LOL - point taken... My goal in life is to NOT become your parent.

Re: Do we become our parents?

Funny... I was reading this in my module today:

"When you realize someone has been you role model, it is important to evaluate what kind of results your role model has gotten, because that will predict what kind of results you will get from following his or her example!"

I think this could well apply on this thread...

I realized today that I have some of my dad's behavior traits

(my dad was a hoarder - I tend towards clutter)

Re: Do we become our parents?

great topic,

I have a kind of a funny story,

When I first got married my wife said to me " if you ever catch me being like my mother stop me". Well about 6 years I noticed when was being just like her mom and remembered her request, so I stopped her and told her she was being like her mom. She was pissed, yelling at me telling me how dare I call her her mom. Today she is very much like her mom But I don't tell her, lesson learned.

Re: Do we become our parents?

I think there's a big possibility on that. Because we are mold by our parents the way they want. There's also a big possibility that we are not be the same as our parents. Because people change.
