Parental impact on children’s decision making

Parental impact on children’s decision making

As a parent, you are the most influential person in your child's life. Your actions, decisions and behaviors shape the way your child thinks, feels and acts. Children are like sponges, soaking up everything that goes on around them. 


They learn from watching and mimicking the people closest to them, especially their parents.


This is why it is crucial for parents to set a positive example for their children to follow.


Children are constantly observing and learning from their parents. When they see you making positive decisions, they will naturally be inclined to do the same. 


For example, if you eat healthy food, exercise regularly and prioritize self-care, your child is more likely to do the same. On the other hand, if you make unhealthy choices, your child may develop the same habits.


Positive decision-making goes beyond just physical health. 


Children also learn important values and beliefs from their parents. For example, if you value honesty and integrity, your child is likely to internalize these values and make decisions that align with them. If you prioritize spending time with your family, your child is likely to do the same. 


The list goes on, but the point is that parents are the ultimate example for their children.


Aside from the practical benefits of positive decision-making, it also helps to build a strong and healthy relationship between parents and children. When children see that their parents are making decisions that prioritize their well-being, they feel valued and loved. This in turn strengthens the bond between parents and children and helps to build trust.


In conclusion, parents are the ultimate example for their children. By making positive decisions, parents can shape their child's behavior, values and beliefs, and build a strong and healthy relationship. So, be mindful of the decisions you make, because they have the power to shape the future of your child.


That’s why we at Fitness Fight Factory really really recommend getting the whole family involved in making positive changes. Our family programs are heavily discounted because we want to make all families healthy, happy, and self defense capable. 


See you on the mats!
