Parental actions, as it states personal and family values, established the standard for their kids. Though, the older an teen becomes, the more he or she explores and questions whether the parental comportment is positive indication of the values that the parent has educated them. If the parent's performance conflicts with the parent's words, the teen openly or covertly rejects both the parent and the importance. The growing mind of the young allows him or her to obtain different standards and behaviors than they absorb from their parents. When a parent has been deceitful by actions that clash with the values which they have trained their child, the grown up child must continue to find a dissimilar value. If that kid decently practices a value, then that value will be accepted by the next generation. The contrary also occurs.

Always. A parents behavior is always an influence on their children, but some children rebel or they try as hard as possible to not be like their parents. I am not like my mother and I am not like my father. I might look a lot like my father, but I did not want to be an Engineer or a Therapist like him, and I didn't want to be a Clerical Accountant like my mother. I am pretty different from my parents when it comes to that. I like English and History, which really separates me from them.

Parental values contribute hugely to a child's development, particularly the first three years of life. Not only demonstaring yourviews and values in real life, but explaining to your children as they get older, why you have such views. Why do so many teenagers rebel against parental views? Sometimes the peer group pressure is so strong, and if the child has not been brought up to also have strong values, and to have confidence, they are far less likely to rebel. 90% of the serious issues we have from teenagers, stems from how they were brought up

The parent is the main and most direct role model for their children. Family values are set down by the parent whether they realize it or not. It the basis by which children learn in their very earliest days. This is one reason why children raising is very exasting work.

For the most part I agree that children learn by example. However, the opposite can also be true..there are some behaviors that kids will react by saying..My mother/father used to do that and I will never ever be that way.

I think children always try to mimic whatever their parents do especially at very early age. They copy all their parents actions and speech. It is therefore really important for the parents to behave exemplary in the presence of the kids so the kids have a good example to copy from. Some parents may think the kids are not smart enough to realise this but they are usually smarted than they think.

I totally agree with you on this,, my daughter is only three and i knew she was smart but not as smart as she is. she picks up everything. so i have to watch what i say around her as well as others that are around. just the other day my boyfriends mom was watching her while we went to the store and we have a plasma and an x box 360 and she didn't know how to get it to the right input it had to be on or how to work the xbox to put a movie in. and sure enough my daughter knew how to do all of it. its crazy what kids can do at this young of an age. it amazes me.. :)

I have told my friend not to underestimate his kid and not to take them for granted because their brains just absorb everything instantly. So there is need to be careful around them because they are learning too fast.

The baby also overhears their mother’s speeches and their lyrics and starts to mimic noises and tones. Sooner or later learning how to talk. Though once this happens. It's very vital for the parents to impart their kid’s good words and try to leave out the wicked.

Parents influence expressively how their children turn out in time. If a child is brought up in a quarrelsome family, the kid may grow up becoming a quarrelsome adult. This is likely because the child expended the growing and forming stage of life with parents who have shown no healthier way to live.

Parents certainly have a significant influence on their child. The child tends to imitate their parents actions and behaviors. However, even if the parents teaches and sets good example for the child; the child might get into bad peer company which can undo all the good values taught to him by his parents. So, basically a child is like a clay that can be molded either ways by his/her parents, extended family, friends, classmates etc.

Yup I agree with you and according to studies by some schools, experts have determined there is no real indication of what causes a habit or imitate, but they have inferred most habits are cultured. It may start as early as your kid smiling back at you, captivating their first steps, or wanting to brush your hair. They watch and they absorb from their parents.

I would agree what you said here, because parents responsible more or less their children behavior in the future. If they act as a bad influence to their children, they should should responsible for their children bad behavior in the future. That is the life of it.

Very true...I have a slightly different example. Both my husband and I smoked. As a result my kids swore they would never smoke because it was 'stinky' and they never did. Thank goodness my kids were smarter than we were...I eventually quit.

hi, the knowledge of a child will come first from home from their parents,they will adapt what they seen inside of the house and they will bring it until they grow up,because this is what they have seen while they growing,so the behavior of parents will really affect their children behavior.

I agree with this. If a parent is a bully to others then the child thinks its ok to do the same.

Hiii pogi You are absolutely right parents behavior influence the nature of their child if parents are always fight in front of their child then after some years they also start this fight with mother or father. This is duty of parents they should know what is good for child and what is bad for child's future..
