Fonda promotes "generativity"

Near the end of the book, Fonda promotes "generativity"—the nurturing of the younger generation, to enrich the third act. Fonda has manifested this by founding the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention.

拍《金池塘》的時候,我跟凱薩琳赫本建立了非常深厚的友 誼。老年學專家指出,想讓自己老得健康快樂,有個重要條件,就是要具備所謂的「代際關懷」(generativity   hc按:一般指有生產能力、有活力、生生不息的;此處指老年人要用照顧年輕一代,以豐富自己的人生最後一慕,第三幕---60歲起......)。
這是知名心理學家艾瑞克森發明的術語,意思是發揮做為長輩的角色,照顧並關心下一代的成長。研究已經證明,具備這種關懷的人,往往老得比較健康。 而對我來說,當年的凱薩琳赫本就是一個關懷後進的長輩,對我特別照顧,更傳給我許多人生智慧。
