Some people think only school children do not agree with their parents，however，it is not true．
Communication is a problem for parents and children of all ages．If it’s hard for you to communicate with your parents，don’t worry about it．Here are some advice for you to bridge the generation gap(消除代沟)．
Don’t argue with your parents．Don’t get to your parents when you are angry．Your parents probably won’t consider your ideas if you are shouting at them. And you can't express yourself well if you are angry. Go someplace to cool off
. Make sure you understand why you are unhappy. Then think about what you want to say to your parents. If you don't think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter.
Try to reach a compromise(和解). Perhaps you and your parents disagree on something. You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept each other. Michael's mother didn't agree with him about buying a motorcycle. They argued over it. But they finally came to a compromise. Michael bought the motorcycle, but only drove it on certain days.
Of course, your parents might refuse to compromise on something. In these situations, it is especially important to show love and respect(尊敬) to them. Showing respect will keep your relationship strong.
Talk about your values. The values of your parents are probably different from those of your own. Tell your parents what you care about, and why. Understanding your values might help them see your purposes in life.
A good relationship with your parents can make you a better and happier person.
