So I’m kind of in the very early stages of writing a play, and I thought I’d centre it around the generation gap between parents and children nowadays and how frequent miscommunications can result from that. I wanted to highlight the need for both parties to be more empathetic towards each other. While it’s true that parents know best because they’ve led their life long before our time and have learned from their mistakes, I also thought it important for parents to understand that the situations we face nowadays aren’t exactly the same as it was in their time. On the other hand, I want us as children to understand that we are our parents’ legacy. I hope to address how best we could shoulder our responsibility to make them proud, because we owe our lives to them.
Now, this is where YOU come in. It would be absolutely amazing if you could share stories of when you wished your parents would see things from your point of view more often and listen to what you have to say before making conclusions of their own and start telling you what you should do. I’d love it if you could share personal experiences from when you thought your parents’ advice was better for them instead of you. I would also be really appreciative if you’d share the times you felt that you let your parents down or wish you had done better.
If you feel that you want your story to be heard, you could just leave me a message with your name and where you’re from. This will greatly assist me in my writing process, and I also wanted the content of the play to be from the heart. I hope you all understand that the main aim of this play is to foster understanding and harmony both ways so as to ultimately reach a place where both parents and children can be content.
I think when it’s all over, It just comes back in flashes, you know? It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories. It just all comes back. But he never does. I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or anything he did, It was the feeling that came along with it. And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again. But I don’t know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright. But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me.
“When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he’s everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he’s not easy to spot; he’s really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.”

I’m friends with a lot of girls who are like, 16 or 17 or 18, and I do definitely give them the advice that I wish I would’ve had when I was younger. ‘Cause I wouldn’t change the course of my life, but if there are some little things I could help them avoid here and there, I definitely do.
