How to bridge the generation gap
Nowadays, it seems that the generation gap is unavoidable in almost every family, which leads to a lot of quarrels and conflicts between the new and the old generation. We must do something to bridge the generation gap and build a harmonious family atmosphere.
There are two ways to solve the problem. Firstly, the key is the mutual understanding of parents and children. Family members should express their ideas openly and not hide them in their heart, which is a good way to avoid complaints and misunderstanding. For children, they should understand their parents from their perspective, and accept their good intention, so that they will stop complaining about parents’out-of-date ideas. And parents should realize that young people have grown up in a modern society and are different from them. Secondly, people of each generation should not overesti*te themselves. It is not right to think that they are the only right person in their family. Teenagers have their own choices but can’t say that because of the old conceptions, the ideas of their parents are all wrong. Similarly, parents should stop imposing their own inappropriate thoughts on their children. In conclusion, I strongly believe, if all members try to establish a close family relationship with caring, each family will enjoy a harmonious atmosphere.
