Different Minds have different opinions on different subjects. A human being can give his opinion on a particular subject only according to the things or facts he knows about it. Everyone has their own perception towards life and this perception changes drastically with one generation to another.
The generation gap is increasing and widening at an alarming speed. Every upcoming new generation is getting more advance and takes the more advantages of modernization.

This should be considered as a blessing but sometimes, the young minds gets tempted and his/her use of technology mayn’t be appropriate. The modernization and the technology are mainly the reason behind the daily conflicts between a teenager and his/her parents.

The older generations are not much involved with the new technologies where as on the other hand, it is fully adopted by the young generation with the changing age and time, the opinions of the children don’t match with their parents.
Lets see how?
