Young people can provide olders several valuable lessons
Some people would claim that youths are just taught by older people and they are not able to lecture poeple who have lived longer. However, I personally think even young people can provide olders several valuable lessons. There are the following three reasons.
First of all, young people are able to offer new ideas. One of the advantages youths have is that they generally consider things more flexibly compare to older people. For instance, in few decades ago, many people though that homosexual is a kind of illness and gay people had been discriminated for long time. On the other hand, these days, more and more young people became to think that homosexuality is nothing wrong and no one should not blamed because of their sexuality. This idea has been prevalenced through in the developped country because many youths claimed that. This is a good example that young people can teach liberal ideas.
The other thing youth can instruct older people is up-date technologies. Since the technology in the world has developped so rapidlly, some older people have dificulty to use newly devices, such as compurters and smartphones. In contradict, young people are extremely good at these 21st century technology because such devices had already exist when they were born. Consequently, young people are the valuable instructers for older people to learn how to use the Internet or communication devices. In my experience, my grandmother bought a smartphone last year but she was struglling with using the equipment, so I taught her how to call or send e-mail.
For all of the reasons mentioned above, I am strongly convinced that there are many valuable things that older people can learn from young people.
