How to transmit values?

We start exploring the next stretch of our channel, the one that represents the lives of our children; our descendants, both genetic and cultural, are all that will remain of us when we will not be here anymore; without them our individual life seems something as ephemeral as a good that we are destined to lose and therefore it might seem useless to do so much to protect it: it would be in fact a war without hope; who believes then that the children give meaning to our lives is fully right and this can be, at least in part, extended to cultural descendants, consisting by all those who in life have learned something from us.
What is commonly known as family is a simple social human aggregation formed by a pair of parents with their children and its role is undoubtedly to grow offspring; such activity is particularly difficult for humans: to make the children autonomous in Western countries takes about 25 years, using so many resources that we have to limit the births to two or three in a lifetime. We know that it has not always been the way; as still today happens in other parts of the world, until a few decades ago also in the West it was common to have families with six children, who at twenty years were considered adult and often already independent; compared to our closest relatives, the monkeys, twenty years are lots to wean children and, also considering the energy used, we must agree with those who argue that children are also the purpose of our lives.
We must recognize that children, like the family, are values always current and in the modern world seem to be even more valuable, considering the time devoted to each child, but somebody says that the family is in crisis and that there are no more values in general; how is this possible? The current world of industrialized countries is very different from that of our ancestors and also compared to that of our grandparents, and old methods to take care of the children do no longer work today: to support a family, two salaries are needed, often both parents must work outside, children are entrusted to grandparents when possible, but it is often necessary to leave them to kindergartens, then to full time school, summer camps and other external structures; finally in the house there are always television and video games.
Despite the effort and money spent, we have less time to devote to our sons when they are children, and when they grow up, it is too late. The centrality of parents as an educational reference is highest in the early years and then it is integrated over time by other figures: first the grandparents, then teachers, friends and society; it is therefore when children are small that the absence or improper conduct of parents is a more serious problem. In the first two years, learning capabilities are similar to those of the other mammals cubs, are based on direct experience, on the game, on imitation; the first things we learn are not explained to us, we would not be able to understand: they are simply shown through guided experiences and supervised by adults; in this way we learn to walk, talk, to distinguish the affectionate gestures from those hostile and learn to recognize the first values.
Today no one denies the importance of the family, everybody recognizes it as a value and however, recalling the days when the father returned from work and all the family strictly ate together, this value was more present in our lives; it is through these behaviors and other similar that since we were kids we have learned to recognize family as a value, they are these habits that remind it to us and makes us feel it close, protected and cared for. Eat meals together is an habit common to all cultures and to invite friends to eat with us, therefore, has a great symbolic value that means we consider them as family; here with the same ritual we have also introduced the value of friendship, which is important for a social animal.
The values are therefore known and kept alive through behaviors that have always been associated to them; these behaviors in the modern world are no longer, or much less, practiced and are these habits, these ways of doing that are disappearing, not yet the values, but the disappearance of values will inevitably be the next step if we don’t do something to prevent it. We therefore need to replace the old traditions no longer practicable to other compatible with modern life, because the values are something to be practiced, inserted in our daily habits, not just mentioned.
