Since the begin­ning of time par­ents have heard the phrase “You don’t under­stand me?” come out of their children’s mouth. If not, they have at least seen the thought pro­cess flash through their child’s mind, exem­pli­fied by a “sigh” or a slam­ming of a door after an argu­ment. Is this merely a part of growth, a rebel­li­ous phase every child must go through to achieve matur­ity or is there an aspect that is over­looked?
Taken from the ITunes ver­sions of his EP “The Dorm­room” Suli Breaks addresses the issue of the mis­un­der­stand­ing that exists between par­ents and their chil­dren. In “Par­ents are the hard­est people to please”, he touches upon his exper­i­ences as a young adult attempt­ing to purse his suc­cess, and the neg­at­iv­ity that he and so many oth­er exper­i­ence from their par­ents as a res­ult of this. He com­ments on the bor­der­line hypo­crit­ic­al atti­tude that is some­times adop­ted, that does not allow a child to flour­ish out­side the con­straints of the soci­ety, which their par­ents have sub­jec­ted them to.He states:

“I don’t believe that one party is always wrong and the oth­er always right. I believe it’s altern­ates, hence the need for there to be an under­stand­ing between par­ents and their chil­dren and acknow­ledge that they both want the best for each oth­er”


Much like crowd favor­ite on the down­load­able ver­sion of the EP, avail­able on his web­site “The Foun­tain Of Youth” Suli Breaks is call­ing for all par­ents to acknow­ledge that they can learn just as much from their chil­dren as their chil­dren can learn from them, and vise versa.
