Discussion 5--Growing old gracefully: Intial post due 8/7 and responses due 8/9
4 unread replies.
Please NOTE: There are different due dates for Initial POSTS and for Responses
What does "growing old gracefully" mean (this has nothing to do with "looks", but rather attitude)? What issues in Older Adulthood contribute to making this easier or harder? What does it mean to be resilient? Describe the most important buffers a person in their older years may have to help them live life to the fullest. How can one prepare and develop buffers before this point?
Post your well considered thoughts.The required word count for your initial post is at least 350. After you POST your ideas, you will be able to see other students' posts and be able to comment on them. You must respond to at least two other students' viewpoints substantively. Do not just say "I agree with you", say why or why not.... BE SURE TO HAVE THOSE COMPLETED by the DAY AFTER the DUE DATE for the INITIAL POST or you will lose the 5 points. see below.
