The survey reflects the mindset of the youth today when it comes to opening up to their parents and the flip side – what parents think about their relationship with their children.

It further revealed that the generation gap was leading to a communication gap, with it being among the top two reasons that they are unable to have these conversations with their parents. Around 70 percent of the youth stated that they would like to talk about their feelings with their parents and have a more open relationship.

On the other hand, when asked to parents about their relationship, 92 percent of parents said their children are completely free to have conversations with them. And while the youth felt there was a generation gap, 72 percent of parents did not feel that the generation gap made it difficult to communicate with their kids, added the survey.

The data revealed that 42 percent of the parents hadn’t been in a relationship before and hence might find it hard to empathize with their children.

Commenting on this, Adhish Zaveri, Director – Marketing, Shaadi.com said: “In India, the family is still the most important source of care and support for singles. Unfortunately, as we’ve seen in the study, the generation gap between parents and children often translates into a communication gap. Being able to talk about relationship matters freely can help alleviate anxiety and offer comfort. With our Shaadi Cares initiative, we’re urging parents to open-up to their children, so that they can too.” (IANS)

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
