secondly, i think technology is a major cause of generation gap, and it does broaden the gap, but it is not the only reason. there are many other factors such as beliefs, lifestyle, etc. that's my opinion.
hi first of all i have to admire your idea ,secondly i have some questions ,do you think that before us, 200 or 300 years ago, there was Generation gap or not?if so, how they solved that? and do you think that the big gap that today's we can see is created by technology? i mean technology causes that big gap or technology makes the gap bigger than before?...
I think somehow it can be usefull ,imagine that there wasn't any gap,then ... , i think our little disagreement is because of our different definition for generation gap , According to the Oxford Dictionary it is a difference in attitudes between people of different generations,and as you said generational differences have existed throughout history,but as i said to you because of more rapid cultural change during the modern era differences between the two generations increased in comparison to previous times, so i agree with you and this huge gap definitly is harmful.
In general, generation gap and its bad effects can be limited if all members cooperate to build up a close-knit family in which they are open and tolerant of each other. I strongly believe that each family, by doing that, can enjoy a cozy atmosphere with the minimum interference of generation gap.
Generation gap is unavoidable in not only extended families with many generations but also nuclear families between parents and children. A number of conflicts in a family are brought about by generation gap. In my opinion, to limit bad effects of generation gap, each family should use three following methods.
