, confirm
the location and, if dinner is involved, make a
reservation. My kids will text their friends from the
driveway and change the location at least twice before
making a final decision. And they don’t usually have just
one destination; for them, ‘plans’ are a moving target
throughout the night.”
6. I think established credibility and fierce individualism —
in journalism, academia, business — are important. Their
generation believes market and crowd consensus are
what matter most.
7. I download apps and software that I need. They download
apps and software to find out what will prove useful —
or fun.
8. I still believe good news can come out of the mailbox.
They think only junk resides there and never (as in never)
actually open it.
9. They think you cannot turn off a video game until it is
over. I have no idea why (although I have a tough time
putting a great book down).
10.Because of social media, they still “know” everyone they
have ever known. I look back and wish I could revisit
moments with friends I lost track of decades ago.
*
Based on what I have read and researched the
generation gap cannot be generalized and so
extremely intolerant. It’s a good way to get
knowledge for both sides, whether in terms of
tecnology, innovation, lifestyle, cltohes or of
ideological thoughts, cultures and ideas in society
(beliefs, politics, behavior). Each one has their
matters to improve both the world and the quality
of theirs life.
