Conflict of generations composition

All the mighty experience of mankind is based on the continuity of generations, and the strength of each people is to preserve traditions, respect for the elderly and the prospects of youth. But the problem of misunderstanding between children and parents is also equally perennial, reflected both in famous literary works and clearly manifested in real life.

How deep is the conflict between the older and the younger generation, and is it limited only by the differences in tastes in music, fashion and behavior? In fact, the reasons for the lack of mutual understanding are much more complicated and are explained, as a rule, by the ardent desire of adults to protect children from mistakes and disappointments.

Having behind the shoulders of life experience, parents more clearly see the potential dangers confronting a frivolous teenager, more thoughtfully aware of the consequences of his incorrect behavior in those or other cases. But in every possible way protecting his offspring from the harsh realities of life, adults thereby deprive him of his own experience, substituting him for his own. Whether they act in the interests of good and altruism, or authoritatively impose their decision – the result is one, and disagreements invariably lead to rather acute and long-term conflicts.

Of course, it is unfair to blame the situation for adults only, since adolescents, alas, with their quick temper and lack of respect, are capable of exacerbating relations to the limit, not paying too much attention to the parents’ remarks and treating them as an unfortunate interference in their own lives.

But the greatest complexity of this problem is, perhaps, in its inescapability. After all, even deeply and thoroughly knowing the nature of the conflict, it is hardly possible to reconcile a balanced and judicious older generation with an explosive and disobedient youth.
