Learning in a family from intergenerational perspective
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on intergenerational learning in the family. The research question is: What do children, parents and grandparents learn from one another and how they see it? To find answers to this research question, we have organized a questionnaire survey among participants of courses (programmes) of non-formal learning attended by adults of different generations. The questions focused on basic characteristics of respondents and their families, on their evaluation of communication in the family, leisure time sharing, family atmosphere, relations and directionality and reciprocity of learning. Answers by three groups of respondents (children, parents and grandparents) were compared and interpreted on the basis of characteristics and attitudes of the respondents and their families. One might expect that research in intergenerational learning in the family may bring a new outlook of the family which might provide a kind of counterpart to the processes of family weakening which have been pointed out so often. If family members learn from one another while not insisting on relations of dominance, if they pass their knowledge and experience in both directions, they enrich one another and strengthen the cohesion of the family as such.
