You may remember a few months ago I was impressed when Druidling V2.0f was using an electron microscope at school (she's 14).

Well, this evening, over the dinner table I innocently asked her what she did at school today...
Stem Cells!
I shit you not.

Personal opinion mine only. I believe that children are affected by what they see as their parents or care givers interests.

Lots of science, the child becomes a science sponge.

Fashion, Clothes horse.

Lots of setting in front of Television, Couch potato.

MoMan, I'm sure parents have an influence, but only at the margins.

Druidling V2.0f is the one who asked to have her 8th birthday party at the science museum and planetarium. Even before she could walk, she would seek out TVs, stereos, etc and push all the buttons, just to see what would happen.

Druidling V1.0f, who grew up with the same geeky dad, never showed any such inclination.

Bottom line: we are who we are.

Of course, it's still important that you recognized it, and let her pursue it. Some miserable folks would discourage that because "that's not what the popular kids do" or "don't you want to be a prom queen like Mommy was?" (And I know some folks who turned out well enough in spite of receiving such nonsense...but I'm certain some people would just give in.) That, and it's become a lot cooler (or at least more acceptable) to be a geek these days. Back in my day (*groan*), being interested in math/science was not exactly a fine way to win friends (though it makes one rather value the good ones).

Anyway, a job well done!
