i am trying to translate an interview. it contains a phrase i don't understand:
"it is only natural for children to want to make themselves."
Re: make oneself??
That is not proper English. You can "make something of yourself" or "make yourself breakfast" (for example) but you cannot "make yourself" (unless you are an omnipotent deity, I suppose).
