My mother is illiterate, but her son is a Ph.D. What effect does it have on the offspring? Whenever we went to our house with new clothes, the tailor would put his advertisement tag on it. Now my mother was illiterate. We were small children. As children ask, what is this mother? So she said, This is “NAIE ADDER TRADER”. We started calling tailor advertising tag to “NAIE ADDER TRADER”
Life has passed. Now we have grown up. The tag above the clothes was unintentionally observed, And we don’t feel ashamed at all saying tag to “NAIE ADDER TRADER”. We don’t feel ashamed that we are speaking wrong even though we are speaking wrong because such a pronunciation does not exist in the dictionary.
A similar incident took place in our house. My father brought a raincoat. My mother did not know name. She said, “Where did you get this “VAPOUR FLUIE”?
Now whenever I go to the market and start buying raincoat, I ask the shopkeeper to give me VAPOUR FLUIE. Although I am a doctor, I should use the best pronunciation, but it is not. The words spoken by my mother are subconsciously attached and are more important than the words in the dictionary.
And I was thinking that maybe dictionaries existed. That’s how it happened. From these two examples I want to make it clear that the words of the parents are imprinted on the minds of the people in such a way that they do not disappear all their lives.
Parents who are unhappy with their children and think that our children have not reached these standards as far as we want to see them, you know that what you are saying is that your offspring are storing it in their subconscious, and it is happening naturally.
Teach your children as much as you can. These are the assets of your DNA as well as your words.
