Did your grandparents tell you stories?
If they did, you entered adulthood with the emotional tools you needed. You were prepared for the situations and relationships you encountered. Cartoons, shoot-'em-ups, and sitcoms can't replace elder-stories.
Elders are natural storytellers, and children are natural story-listeners. The tellers and listeners form a link in a "Chain of Wisdom," transferring life-lessons and cultural values.
Use the Chain of Wisdom to give your children the common sense and positive outlook that elder stories transfer in other cultures.
