In today’s day and age, it’s more difficult than ever for the young to receive the rites of passage they need from their elders.
Local theater director Robert Benedetti remembers growing up when nearly every home in his neighborhood was a tri-generational one; the grandparents lived in the household with the family. That’s something he noted isn’t as common today as it was decades ago.
“It’s tough for young people not to have exposure and guidance to the older generation, and it’s really tough on the older generation not to have the influence and energy of young people around,” said Benedetti.
