For instance, if we talk about India, people born before independence are different from those born today.
There is a huge difference between the thinking of the two generations and why not?
New research reveals why some children are badly affected by negative family conflicts while other children survive without significant problems.
Researchers found that the way in which children understood the conflicts between their parents had different effects on their emotional and behavioral problems.
Where children blamed themselves for the conflicts between their parents, they were more likely to have behavioral problems, such as anti-social behavior.
But if their parents' fighting or arguing led to a child feeling threatened, or fearful that the family would split up, the child was more likely to experience emotional problems, such as depression.
It has been observed that the parents try to impose their values and ideologies on their kids while the later want to explore the world on their own.
Many relationships have suffered due to generation gap.
The impact of everyday conflict between parents on their children's behaviour and mental health is driven by how the children understand the problems in the relationship as well as the nature of the conflict itself, the researchers found.
These disagreements include; hostile relationships between parents, poor parenting practices, negative parent-child relationships and maternal depression.
