While the world is changing fast, we think the best ways to get to know people haven’t changed that much at all. Quality relationships grow out of shared experiences either at work, school, or in the community, regardless of stage of life. The stereotypical idea that entire generations have little in common has gotten plenty of attention, but it rings hollow. Multigenerational interactions at work, in the volunteer sphere and out there in the wider world are usually enriching, educational and fulfilling. Generations getting together is a win-win proposition if ever there was one. Be connected by focusing on what you share with others, regardless of when they were born.

A Millennial and Boomer Talk About Phones


Welcome back to Millie & Boo! Today they take on phones and how to spend less time on them and get on to healthier things. Listen in: 


Boo:  You guys and your phones. It’s crazy! Have you seen those new updates that tell you how much time you spend on social media, productivity apps and reading?


Millie: First of all, us guys? Um, let’s get real. We’re not the only ones with the issue. But, yeah, that feature that tells you how much screen time you’ve had, you mean? It makes me feel a little judged. It’s the one time I don’t want to hear how above-average I am!
