I believe that nostalgia plays a big part in the bond we create with our children. In moving countries and continents I’ve eliminated the shared geography basis. In having boys, some further shared interests were crossed off the list. The nostalgia I felt toward the components of my own childhood has been stripped off of some essential ingredients, but the bond that this reduced form of nostalgia allows is all the more valuable for that reason precisely.
Shared childhood interests can be found in unexpected places.
Some things from your childhood are always relevant.
Other things grow in and out of favour.
