Now and then our parents don't understand their teenage children. Lots of things — lifestyle, relationship, career choice — can become a stumbling rock between parents and children. And that's normal, because generation gap is real. However, we can try to understand each other, to hear each other out.
Our parents and grandparents often remember their youth and compare it with how they see our teenage years. But it’s not right, because people almost always tend forget bad things about the past and remember only good things. So they say that in their youth everything was better.
Sometimes our parents are hovering around their almost adult children, being overprotective. It can annoy now and then, but they are just worry about our well-being. It’s not good, though, when parents don’t let their child make his or her own decisions and mistakes. It’s crucial to learn to cope with problems on your own, because parents won’t be around forever. And for the same reason teenagers should spend more time with family, if possible.
We all have our own experience, ideas, feelings and thought and sometimes it’s really hard to hear another person, because we are too focused on ourselves. Warm and trusting relationship between parents and children is great and I hope that every teenager could have a person who wouldn’t turn cold shoulder to him.
Write true, false, doesn’t say:
1. Generation gap is something made up, a lie.
2. People almost always tend forget bad things about the past and remember only good things.
3. It’s crucial to learn to cope with problems on your own.
