The problem of fathers and children: both sides are wrong
Sighs and indignations of the older generation on the theme of the fall of modern morals are heard at any time. The problem of fathers and children appeared long before the creation of the work of the same name. And it was not Bazarov who began this struggle — this is the normal stage of growth for any young man and girl on the path to adulthood. The problem of fathers and children in literature has been described for a very long time; remember the parable of the prodigal son. What about modernity?
Is a generation easier?
There is one strange pattern. For some reason, the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is better than the relationship between children and parents. And the matter is not even in the density of contact, but because grandmother or grandfather rarely need to contend with a grandson for power. And their age-related weakness makes the attitude of their grandchildren more cautious, reverent. The fact is a fact - people in a generation get along better than two adjacent ones.
Do not share ... the world
Probably, the fact is that the old people are eliminated from giving an unambiguous assessment of the surrounding reality; this is no longer “their world”. But parents claim a better understanding of what is happening.That is, the problem of fathers and children in our time is connected with the fact that parents arrogantly try to keep the elusive world and lock it into their often outdated model, and children overestimate their analytical skills and adaptability.
The ambiguity of the problem
How to find a compromise? The older generation needs to learn flexibility, and the younger generation needs self-criticism. In understanding reality, they both make mistakes. And young people may misunderstand events, and older parents are sometimes surprised by the rapid development of technical means and new working methods. Together, generations can do a lot if they are not just trying to devalue the merits of each other.
The problem of fathers and children will always be relevant, because these relationships are the closest on Earth, and the closer the interaction, the harder the disagreement. People are forced to communicate at close range, and all misunderstandings strongly hit the pain points. By the way, pain points for many years of living together all know each other. And enjoy it. Therefore, you need to carefully communicate at a short distance, to be more careful.
Have time to say
How many parents mean a lot, many realize after when there is no one to say about their love. Then the best is remembered. Maybe you need to appreciate every day near the father and mother, grumbling, ludicrous, irritable, but such relatives? Other parents will not give us, and it is impossible to replace them. But it's so simple in our time - to call your mom or dad and say: "I love you." And then many problems themselves will become irrelevant. And you will understand that the war with windmills and the struggle for freedom cannot give the happiness that every child feels near the parents while they are alive.
Far and near
Let's forget about quarrels with parents. We will fight for freedom without offense and psychological violence. Move away a bit to become more mature. But we will always be ready to support the weakening hand of mom or dad. It is more expensive than principles. This is Love. The strongest on earth.
