"What makes intergenerational communication difficult?"
"It's not difficult if we are simply sharing stories, enjoying conversations person-to-person. Personalities and perspective are fascinating regardless of what era you call your own. However when we operate purely from perceptions, then intergenerational communication can seem complicated. Stereotypes and silos can keep us from experiencing the real human whether older or younger.
Another aspect that can make things difficult is the tendency to simply talk, thinking that is 'communication.' Listening is a skill embraced for generations upon generations."
