How to easily navigate the generational gap between you and your child?

CapeTalk/702 Eusebius Mckaiser (standing in for Redi Tlhabi) asked listeners to share their challenges and experiences of navigating the generational gap, and how they relate to their children.

The problem for me as a parent is that I still don’t have in my head what black success looks like. My kids don’t belong anywhere really. They ingest all the whiteness from school and when they come home they feel they don’t belong. They are in this island where they are not black enough in terms of culture and not white enough when they are at school, it is very confusing.

I think we are becoming more and more lazy parents especially with the new generation. It’s not about filling the gap from what the school does but it’s you as parent setting the boundaries in terms of what needs to be done.

We are a Jewish family and our children go to regular English schools. In spite of that we have strongly enforced what our cultures values are, we follow our holidays and we do what we have to do at home and there is no clash
