Some people think only school children do not agree with their parents, however, it is not true. Communication is a problem for parents and children of all ages. if it?s hard for you to communicate with your parents, don?t worry about it.

unhappy. Then think about what you want to say to your parents. If you don?t think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter. Try to reach a compromise (和解). Perhaps you a nd your parents disagree on something. You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept each other. Michael?s mother didn?t agree with him about buying a motorcycle. They argued over it. But they finally came to a compromise. Michael bought the motorcycle, but only drove it on certain days. Of course, your parents might refuse to compromise on something .
