Currently, books, teachers, parents, movies and Internet are the basic learning sources for young people. However, our parents and grandparents along with our teachers are the older people who teach us our first lessons. They pass on us their experience and knowledge for the world.
Nevertheless, I do not agree that there is nothing that young people can teach older people. Nowadays, young people are better informed than their parents are. What is more, young people are interested in new technologies and are more adaptive to the modern world. That is why, they often help their parents cope with new gadgets such as mobile phones, DVD systems or modern home appliances. For example, my parents often look for my assistance when they have to work on my computer.
Another example that young people can also teach older people is fashion. Our parents especially grandparents prefer to dress themselves traditionally but often old-fashionably. Consequently, if older people want to look more stylish the best advice they can get is from their children.
Apart from new technologies and fashion, there are many other things that older people can learn from young people. For my lifetime is so different from that of my parents I believe that I may teach them something new or I can simply show them that many things in life have changed since their youth.
Summing up, people can learn something new every day no matter if they are young or older. Although our parents are the best teachers we can have, I truly believe that young people can teach older people a lot about new and useful technologies, fashion or about the modern world. In my opinion, the most important thing older people can learn from young people is how to keep their spirits young for good.
