Hey, Carol! So glad you weighed in with your thoughts. Communication is important and as long as we keep talking we can keep evolving, hopefully together instead of farther apart.
Yes, there are Boomers who want respect for what they’ve accomplished. Others just expect it.
My kids are in Gen Z and I definitely want them to succeed. I hope the same for anyone else that has the drive to do so. I also want them to challenge the status quo, but not unnecessarily. I hope I am also rearing people who have basic manners and the ability to speak and hold conversations of value. Time will tell.
Glad for you that that you, that you are a person of change.
