Overview

Childhood and old age go hand in hand in this beautiful poetic text.

Age-related increases in wisdom and life experiences, is a drive to give to children in a meaningful way. The aging population has “distinctive qualities" to meet the needs of youth. Older adults are exceptionally suited to meet these needs in part because they welcome meaningful, productive activity and engagement. They seek – and need – purpose in their lives. As for older adults they benefit as well, experiencing emotional satisfaction in relationships with young people. One way to achieve such contact is through volunteer service, which is associated with better physical health and cognitive performance for aging people. From a societal view, these interactions are positive, too.
