The fearless Carolin Emcke

I got it from my mother

Carolin Emcke 1As a parent, I often wonder what qualities one might, if at all possible, wish to instil, or inspire, in a son or daughter. A short list might include: curiosity, openness, stamina, wit – and a sense of fairness, or justice. The question is: how much of a role do parents actually play in encouraging such virtues in their children? A good deal, it seems, if my latest guest on Talking Germany is anything to go by. “I’m fearless,” says Carolin Emcke, “and I got it from my mother.”
