DO YOUR PARENTS UNDERSTAND YOU?
“FATHERS and CHILDREN” is a problem of all times.
Today we are going to speak about relationships between children and their parents and problems in the family. There can be no doubt that relations between people are the most important for any person. I completely agree with those people who consider a family to be such a formidable unit without which a person can’t be protected or happy, confident or safe.That’ s why relationships between children and parents are so important. Some call conflicts in the family generation gap.
“Generation gap is the difference in ideas, feelings, and interests between older and younger people, especially as a result of lack of understanding”.
My happy family.
Leo Tolstoy once wrote “ All happy families are alike”. I believe it is true. When a family is happy it means that all members of the family trust each other, tell each other about their joys and sorrows. The family plays a very important role in everybody’s life. Labour achievements, mood and what is called happiness depend on family relation.

How did Alan’s mother and father treat the children when they did something wrong?
My mother and my father are very different people. Mum is always very calm; she doesn’t get excited. When we were small she almost never shouted at us. When we did something wrong she talked to us very firmly, but in a calm tone of voice. If we shouted and cried she made us go and sit by ourselves in our room until we calmed down.
Dad, on the other hand, shouted and went for a long walk to try to cool off. During the next few days he was cross with us a lot of time, which upset us.

Let’s see what kind of parents you have got.
Score 6-10: Oh dear! Are your parents doing their job properly? They are a bit soft, aren’t they? You might think this is wonderful, but you need a few rules in life. Without rules you’ll grow up into a big softie too, and life will be a shock. Ask your parents to give you some rules and start telling you off more often.
Score 11-14: This is good. Believe it or not. Your parents are thinking about you and your future and would like you to grow up happy and normal – and you probably will. It’s a strange world, isn’t it?
Score 15-18: WOW! Your parents are very strict. If they really are this strict, then you are a member of a royal family or something, and all these rules are necessary for your safety. If not, try telling them that you don’t need that much protection. But you have to show them that you can be responsible and that you are beginning to think and act like an adult. Then they won’t worry so much.
I want you to be happy!!!
A happy person is that who finds peace, consolidation and support with the dearest!
