Do our parents give us enough freedom to make our own choices ??

In the early 2000's , the world went through a transition, it became flatter , smaller and smarter place to live in . Due to emergence of internet and steroid gadgets there was information flow like never before , this may have destroyed all other barriers but it created new barriers for people - the ones born into the bubble and the ones born before the bubble and in my opinion this is what has embarked upon the differences of opinion between us and our parents as they belonged to latter 'creed' of people.For Example go ahead and ask grandads-"Are your kids gonna be vegetarian ?" They would reply "Yes.." Ask the GEN Y the same question then they would rather reply "nah!! we going to eat KFC".
They have their notions based on their experiences and we have ours based on our experiences.Their experience truly more than that of ours but a good decision not just needs an experience(yes! it helps) , it needs precision and innovation.
According to me freedom to make your own choices cannot be given or gifted it is owned by the student itself . If the student is well aware of the world around him , and knows how much time to sit on facebook or how much junk food he/she should eat or knows what career options he's gonna take I don't think parents should interfere in our decisions based upon our perspective of life , I am lucky enough have to such parents who let me take my chances in my life and I respect my parents for that , at the same time we should always know where to make our boundaries if we don't do that then I believe our parents have right to intervene in choice we choose for ourselves .
Even though these generations has wide set of  opinions , collaboration should be maintained to keep argument and scuffles at bay . There should be an agenda of co-operation on common interests, mutual needs and shared responsibilities , which both parents and their wards should understand .

Yeah.. I know surprise ending!! :P
 Hope u liked this piece of graffiti .... will be writing more
