Even at the age of 80, fewer than half of the individuals showed measurable decreases (Holt, 1998). And still another misconception is the belief that the elderly are set in their ways, that they are not open to change or capable of creativity. Research, again, has disproved such claims, showing that creativity is a personality trait and does not depend upon age (Ibid.). What then has led to these public misconceptions? Part of the problem could be a trait called cautiousness.
Chronological age is not always a good measure of age because it does not incorporate one’s overall well-being. For instance, if one is 80 years old and runs everyday he may feel ‘younger’ than a 60 year old who is stagnant throughout the day. Instead, it is beneficial to measure people in terms of functional age based on their capabilities. In this way, elderly people are measured more accurately and individually compared to being lumped into a group of various generations. The meaning of chronological age has changed in correlation to an increase in life expectancy.
Even though some people think that women should be able to work even if they are mothers what is there opinion on fulltime stay at home dads? In some causes the father willingly stays home while the wife goes to work, but other hand the husband stay at home because the have been laid off. It shouldn’t be an issue that men are becoming stay at home full time dads, instead it allows a role swap that can be very beneficial to both parents. Mom gets to go out be the breadwinner and dad does all the things mom usually does. With this role change, both are able to appreciate each other’s important role in their family dynamic.
This is an example of the modernization theory, those incapable of staying informed of and able to utilize new technologies and methodologies will inevitably lag behind the bell curve. This effect of modernization complements the disengagement theory because when people fall behind the bell curve, they are no longer fit to remain as a comparably productive member of society and so society slowly pushes those people into their own section where they can live free of the pressure to conform. For the elderly, this comes in the form of movement from their family or their own house to an assisted living or nursing home environment. It is safer in these places and they can get any help they need at a moment’s notice, something often unavailable anywhere else. The view of aging in the U.S. focuses around trying to regain something lost, namely youth.
So, if they are encouraged to take those jobs and given the ability to stay in their home by the banks re-adjusting their mortgage to reflect the true value of their home that in turn would lower their mortgage rate and give them freedom to pay their mortgage and all their bills. Just the same those individuals in their homes on the verge of foreclosure but may still have their jobs but had to take a cut in salary to keep their jobs also need to have the same ability to have their mortgage re-adjusted to the true value to help stay in their home by paying down their mortgage. Banks, media, investments, education, government, and consumers all are responsible for this mess.

These are ideas on a large scale but on a smaller level individual level, many home owners are not recycling and were told to use receptacles not their garbage pales or a fine would be instituted.
Gender roles provide stability and order in society. For example, in societies with traditional gender roles there are arranged marriages. Arranged marriages provide stability and order, because it takes the stress off women and men. It also eliminates the fear of rejection from either side. It keeps order because the woman will stay in the house, take care of the kids while the men will go out and make a living for the family supporting them with money.
There reasoning behind this was that studies show that mothers who stay at home are less happy than those who work. In fact, once my mother started working again when I was in high school I noticed she was much happier. Now, in my mother’s new marriage, her and my step-dad work less to be able to spend time with the younger kids, which is working out just great. On the other hand, my father and step-mom are both highly invested in their careers and rely on domestic outsourcing. Although, they have chosen different family arrangements, they are both functioning just as well as the other, all while meeting the family
Since the consumer thinks at the margin and rational, they will be less likely to take risks and in this case a risk would be investing in a new house. Therefore, new buyers of the market will be scarce. All the houses the banks own due to foreclosure will continue to sit. Many home owners are faced with negative equity on their homes which at this point they will walk away from their home (Mullins). The best market to target for the solution would be those who are paying for rent rather than those buying houses for allowing more people to stay in their homes will decrease the surplus in the housing market.
This plan targets to reduce foreclosures significantly so that the majority of those in danger of a home foreclosure will be saved and so that the other effects of foreclosures will not continue or worsen, leading to economic stability. In this time of economic turmoil, citizens of the Unites States of America do not have stability in their jobs. They need stability in their homes. They need to come home from a day at the job or a day looking for a job and know that at least their home will not be taken from them too. That is exactly what this plan would accomplish.
Regardless of what you may have heard, organic brain damage effects less than one per cent of those over 65. But in thinking about physical change, remember that this is just one aspect of aging.
