How to have a life long close relationship with your kids ?

Recently seeing a lot of disappointment from parents/ grown children regarding their parents/ grown children. Both sides disillusioned with the difference between who they want/ need the other to be/do and who they actually are/ do. What has kept you close to your parents/ children?

Recently being receiving comments such as "Enjoy them while they are young!" which got me thinking that I'd like to enjoy them forever thank you very much and that I don't know anyone (!) with a good lasting relationship with their parents (including me) or with their grown children. Good being defined as mutual enjoyment (what else?) and no trauma from history.
Um. So. Hope this makes sense. I'm very new to parenting. Thank you.
