You'll be able to relate well to all age levels when you, yourself are an adult. Age is really unimportant -- the only difference is experience of historical events; you already have spent time with people of different skills and experience levels.
(1) Treat them like you would a peer. （1）对待他们如同辈。
No, really: trust them, call them out on their misbehavior when it happens, make sure they feel valued and be sure to ask clearly for what you want or need.
By the way the behavior you don't have to deal with: "Life was perfect before and young people suck." You wouldn't pal around with a jerk like this who was your own age, so don't pal around with this guy.
(2) Avoid clique-ing up by age group. （2）避免以年龄分派系。
Lunch time? Include the random oldster(s) who have work-things-in-common or are at the same organizational level.
Remember being old isn't a sad thing and they're not pathetic in their oldness -- nor are they necessarily amazing or pedestal-worthy. They're just people. Include them.
(3) Be self-aware.（3）有自我意识。
Be able to say what you don't know and need help with, and those things you want to at least try to do yourself. If you feel that you've "got" something, speak up.
(4) Above all: do not treat this person as a parent. （4）综上所述：不要把对方当做长辈对待。
Do not take their trust and support for granted, and also do not put up a wall and push them away in an effort to build yourself.

1.Listen to what they have to say.1. 听听他们想表达的事情。
2.Don't behave like you have all the answers.2. 不要表现得自己什么都知道。
3.Find an older worker with a similar style to work with as a mentor. 3. 找一位工作方式相似的资深同事，在工作中多向他请教。
