It is generally believed that young people can always take a leaf from older people. But from my point of view, the young and the old should learn from each other.
For one thing, young people can teach older people fresh knowledge. Take for instance, most of youngsters understand computer and IT field very easily while older people are reluctant to accept knowledge completely new to them. What if they would get help from the youth? My experience showed both young people and older people will benefit from it. I used to spend a whole week on teaching my parents how to send e-mail and use Internet to search any information they were interested in. Although painstaking the process is, now I am able to keep close contact with them and they enjoy reading news and entertainment by clicking on the mouse. It is really a fantastic!
For another thing, older people are able to live a happier life if they could learn the zest for life from young people. As for this point, I indeed admire older people in western countries, who never lose energy for enjoying life. In China, most of the aged people are used to various burdens and automatically take all kinds of responsibilities while sacrificing themselves. In my opinion, that is not the healthy attitude toward life. Older people should also explore the essential of life and treasure personal interest in daily routine, just like the young men are striving for.
In conclusion, it is incomplete if only young people share the experience of older people to improve themselves. Life would be more beautiful if the old and the young could learn from each other, help each other, and go ahead hand in hand.
