    the meaning of adukt conversation

    Dear all,

    In the passage below, what does "adult conversation" mean? Does it mean something like a serious conversation between adults and children over how children should behave?

    "When I was a child,there was a good deal of adult conversation to the effect that children had to learn to be unselfish. It was a word that I came to dislike intensely because it always turned out to involve something I did not want to do..."

    Thank you!

    The text is from an English textbook published in Japan. I don't know where it is originally from, though.
