“Where is Workforce Really Booming? Among the Oldest Workers”

Why We Wrote This

“By conventional reckoning, someone at 65 years old or even 55 is “retirement age.” But labels are being lifted as older people stay active – and as employers see value in hiring them.”

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
I interviewed my dad, though with my mom, the interview has been done in bits and pieces over the years. Both experiences however empowered me to see my parents through adult eyes … forgiving, understanding, and compassionate eyes that made me appreciate, respect, and love them in ways I had not before.
Best thing I have ever done for my parents and for myself.
Wishing the same for you if you have not yet done so.
Kaitlin

PERSPECTIVE … “Dealing With Aggression in Children”

“The researchers suggested that pediatricians can reassure parents that these behaviors are normal in small children, but also guide parents, right from the beginning, in setting limits and responding in ways that may help — redirecting or distracting a child — rather than by punishing the child with anger, yelling or spanking.”

“CAN WE TOUCH?”

“Physical contact remains vital to health, even as we do less of it. The rules of engagement aren’t necessarily changing—they’re just starting to be heard.”

“Field, a developmental psychologist by training, went on to found the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. She was a pioneer in highlighting the effects of “touch deprivation” among kids, famously those in orphanages. She explained to me that the effects are pervasive, influencing so many bodily systems that kids are diagnosed with “failure to thrive,” resulting in permanent physical and cognitive impairment, smaller stature, and social withdrawal later in life—which often includes aversion to physical contact.”

“Part of the reason this research didn’t happen sooner is that it was seen as extremely obvious. Yet even as evidence of the importance of physical touch has piled up, the world has been moving in the opposite direction. “You don’t see people touching each other anymore, in large part because they’re all on their phones and iPads and computers,” Field said. “It’s very disturbing to see parents doing less touching of kids, if they’re just sitting there on screens.””

“I think some of that is reflected in what’s going on, where people are seeing the hierarchical aspect of the touch and not the supportive aspect.”

“RECLAIMING FRIENDSHIP: A Visual Taxonomy of Platonic Relationships to Counter the Commodification of the Word “Friend””

Being “liked” on social media is nice … however, having a real friend who likes, accepts, and forgives our not being perfect is rare and far beyond just being nice. It is what we all hunger for in a world that is becoming less tangibly real.
