many people complain that they hardly communicate with their children,the usual scene is when parents tell their children to do sth and not to do sth,their children feel bored or just say :you don't understand our opinion.Thus,this could be descripted by a word:generation gap.If dealed single and rude,this gap might be widder and due to worse situation.so,some expert of child suggest that parents should make good friends with their children.I think this might be an effective measure to deal with the generation gap.how to make good friends with children? I think good understanding and talk are necessary.what's your opinion?come and share us your family story.

You will adjust to them, not they will adjust to you give them space treat them as your best friend, your brother and sister and they will treat you like that also, do not communicate with them that you are must higher than them, be friendly, patience, understand what they wants, and tell them what do they like and not, and you the same. But of course theres a wall because you are the parents and they will obey you that is a give and take relationships just obey them as your children and they will obey you are their parents, be transparent to them and they will be transparent to you share your stories and they will share theirs too.Communication of course is the best answer to have good relationships with children, communicate to them everyday. Try it and it will answer your questions.
