What Kind Of Kids Will (Or Did) You Raise?



Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic what kind of kids will you raise? Kids are one of the greatest gifts of nature to humans. They are very adorable and they need extreme care and love. They are extremely naive and they spend the first few years of their lives watching the world around them. Parents are closest to them and so they learn a hell lot of different things from their parents. Hence it might happen that you would see that kids behaving like their parents.

We inherit not only our genetics but various other habits which we would develop in the later parts of our lives. It is one of the most interesting questions in the field of science. It is what all are the things which we inherit from our parents. There have been several dozens of research papers pointing out that we learn a great deal from our parents. If you take a closer look into the matter then you would realize that sometimes there are deviations to this rule. Kids might behave extremely opposite from their parents.

This might happen due to several reasons like spending time with kids having opposite traits than their parents and believing it to be true. There are many different things which we could learn from our parents but there is an inside out chance that we would be different from our parents. Also, it has also been seen that if a parent has an extreme character trait like for example introversion then the child may not be introverted to that degree like their parents. They would be lean more towards the middle of the spectrum. This happens because of a phenomenon called regression towards the mean.

I hope you liked my short article. If you have any insights into the topic then feel free to share it down into the comments section below. Play the quiz as well and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. I hope to see you in my next article.

“Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
― C.S. Lewis

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
― William Martin, The Parent’s Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents

“We spend the first year of a child’s life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There’s something wrong there.”
― Neil deGrasse Tyson
