Discussion: Middle Adulthood

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss ONE of the following questions:

  • Q1: How do you plan to achieve generativity in your own life? If a person does not have their own children do you think it is important to find other ways to accomplish this goal? Why or why not?
  • Q2: What are ways to protect against divorce? Do you see marriage trends to continue to change in the future? Why or why not?

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links with necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Then return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
