I was raised by my dad and despite only seeing my mum once a month as a child and much less once I hit my teens, I still ended up quite like her. I'm more similar to my dad but much of the things I like or don't like are the same as my mum, even without her influence! 
What about you?

    My looks and my hobbies and interests are very different to my parents’! Also a lot of my views aren’t shared though some are. I do have some traits in common with them but I think only in so much as everyone shares some kind of trait with everyone else.

    I'm a healthy mixture of both, thankfully didn't get my dad's huge nose :)

    My dad was a lifelong socialist and I get that from him, but being lucky enough to have been brought up by both my parents I get most of who/what I am from both of them.

    No thankfully, my parents were older parents, me being youngest of 7. I've raised my kids differently, they kinda had a victorian attitude, like if we were fed and clothed etc,  that's all that mattered, they kinder didn't guide in anything, don't remember them at any parents evenings at school, you just got on with it. No encouragement to do well in exams or incentive. 
    With mine I've been to parents evenings and everything and emotionally supportive and encouragement. I mean it could of been worse I guess

    Unfortunately, i'm my mother's double which is horryfying. I showed my grandson a picture of us both taken about 6 years ago. He thought for a couple of minutes and then said "2 nannies." He's only 2 bless him but it was funny.
    Thankfully, i'm nothing at all like her as a person. One of the biggest differences between us is my children and grandson are my whole world.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It's good both of you were able to break the cycle @poppy123456 and @Sandy_123 I'm sure both of you have kids who very much know you love them and how important they are to you <3

    I think they were born in a era where things were done differently like 19 20s,30s and I have to consider those are the reasons

    My parents are a bit younger but I do see how their own upbringing resulted in how they were with me.

    That's good leaving maternity leave late as means she'll get more of it on the other side with her baby. Congratulations and I can't wait to hear update once she's arrived safe <3

    They are, for sure! Yes, i agree with you there. Before my grandson was born people used to tell me how wonderful it is being a nanny but i didn't realise just how wonderful it really is. <3
