Life (Part 2)

Generation Gaps

Season 2, Episode 2 of 20

LIFE (PART 2) hits the streets to find out what annoys baby boomers about 20-somethings - and vice versa. Then, social psychologist Jane Adams (When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us: Letting Go of Their Problems, Loving Them Anyway, and Getting on with Our Lives), Tamara Erickson (Plugged In: The Generation Y Guide to Thriving at Work) and Yankelovich president J. Walker Smith (Generation Ageless: How Baby Boomers Are Changing the Way We Live Today... And They're Just Getting Started) illuminate the differences between the baby boomer generation, Gen X and Gen Y and discuss how to bridge the generation gaps. Psychiatrist and behavioral scientist Gary Small explains how the brains of a generation raised on texting and Google may actually physically differ from their parents'. And comedian and comedy writer Eric Kornfeld explores just how quickly age catches up with us.
