The study ‎includes young people from the UAE in the age ‎group of 18-25, of both sexes, and concludes ‎important results about the fact that UAE youth ‎view the elderly positively regardless of the changes ‎surrounding society at the level of extended and ‎small families. The study also shows us some ‎indicators associated with this effect in terms of ‎place (city or village) and the level of per capita ‎income, and that the extended family receives more ‎attention and care for the elderly than the other ‎group. Finally, it concludes that the UAE youth ‎have a greater interest in preserving inherited ‎values and traditions in a way that enhances ‎positive citizenship.‎
