Generation gap refers to the difference in values between one generation and the next. Often, it refers to the trouble with communication between children and their parents. My parents hated my music (Jimi Hendrix, Cream), since their music was quite different (Glenn Miller, swing bands). That was a generation gap between their music and mine. The slang you use is probably quite different from that of your parents. That is also an example of a generation gap.

As wikipedia says "The generational gap is a term popularized in Western countries during the 1960s referring to differences between people of younger generations and their elders, especially between children and their parents." ^)
