Nowadays there is a problem
of generation gap in our society. Many young people
think that they realize the realities of modern life
better than their parents. However, some parents think
the same and try to be over-caring or even aggressive
when their children do not obey them and live their
own lives. So, who is right in the battle of fathers
I strongly believe that the main problem is misunderstanding
each other. Usually
young people want to be left on their own and think
that their parents will not understand their problems
and will run wild when they find out some problems
their children have. So, adolescents tend to hide
their feelings and emotions instead of discussing
them with their parents. Many youngsters think that
adults want them to do ridiculous things, their advice
is rubbish and parents sometimes make them feel uncomfortable.
However, many scientists claim that such behaviour
is caused by children's wish to be independent and
The other side of the coin is parents. Though they
were young like their children, they sometimes look
as if they forget about it. I mean that parents do
not want their children to make mistakes and try to
protect them. That is why they may be too strict and
do not want to explain why they act in such a way.
In conclusion, I want to stress that parents and children
should listen to each other and discuss all the problems.
We should try to establish good relationships to avoid
problems of misunderstanding in future.
