hi rohini,

The gap between generations is becoming wider and wider gradually. in my childhood, there were some solid bond established between a child and his grand parents. these days, only two consecutive generations are in good terms.The children today are not ready to communicate or keep contact with their grandparents. the problem is we r missing many of our rich part of our tredition.

Hello guys,

thanks and  agree with your openion.i also thaught  that, one of the most causes of this problem is  ' Scheduled of life is very busy,tired and hard and as a consequence we will be unable to give proper time for them.

hi rohini, it's not because of tight schedule, the present generation or young generation today is not turning back to older generation. it is because of ego only(sorry for generalising things) may be rohini is talking out of imagination, but i am talking out of experience. we r living in a very advanced world, facilities are much, we find our grand ones are becoming an obstacle for us to be into this advanced lifestyle.  Think ahead. no one stays in the same age, every one of us are moving towards the days of oldage.

hiantonia82 I often send email to my mom,but I am sorry I still can not speak to my grandmother.because my father came from shanghai.I can not speak taiwanese language.

higuys.we have some phenomenons under present society.some of people saved their lietrature.I think family`s relationship is still important.the idea need to re-explain and practice in real world.that is very important.I saw some tragedy happening under"advanced society".I mean how to deal with tradition and modern that is very important.some traditions will be rebuilt in future/good condition.

good luck~
