Dear Mr Cameron, I am writing to inform you of my opinions on society from the views of a teenager. I think there should be meetings across the country where senior citizens and teenagers could meet, share and exchange skills such as social media, music, internet and woodwork. This would give people the opportunity to learn new skills and make sure old games and stories are not forgotten. I also think senior citizens could be more involved with our generation such as learning how to use the internet for example to buy goods online. There would be a group of teenager volunteers and anyone could be involved. I feel this would help connect the generations & get youngsters to see the elderly as real people who have a lifetime of experience & to look up to them with respect as is the case in many other countries. I also think that as bullying is becoming more of a problem there should be a group of volunteers to make a young counselling group. People could phone up and talk through their problems with another person of a similar age who may have experienced the same difficulties. They would always be there just for someone to listen to you and to know someone is on your side. I also think it would be a good experience for the volunteers as it would improve listening skills and increase self-confidence. Kate
