Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters

When you make major decisions, do you think about whether your parents would approve or whether they’d make the same decision? If you do, how controlled are you by what they might decide?

For instance, the big election is Tuesday. I know people whose vote is heavily influenced by their parents and their upbringing. Yet, these same people don’t seem to consider their parents when making other major decisions. Why is that?

Why do our family roots only matter sometimes? Or, for you, do they matter all the time or not at all? Do your siblings, other relatives, and friends share the same perspective?
