Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier looks at the questioning of the very young and the elderly and points out that the motivation for both are similar, saying it is for the feeling of safety and security in their very different stages.
DECATUR, GA, December 11, 2018: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm’s website entitled “Understanding Deepens Patience When Caring For The Young And The Aging.” Ms. Collier educates readers about the motivation that inspires the young and the old to ask the same questions repeatedly.
Collier writes, “Humans go through 4 stages of life: birth, aging, sickness and death” She continues adding,”Most Americans rarely think about those four stages of life. I mean, we arrive on the planet mostly eager to absorb everything we can. Then we start sensing and exerting our power and see how far we can go with it. We then experience independence and off we go into the world of late teen and early adulthood.” “By then,” she says, “we are off deeply engaged in discovering and creating whatever idea we have of what a successful life looks like. More often than not, the vision of a successful life includes more offspring.”
“At the birth of a child,” writes Collier, “I doubt there is a parent anywhere that doesn’t want to give their children a quality of life equal to or better than their parents provided them. It’s natural to have that desire even if you can’t fulfill it.” She elaborates, “Many parents read every book they can get their hands on about raising children. Others don’t have the time, inclination or wherewithal to study about how to raise children. They simply do what their parents did or merely determine that they’ll be different.”
According to Collier, “No matter which route you took as a parent, I’m sure you did the best you could. Every parent does the best they are capable of doing to provide for their children.” “If you are a parent,” says Collier, “you know how true that is even if you think you fall short. That’s a pretty natural feeling among parents too.”
Collier explains the reasoning behind the questions of the very young. Then she turns her attention to the elderly. She writes, “Understanding the repetitive questioning of an aging parent is a completely different experience for adult children.” She adds, “When parents enter into the phase of illness, which can include dementia and Alzheimer’s, they too begin to repeat things over and over. They may ask the same questions too. They also need reassurance that their world is safe.”
