The society is made up of older gen and younger gen. Society cannot progress without active contribution of both gens. The relation between them should be on the basis of love and honour. They should be mutually satisfied. In this way, generation gap can be minimised and both gen can live happily.
For a while there, in the first part of the new millennium, the generation gap was pretty much assumed to be dead.
People in their 40s shopped in the same clothing stores as people in their 20s, and listened to the same sort of music.
It's obvious when we look at how youth engage with technology, the Internet, mobile devices, and each other, especially when it comes to social media. This is the new generation gap - the divide in how millennials develop relationships compared to the older generation.
Nowadays it’s different. Everything’s a lot more easy-going, more relaxed. And parents don’t stand on their dignity so much nowadays, either. As a result, parents and children are closer to each other than ever before. They go on holiday together, go to concerts, and share each others joys and sorrows. Almost like best mates!
And here’s another difference from years ago; the younger generations, Generation Y and the Millenials, are taken much more seriously. Much less patronized. If they ask “Why?” there’s a rule, they usually get a proper answer.
I personally believe that the gap is closing again. Just differently then when I was a teenager
