We never observe that closely. If we do, every human is the perfect reflection of someone particular or a combination of a few of that certain age. If explained easily, we are the resemblance of the person we admire or grown-up looking up to during the particular age period where we currently are.
Even if no child is influenced, all of them will be the same. We should only answer their questions and fuel their curiosity to explore. Ideal parents should only let their kids know about the outcome of every action and not influence their decision.
They will be if we stop trying to drive them. We should only be guiding them and teaching them about the results without telling them what to do and what not to. Parents should inspire their children’s to not only make decisions but, also be responsible for the result of the action that they have judged to be most appropriate according to the situation. This should always be like that right?
Now, do you remember that we are the most intelligent creatures on this earth? We just don’t learn by listening. We actually learn by observing. To be accurate, we actually observe what the person is actually doing according to the situation. Firstly, if we don’t mean it, it’s not going to matter what we have said. Secondly, If we say something and do something else, it will send the wrong message. Lastly, if we say something is bad and do that anyway, our kids will follow that anyway. Therefore, we need to be the person who we want our next generation to be. The fruit tastes according to how the soil is. Every tree turns in the direction of the sunlight. You are presenting life to the universe. And it should be at its best. So, start thinking if you haven’t already!
