Una llamada de atención a los mayores

Recibí hace algunas semanas un paquete con dos libros que había solicitado a un amigo mexicano que estudia en España. Uno de los libros, aun inconcluso en su lectura y del cual hablaré con detalle en otra ocasión, tiene por título “Una llamada de atención. Carta a los mayores sobre los niños de hoy”, cuyo autor, Philippe Meirieu, es un sabio profesor francés que enseña en la Universidad Lumière-Lyon 2.

De Meirieu he leído todo lo que he encontrado, desde su “Frankenstein educador”, porque me resulta uno de los expertos más provocadores y originales, y su sencillez rigurosa es una invitación ineludible para quienes nos dedicamos a la docencia.

Meirieu ha escrito a expertos y a profesores, nada raro, pero me sorprendió gratamente encontrar el título que comento, dirigido a quienes está escrito: los adultos, los padres y madres. Se trata de 18 pequeños textos, una amena introducción y las conclusiones. En la “Introducción” se pregunta, y desde allí empieza a darnos vueltas en la cabeza: ¿Qué mundo vamos a dejarle a nuestros hijos? ¿Qué hijos vamos a dejarle al mundo?

La obra es un extraordinario recordatorio de que la educación de los hijos es responsabilidad de los mayores, nos demos cuenta o no; que ellos aprenden por nuestros ejemplos y hechos, no por nuestras palabras. Que las quejas por su mala educación, sus malos modales o pésimos hábitos son atribuibles a nosotros. Que los muchachos no son los inventores de la mentira o la simulación, que la aprendieron de los mayores.

Dice Don Philippe en el cierre de la Introducción: “Nuestro futuro no está escrito, y eso determina nuestro imperativo: educar a nuestros hijos para que lo escriban”. La pregunta, pienso entonces, es sencilla: ¿cómo los estamos educando?, es decir, ¿con esta educación, qué futuro podrán escribir?

    Received a package with two books that he sent a Mexican friend who lives in Spain.

    Have you read all that aencontrado of Meirieu.

    The book is a reminder that the education of children is the responsibility of the elders.

    That complaints for misconduct are reflections of the elderly.

  14. RICARDO GOMEZ GUERRERO 1B dice:

    I agree not only to talk about education to children but also when you want respect, or anything which expect a positive response, the best way is with actions that demonstrate how you should do things.

  15. Education is a mutual responsability. Adults have to support the study of the young people. Adult people would like a better future to the young people. Because everybody want a better country.
