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 and children?
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 adult.
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
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.
