Children's Attitudes toward Older Adults and Aging: A Synthesis of Research
Gilbert, Cara N.; Ricketts, Kristina G.
Educational Gerontology, v34 n7 p570-586 Jul 2008
This paper serves as a summation of literature on children's attitudes toward older adults and aging. Research indicates that the vast amount of information available provides varying levels of understanding toward children's actual views of older adults. Differences between measurements, settings, and procedures stand as barriers in cross-comparison of studies and findings. There is a need for early aging education and as well as consistent research methods.
