MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said sometimes he is having legal disputes with his son Ilya of 20.
"He (Ilya Medvedev) studies to become a lawyer, thus sometimes he has legal disputes with me, gives his arguments, and this is good," he said in an interview with Rossiiskaya Gazeta.
Prime Minister Medvedev has graduated from the Legal Department of the Leningrad University with a degree in Legal Sciences.
Medvedev said the son would have disputes with him "on most different questions."
"For two reasons. First of all, the youth are stubborn always. I can remember myself very well - I used to argue with the parents about things, I would not argue now. Back then I thought my opinion should be fought for. And secondly - he tries to argue also about major questions, which, I believe, is not bad, as any person should improve own positions and arguments."
The youth nowadays is "a new generation from the point of view of habits."
"We are used to be reading newspapers on paper, and they are born with table PCs in hands. I am not saying they do not read news on paper, but still this world is very different to them. While in the mid 90s it took me some time to transfer from regular life to computerised life, they are born with it," the prime minister said.
"However, young people nowadays are the youngsters like those we used to be."
"Thus, I would not say this generation differs a lot from our generation," he said. "It is a favourite discussion about the generation gap - what we were used to be, what they are like. All generations argue about it. In fact, all people are people, and the youth is the youth.".
