    According to me in present time the big broblem is growing social media as well as bussy life style.. parents haven not got time to spend their children thatswhy it’s happening . And one more big problem is social media due to social media our affection is becomming less. Sothat youngsters using foul language with his parents and the youngsters have more anaxity for any deed . They always want to go by himself they thinks that whatever we ar doing that is right

    According to me generation gap is a big factor in the family. Especially teenager children does not want to listen to their parents, they think what they are thinking , what they are doing it is right and parents does not know , they don’t have idea. parents cannot make them understand and children cannot make them understand. It’s create a misunderstanding in the family and tension. Sometimes it impact comes drastically , somebody wants to break the relationship, somebody think they will leave the house. Parents what they have habits , they don’t want to change it. Actually parents and children if they have friendly relationship then they can disclose each other very easily and make them understand very easily . Then children what they want to express to their parents they can speak and parents also make them understand what is right , what is wrong then each other not face any problem.
