  1. 3 A) Brainstorm the main areas of conflict

between parents and adolescents, b) Think and say:

  • To what extent do you think that such conflict is inevitable? How can it be avoided?

  • What does it mean to be a good son or a good daughter?

  • Do you think the ability to be a good parent comes naturally or should people be taught certain rules? What rules?

Read and say which passage, A or B, more closely reflects your opinion?

Explain why.

A All people need to have their own sense of identity to cope successfully with adulthood. If an adolescent just unquestioningly takes on the values of his parents, there is no struggle for identity but this can lead to problems later on in life if the individual then starts to question these values. Most adolescents need to reject their parents' values in order to find their own. Therefore, conflict with parents is almost an essential part of growing up.


The amount of conflict between adolescents and their parents has been greatly exaggerated. Most conflicts between adolescents and their parents are caused by criticism of their choice of friends, too much interference in their social life and too little financial support. However, their fundamental values tend to remain similar to those of their parents, and it is their mother and father that are most likely to consult over educational and career plans.
