A Quick Thought Exercise

Children often think that their parents can't relate to them. They think that the parent doesn't know what things are like for them, not realizing that things really don't change as much as they think, and the parents know  what things were like because they were the same when they were that age. 

But what if they don't? What if the parents really can't relate to how the kids were at that age? Because what if the child is in fact older than their own parents, how could the parents know what it's like to be their child's age if they haven't yet reached that age themselves?
