New Boomers (born 1983-2001) – “Take only half the advice you hear and none of what you get from reality TV.”
Generation X (born 1965-1982) – “Know that your parents were the most experimental generation ever – and many of their experiments failed! (But the music was great.)
Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964) – “Get some rest, take your meds!”
Alan Thicke is best known for his role as the psychiatrist and father, Jason Seaver, on ABC’s “Growing Pains.” He has since appeared in TV movies and feature films, received rave reviews on stage and remains one of America’s most sought-after emcees.
