Who all is going? What are you going to ask her? This is such a neat opportunity!

I'm going to ask her about this statement:

(On giving advice to the younger generation)

"They can't hear it b/c it's in a different language, a language we learn over time , the language of experience cut with failure, triumph, and tedium. "

I'm going to ask her if she means we should just quit trying to give our kids advice altogether or perhaps just try to word it differently so that they "hear" it? And if so, what wording does she suggest?
