Bringing the Generations Together. How the elderly can help the young – and help themselves. Twinning nurseries with care homes for the elderly would boost children’s literacy skills, according to a thinktank that is calling for every childcare provider and school to build links with older people.

It started on the popular app TikTok as a clap-back at adults who seem dismissive of young people's concerns and are resistant to change, whether it's with the environment, technology or politics. 'OK boomer' is dividing generations. What does it mean? Back in 1963, when the term “baby-boomer” was first published in a Salt Lake Tribune article, it carried just one definition: a person born during the tail end or in the decade after World War II, when the United States saw a tremendous spike in births.
"OK, Boomer": The millennial generation's way of waving away the opinions, instructions and interference of older people gets a response from an older person.

I take no offense. We Baby Boomers are used to being condescended to. We grew up under a barrage of insults from the the World War II generation.

(3) 'OK boomer': What it means and why the phrase is going viral. Millennials v baby boomers: a battle we could have done without. The generation of young people who came of age during the new millennium – “millennials”, as they’re commonly known – has divided opinion like no other.
Some have deemed them a self-pitying and entitled bunch; lazy, deluded and narcissistic.
