It's not my fault!

Research proves that the effect of parenthood on adult outcomes ranges from small to zero. Studies show that parents do have a substantial effect on the parent –child relationship, as in how their kids feel about and remember them. But parents have little or no effect on overall happiness or personality. In other words, if people in therapy had grown up with very different families, they would probably be blaming that family for all their mistakes and bad habits too. So, what happened to teaching your kids to develop a positive attitude?
