The current group of adults in this time of life have been referred to as the “sandwich generation”. After you have read the chapter, the additional reading and watched the videos of generativity in general, and particularly for this generation during this stage of life, write an essay (minimum of 500 words) in which you thoughtfully respond to the following:
Women are more often kinkeepers and caregivers than are men.
- What does the term caregiver mean for adult women (hint: refer to the textbook chapter)?
- Why might women be the designated kinkeepers and caregivers in their families?
- How are these roles both a blessing and a burden? Please discuss at least one pro and one con.
