Transmission, Propositions…

Yesterday I talked with a grandpa about what we transmit to our kids. Tastes? Culture? Pace?

  1. There’s this concept, to explore : transmission. There are whole books about it!
  2. 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!
