Конспект 41. Upbringing. Generation gap
Raising a child is the hardest, most responsible and satisfying task a human being can face. It's also the job for which people receive the least formal training.Each person's knowledge of how to bring up a child usually comes from their surroundings and their own upbringing. This may result in patterns from the parent's own social experiences being repeated and passed on to their children.
Offering explanations helps children work matters out for themselves. Take time to point out how things are connected, for example, in terms of cause and effect.Parents, who think out loud with their children, will see them develop a similar train of thought. They will learn to talk and think in a more sophisticated way. If parents express emotions and feelings, their children will learn it's okay to do the same. When your children want to talk or ask questions, encourage them. If you're dismissive, or always say you're too busy, they may express frustration and stop wanting to share their thoughts and feelings.
If the family has a problem that concerns your child, involve them in the discussion. Try to find possible solutions together with him or her.When discussing options, also talk about consequences. The possible outcome will influence your final decision. Be open to the child's suggestions. Let them take part in the negotiations and the decision.A child who experiences this kind of communication will become confident and learn the rules of good communication.
Though sometimes the situation is a bit more difficult than it looks.From cell phones and texting to religion and manners, younger and older Americans see the world differently, creating a large generation gap. Nowadays Americans of different ages are at odds over a range of social and technological issues. Almost 8 in 10 people believe there is a major difference in the point of view of younger people and older people today.
Asked to identify where older and younger people differ most, 47 percent said social values and morality. People age 18 to 29 were more likely to report disagreements over lifestyle, views on family, relationships and dating, while older people cited differences in a sense of entitlement. Those in the middle-age groups also often pointed to a difference in manners.Religion is a far bigger part of the lives of older adults. About two-thirds of people 65 and older said religion is very important to them. Younger people are more likely to embrace technology. The age gap widened even more over cell phones and text messaging.
