In modern society, there is often a hck of understanding between parents and children. Purents dislike what their children think and do, while children often complain that their parents can not understand them. This is often called generation gap.
There are some reasons for the existence of generation gap. First, the environment in which young people now living is quite different from that of their parents'. Therefore, they often hold different opinions on various problenas in life. Second, disparity in age also leads to misunderstanding. Young people want to do everything as they like, while older people often can't help interfering when they think what the young people are doing is wrong. This inevitably leads to disharmony.
In rny opinion, generation gap can be bridged as long as both parents and children are willing to make efforts. They may have an open talk and tell each other what they think about certain problems. They should be considerate enough to realize that each generation has its own advantages and disadvantages. Their openness and consideration probably will result in a much better relationship between purents and children.
