What Traits Are Your Kids Getting from You?
“Oh, he looks just like you!” “He has your eyes.” We all hear these phrases when newborns come into this world, but what traits are your children really getting from you?
Research has shown that children get their traits by “modeling” or imitation, rather than solely from hereditary factors.
- Artistic sensibility is developed after being exposed to opportunities where the child can learn how to express themselves.
- A hotheaded parent, does not necessarily equal the same in a child. After changing their behaviour, parents did notice a different in their children’s way of acting.
Let your child know the difference between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour; it is not a matter of genetic traits, but rather acquired ones.
