What common traits and characteristics do your children share?
It can be difficult to determine when children are in early childhood because the differences between children are often more apparent than the similarities.
As children move into primary school and beyond through the secondary-school years the similarities are easier to spot, and they are important because they indicate the values and characteristics you value as a parent.
Children invariably adopt the dominant values they are exposed to within their family in childhood. Each child in a family may display those values to different degrees, but they are drivers of their behavior and attitudes.
So, if each child in a family has a high work ethic, even if to varying degrees, then high work ethic is most likely part of your family frame.
Take a moment to reflect on the commonalities between your children, or if applicable, the values and attitudes you share with your own siblings. These will be indicative of the impact of the parenting that they, or you, received. The predominant values that kids learn in their family usually stay for life. Those values will be stronger in some children than others, but all children will relate to them.
