Generation Gap Nowadays,there is often a lack of understanding between parents and children.Children always complain that their parents are out of date,while parents can’t approve of what their children say and do.Thus,a big generation gap is formed. The gap remains wide for many reasons.Children want to be free to choose their own friends,select their own classes in school,plan their own future,earn and spend their own money,and generally run their own life in a more independent way than many parents allow.Also,young children wish to be understood by their parents,but most parents don’t quite understand their children.They regard it as their responsibility to teach their offspring traditional beliefs.They want them to be obedient and do well in school.Therefore,misunderstanding often arise from parents’ tendency to interfere in children’s daily activities. In my opinion,most problems between parents and children could be solved by joint efforts of both sides to enhance mutual understanding. 代沟 如今,父母和子女之间经常缺乏沟通.子女经常抱怨父母过时了;而父母并不赞同子女的言行.于是一个很大的代沟就产生了.产生代沟的原因有很多.子女希望过比父母允许的更独立的生活:自由的选择自己的朋友;在学校里自由的选择自己的社团;自由的描绘自己的将来;自由的支配自己的花费.当然年轻的子女们也希望能够得到父母的理解.但是并不是大多数的父母都能够理解他们的孩子,他们认为教育他们的后代树立传统的信仰是他们应有的责任,他们希望子女在家里能够孝顺,在学校能够好好学习.于是,不理解就往往从父母打算干涉子女的日常生活中产生了. 我认为:父母和子女间的代沟问题可以通过双方相互理解来共同解决.
