Many of us could likely name older relatives who never admit fault or apologize, never receive feedback without finger-pointing, never tell the full story without selective omission and never uplift others without sprinkling backhanded compliments or passive-aggressive sarcasm.

Elders with more covert narcissism might be known for gossiping, turning relatives against one another, manipulating conflicts via guilt or the silent treatment and most commonly, playing innocent when people return what they first dished out. “Respect your elders” sounds benign at face value, but the ageism inherent in that adage can also rationalize an older-younger power dynamic that is nonreciprocal, exploitative, overbearing and silencing.
