Like Mother, Like Daughter?
October 28, 2008 2:21pm CST
I have always heard growing up like Mother, like Daughter. I on one hand think im the opposite of my mother. Im more like my father, I believe in many ways. My mother, is more cautious and serious. Me on the other hand, Im more sarcastic, and that comes with taking chances,and not being so serious. But according to my father I act more more like my mother as I get older. So is it true... Do we act more like our mother as we get older? Share your thoughts, on this one with me if you would.

Hi ginnypetree, it seems to be that way, because I am just like my mum in many ways, and yes sons are just like their fathers, it is just our makeup I suppose or maybe when we were very young we look up to our parents and imitate them ans thus when we are adults we attend to be like them. Tamara

I have always been more like my Mom, I think. Although I do have some of my Dad's characteristics. My Mom doesn't like being in crowded places. As I get older, I find that I like them less and less, too. I find myself saying things, then turning around to see if my Mom is there. I catch glimpses of my self in a window,or mirror and immediately see my Mom. So, not only do I act more like her all the time, I look more and more like her, as well.

Is it possible that you stay with someone and not imbibe qualities fromthat person in your growing years? if yu are brough tup by German parents,you imbibe their values and outlove, if you ar brought up by American parents you will learn things as per their culture and their outlook to life. If the same child is brought up by Japanese parents, the child will imbibe Japanese culture and values. you always learn a lot fromteh perosn you are close to. Looks are diffferent. They are inherited, but your outlook and behaviour changes depending on your circumstances. Heard the joke about a Chinese couple who started learning German after they adopted a new born German baby. When asked why they were learning German, they replied that their adopted child ws growing up and would soon begin to speak.
