The best teacher is the surrounding environment. Not only the children but the adults develop themselves according to the surroundings. The case gets critical with children as they are not aware of what is right and what is wrong to fit in the society or to earn place in the society. Children whose parents are alcoholic also take alcohols, while children whose parents abuse also abuse.
It is not only about parents. When Johnny was five years old the environment at his home was full of violence. Not only did his father beat up his mother but also used abusive language.The result was the same. Johnny used the same words used by his father and enjoyed dominating and beating up his classmates.
When Johnny’s teacher called his parents regarding Johnny’s arrogant behaviour they realized their mistakes. This is a common observation however if you observe deeply there is another common observation you may find out. Parents that are emotional have their children emotional as well.
Probably, this is why the caste system originatedin India. If the child has seen the father and his father’s friends practice fighting skills, the child would also want to become a fighter as he would know the pros and cons of becoming a fighter through his father’s experience.
Palmistry and numerology prove this fact. The shapes of hands or other signs on the palm are similar in the parents and the children. In case of numerology similar numbers are in the dates of birth of the entire family. Where the parents are good but the surrounding environment is not even then the child has lot to learn.
For example if the surrounding environment is full of businessmen and the discussion going by him are business discussions, the child would certainly develop an interest in business. While discussing try to keep the children away from violence, abusive terms and anything reflecting inhuman element.
