Parents Must Treat Their Kids As FriendsFirstly, make friendship with your kids, ask their day to day activities, which in return will help bridge the gap. From deep friendly attachment with parents, kids will learn to respect them and obey them. Do not scold your kid in front of everyone rather make them realize their mistake individually as this can forbid them from asking any question in future which will again lead to generation gap.
Kids Must Show Respect To Their ParentsIn a similar fashion kids also have to show respect towards their parents as this gap can only be filled if these two parties work together to bridge the gap.
Limit Excess Use Of Gadgets & Spend Some Time With ParentsAn important factor which has hindered the communication between parents and kids is the excessive use of electronic gadgets namely mobile phones, laptops, iPads etc. Physically everyone is in same room but they are on their mobiles etc. Children should also try to reciprocate the amount of love their parents show towards them. Try to surprise your parents with frequent gifts, help them in bringing groceries from the market, try to teach them the use of modern day gadgets if they ask to. Be humble if they scold you because they are getting old and fragile. Try to spend more time with them, share your problems because only they can give you best and friendly advice in the light of experiences they have gone through.
Share your thoughts, what you think about generation gap and how it can be filled.
