Since birth till 12,13 years of his life a child is entirely under the influence of his parents. They are the one to decide from ‘what to eat’ to ‘what to wear’ and ‘where to go’. With the passage of time a child becomes more influenced with the outer world and parents become overprotective, it creates a drift in thinking which in turn creates a change in actions in one generation which may or may not be acceptable to the other generation. This drift is something we call as generation gap.
“A generation gap is defined as difference of opinions regarding beliefs, rituals, culture, society and values.”
