All teenagers think that they have generation gap with their parents, because parents and children do many things by different ways. Actually, there are really a lot of differences between these two generations, and I think that their phylosophy of life, entertainment and the attitude to meet frastrations are very different. There are enough reasons and examples to support my opinion.
The fisrt difference is phylosophy of life. Our parents was borned in a hard era and they had the experience of war. Therefore, they are sometimes worried about many things and prevent aciidents in advence. They try their best to make money and don`t spend much time relaxing. However, we childreen live in a safe environment, so we don`t think much about the future. Our phylosophy of life is to enjoy it.
The next difference is entertainment. Technology changing leads to another ways of entertainment. Generally, our parents prefer outside activities, such as mountain climbing. Nevertheless, teenagers like to stay at home to play their computer games or play station. My younger brother is a good example. He spends all his leisure time playing games and he never goes to mountain with my parents.
The final difference is the attitude to face the frastration. All people would meet frastrations, but they use different ways to pass it. I think parents` generation can bear more presure because of their experiences. On the other hand, our generation often can`t accept that fact that we might be fail. For instance, I always don`t know what to do when I meet frastration. Sometimes I would be passive to get rid of it. However, my parents often advice me to face it and solve it. I think they are stronger than me.
Of course, there are other differences between our parents` generation and our generation. Nevertheless, I think what I list are more imporatnt due to the valid reasons I present above.
