How does advice from parents differ from advice given by friends? Advice from parents often differs from advice given by friends in several key ways: Experience and Wisdom: Parents usually have more life experience and wisdom. They’ve likely encountered many of the same challenges their children face, which allows them to offer practical and time-tested advice. Friends, on the other hand, might be going through similar stages of life and may not have the same breadth of experience. Their advice might be more relatable but less informed by long-term perspective. Perspective and Objectivity: Parents tend to have a long-term perspective on their children’s well-being. Their advice often considers future implications and long-term benefits. Friends might focus more on immediate concerns and short-term outcomes. Their advice can be more spontaneous and less weighed down by considerations of long-term consequences. Emotional Involvement: Parents are deeply emotionally invested in their children’s lives. This can make their advice more caring and protective, but it can also lead to bias as they may have strong opinions about what’s best for their children. Friends, while caring, usually have a more detached perspective. Their advice might be less biased and more neutral, as they don’t have the same level of emotional involvement. Authority and Respect: Advice from parents often carries an inherent authority and is sometimes seen as a form of guidance that should be followed out of respect for their experience and position. Advice from friends is usually seen as a suggestion rather than a directive. It’s often taken more casually and can be more flexible in its application. Understanding of Individual Context:

Adapting to different ways of dealing with uncertainty The people you meet might respond to uncertainty differently than you. Consider seeing things from their point of view and adapting a little. Listen to this story of Nicole and Susan. Nicole likes routines and likes to plan in advance. Every Sunday she spends the afternoon and evening at her parents’ house. Every Monday she meets her best friend for lunch and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings she goes to a café and reads. Having some control over what’s going to happen makes her feel safe. Then one day Nicole meets Susan. Susan never plans things in advance, is always late, and prefers to be flexible. She likes to make decisions based on how she’s feeling that day and feels that doing the same thing is limiting. Nicole tried to make plans to meet for coffee in advance, Susan sounds uninterested, but she never gives her definite answers. Her behavior really annoys Nicole. With people who don’t mind uncertainty … Remember that you can learn a lot from the unknown and the unfamiliar. Show flexibility. For example: For me, either way is fine. Let me know what you’re comfortable with. With people who avoid uncertainty … Offer details when making decisions. Provide a context with background information. For example: The reason I do it this way is… Let me explain why (I’m doing this). Show you understand the importance of structure and plans. I understand the (structure/flexibility) is important / means a lot to you. I can see why you (spend time on planning). Follow me for more Everyday English https://www.italki.com/en/teacher/13365914
