It is not possible to red the Bible and not see it has a strong emphasis on the lives of people from generation to generation. If you really want to understand yourself and your offspring, do your family tree and draw a genogram.
The genogram shown here is pretty complicated and so are most family trees. You can trace your family tree pretty easily now because of the internet. We can buy a program that allows us to look up our ancestors and then do a geneaology all our own. Try it.
My book, How to Be Me in My Family Tree explains how to assess the family dynamics. Buy it and be happy!
