Family tradition, the involvement of the family in holidays and everyday living and education was always very central to our upbringing. We were brought up with books, we were brought up with conversation, we were brought up with good food, sitting around the table, the family dinner was a very important place for our family to have discussions about what was going on, that day and in the world that day.

So we were pretty well versed as we grew up and in every I shouldn't say everything, but in many things, and things are very different now, very different, there are so many things pulling us in different ways. Children if you're a soccer player, all you do is play is soccer, and you get home late after a soccer game and you're exhausted and you're this, scoff down some dinner then you might have time to do some homework, I watched this with all my friend's children and I hope it will be different for my grandchild, who knows.
