As youngters we feel that parent’s don’t understand or empathise youngsters feeling, yes it is true.
Who knows the baby well? More than a mother no one knows much about baby, even baby don’t know much themselves. As time passes by this environment and the brain development of baby, helps them to think better. The baby starts to grow mentally and physically.
As you see, mom experienced physical grow of the baby than the mental grow, her most of the concern will be based on body. It starts from feeding the child, bathing, protecting. Physical growth can easily be measured, but it is not the case for cognitive development. There are no evidence for parents to know that their child have actually surpassed their intelligence. If they understood this thing, then they don’t even care to bother about it.
Parents always wants to protect their children, speaking of which, for protection they will go for any extent and even that protection is not actully a protection, they will provide the protection, which what they think as protection. ie. getting the daughter get married, she was handed ovet to an ninja who is now responsible for her.
When talking about this, we should definitly see from both the sides, youngsters and elders.
Youngsters may not understand the risk factors, they do not fear, they are even ready to risk their lives and they live in the moment. So whatever they decide they want to do it. So when a elder say something useful for them they won’t listen, because it is totally out of thier league. But considering future in hand elders tend to say (something useful). This something highlights that some other things that they say are outdated and some of which are just a myth.
For a very basic understanding atleast anyone of them should empathise which each other’s condition.
You can able to understand your parents feeling when you live in the future, likewise parents can able to understand you if they live in the present.
