The Influences That Parents Have On Their Children Influence is a word that can explain many things in todays world Influence explains why people do the things they do A childs influence on how heshe perceives life will stay with them for the rest of hisher life But a more important question to ask is where does that influence come Does it come from the parents of that child or does it come from that childs peer group Although children are influenced from the outside world ultimately a child learns right from wrong good from bad love and caring from their parents I hope to prove to you the reader that influence does in fact come from the parents more than what people think First we must talk about the influence that comes genetically The parents DNA already have influenced a child from birth The child can be shy outgoing perceptive or absent-minded but those characteristics will be shown later in the childs lifetime If you look at a family you can tell what types of characteristics the children have Then you can ask the parents who in their family have those same traits I am sure that the parents can think of someone in their family if not them self to answer that question What about the influence a child receives after birth if any from their parents Right after birth takes place the mother typically shows the child love by holding the baby kissing it singing it to bed etc Showing a child love from the day the child is born and continuously throughout childhood will have a better positive effect on the child later in their own life Judith Rich Harris in her book The Nurture Assumption Why Children Turn Out the Way They Do Parents Matter Less The You Think and Peers Matter More believes that the love a parent gives has no effect on the child later in life
