What were the names of your great-grandparents? Are you just two generations away from being forgotten?
These can be biting questions, but, nevertheless, they are questions that beg answers. “What were the names of your great-grandparents? Are you just two generations away from being forgotten?” The fact is, even if we don’t know the names of our great-grandparents, their influence is with us in ways that we will never know. Parents “pass down” styles of thinking, feeling, and behaving that can strongly resonate (or at least ripple) for generations.
There is striking evidence with many different good (and bad) behaviors that are observed in families over generations. The human animal is quite resilient, though. We can pick and choose those things about ourselves that we want to enhance or change. Being a Maximum Strength Parent today can start a series of positive thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that can create powerful waves (and ripples) for generations. And then even if your great-grandchildren don’t know your name, they will know you.
