As you've gotten older, what things do you find yourself doing that your parents used to do?
There are certain things that our parents used to do that would embarrass us and make us cringe and we swore blind that we would never do those things ourselves.
I see my children cringe when I argue with idiots on the television and I remember thinking my Father was bonkers for doing the same thing when I was a child.
nice question! I must say sometimes i'm acting like my father was. Sometimes when i argue with my wife, the way i speak is very similar. And wife says: "You sound like your father", loool
Very good question. You know, as children we didn't like our parents always cautioning us to "be careful..." or at least I didn't for I always felt I was observant enough and in command of things very well myself. And yet it seems I find myself cautioning my children and grandchildren in a very similar way as I was when a child...
In his last few years, my father dissociated from the degrading human society, to which he was earlier closely associated through his political affiliations and activities. He engaged himself in studies of books of his choice. As at 63 now, I also feel disgusted with anti-social animals, called humans, all around me, and concentrating on my studies, research and writings.
well, i've found that i do what my Grandparents liked to do.... Sunday drives ... and yes, going only 60 mph! Or less!
Parents are the caregivers, significant others besides the indisputable genetic affiliation. We are basically a product of genetics and environment,hence the great nature vs nurture psychology debate. If that's true, we inherit and even copy a lot from our parents--the good and the bad.
Thanks for asking this question.
The one thing I remember saying I would never say to my kids that my mother said was "If your friends jumped off a cliff would you do it too?" and guess what! My kids are sick of hearing me say that to them LOL. Alot of my mother's terminology rubbed off on me, while my dad's sense of humor hit me. Its a win win situation now that I'm older and appreciate what they went through more.
I fine my self cooking the sunday dinner for the whole family and the reason I became a chef is because my mother stayed in the kitchen.
I just love this question it is so fun!! For the most part I was a well behaved child, but as most children I would occasionally have my hyper moments. During these times my mother would recite my whole name, first, middle, and last. As an adult I often have a good chuckle just thinking about it as I always said I would never do that when I had my own children. Lo and behold I find myself following in my mothers footsteps when using all three names with my own children. Thanks for the great question.
Being more proactive about home and personal security makes me just like my dad.

What are your thoughts about not having children?So many people want to have children, and they question those couples as to when they are going to have children? Are they really asking "when not?" or why not?
