A — Gap

Mr. Phanas Phokthavi



A— Gap because of the interval of ages looks simple but so complicated in the real life, especially in a family.

Many things children do not realize are just because of difference of ages, which includes generation differences.(Idler, 2013)

everywhere along with our increasing wrinkles. Our thought, adherence, and self defense are all created along the way while the children lives are just start. Therefore, difference of age is an important factor to make A— Gap. The gap is always there. However, it is a part of our lives.
