"When I was your age..,." is a centuries old statement that evinces the generation gap. Things were always tougher but better “back in the day.” The present generation usually mocks the older generation with jokes about “I had to walk five miles in the snow without shoes…” and so on. If this is the extent of the conversations, both generations are missing the opportunities available to them to absorb the truths each has to offer the other. No matter which side of the gap you look onto, there are lessons to learn and teach and ultimately contribute to the happiness and growth of all.
