A generation gap is a calculated gap between one generation and the other. Sometimes it is foggy and dizzy to tolerate, other times it gives backend perspective. However, these days the generation gap has become a ‘problem’ for many people.
This problem is irreversible and universal. It is felt extensively in countries where the families live jointly. In fact, it is experienced in everything- in nature, behavior, morality, ethical values, beliefs, experiences, etc.

The parents who were born earlier to independence or even post-independence have faced a lot of economic, political crises in their lives. That’s why their thought process and ideology have been set that way. They tend to guide and transform their kids into self-sustainable human beings
.
But sometimes, the beliefs of children may differ because they are not experiencing the same problem. They would want to mold themselves in their way. Sometimes their thoughts align with each other and sometimes don’t. This creates a void/gap between them and their parents.

Is generation gap good or bad

When the current generation of teenagers and young adults was born, rapid economic and social changes were taking place across the globe. That’s why they are subject to the advancement and rapid decision-making. They don’t want to do a lot of struggle in getting something because everything is mobile and handy!
Also, there is a development of technology along with the development of adults. Technology has a huge influence on the people of our generation. That’s why, maybe in some places, parents are unable to pace up with their children in this matter. They try to learn and understand the current dynamics.

Due to differences in bringing up and inculcation, the struggles and mental framework are different. It is clear that psychological and behavioral patterns are formed on the basis of circumstances that one undergoes. So, the difference is inevitable.
However, in some cases, if the children are as understanding as their parents, take care of their thought process and viewpoint then this gap may feel lesser. If they empathize with each other then they would not drift apart from each other.

The change is predictable and the difference is inevitable. Hence, there is no one solution to combat it. If we start viewing things from others’ perspectives as much as we see them from our perspectives then the problem would feel smaller. The gap would still be there but in a positive manner. It is up to us how we curtail the situation of dealing with differences.
