Yesterday I talked with a grandpa about what we transmit to our kids. Tastes? Culture? Pace?
- There’s this concept, to explore : transmission. There are whole books about it!
- There’s this other concept of proposition.
Nature/nurture, of course : the first thing we transmit is a pack of genes. In French we say “Les chats ne font pas des chiens” (cats don’t make dogs).
I said : I proposed things to my daughters, some were caught, but many not. Like classical music, which gave… nothing.
He said : “Some things are transmitted, some are not”.
And added : sometimes kids build something AGAINST…
What do you think?
Thanks for reading!
