In Canada: boomer self-satisfaction conflicts with reality

"Despite what the boomers tell us, they are, in fact, an unhealthy lot over all. Diabetes and obesity levels are rising compared with previous generations. As for their generosity, Statistics Canada says the number of Canadians giving to charity has dropped to 25 per cent today from 29 per cent in 1987.

In the Strategic Counsel poll, which surveyed 1,502 people and is considered accurate to within 2.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, boomers said their kids love them, they really, really love them. Forty-nine per cent believe they have a better relationship with their kids than they had with their parents. More than half claim they listen to similar music. Sixty per cent of boomers believe their adolescent or adult kids 'enjoy their company very much.' Only 1 per cent admit their kids can't stand them."
