About this title:

Synopsis: "We live in a world of accelerating change and one of the most significant changes is human longevity. This has an impact not only on the length of our lives but also on the quality of those years as well. Unfortunately, little is done to educate people when they are young -- from elementary school on - as to what they should expect. Gerald Larue's book shows that something can be done -- indeed, is being done -- that could serve as a guide to all school systems in addressing this need. It is critical, because our health, economic security and happiness in later years are highly dependent on the choices we make and actions we taken when younger. The volunteer experience described in this book also shows us how to take into the years of wisdom and experience of older people to make the educational experience very real and enjoyable. I highly recommend NURTURING RESPECT to all interested in shaping a better quality of life for all." -- Horace Deets, Former Executive Director of AARP, Research Fellow to Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Age Lab, Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford University's Institute of Ageing, and Chair of the Board of Help Age International, and Board Member of National Council of La Raza

Synopsis: This book is teaching by example. The Programme of 'respecting adults' was developed at the Andrus Gerontology Centre at the University of Southern California. It offers lesson plans and exercises to prepare for the encounter between the young and their elders. The process is a group format meeting where questions are asked and answered from both sides, and ideas exchanged about ageing and the young's perception of ageing. The instructions in this book prepare adults for the difficult and emotional moments they will face in the exchange with young people. Ageism, a form of bigotry directed against the elderly, is alive and well in America. This thinking begins in childhood and education about adults and ageing needs to begin to supplant the bigotry. As a society, we have worked to understanding minorities, now it is time to consider the largest minority - the elderly (which may be 30+ for a child). This book gives scenarios and some of the dialogue that has happened in these meetings. The responses from the young after these meetings are very encouraging. It is the first step in the process. Respect is the consequence.
