The Golden Rule

There’s been news lately of the effects of “elderspeak“.  The way we speak to our elders can have an affect on their health if they feel talked down to or disempowered because of it.

The solution is simpler than you might imagine. Ask.

Your elders can let you know how they want to be treated.  Ask.

It’s easy to assume we know what’s best, but I urge you; Ask.

    Goodf Afternoon:
    we need to re-write the Golden Rule to:
    Do unto others they way the would like you to do unto them.
    I agree: ask.
