I like this take
Found the non-parent
Parent here. Just aware of the correlation between parental effort and behavioural benefits in a child. Also aware there are exceptions and parents and kids with circumstances beyond their control - so it's not a strong view. More a light hearted one.
I'm a parent :: the correlation between a given child and their parents may or may not exist
especially parents of multiple children
Said parental effort
Identical "effort" does not lead to identical outcomes
Or identical children
I see you have no children
Somewhat. However, that would mean that your children all have relatively the same mannerisms, but typically they don't. Having three, I can tell you that each of them is quite different than the others, and there has been little to no change in our parenting or mannerisms.
True, though there's a sliding scale pretty often. Kids are at their worst when routine is disrupted or sensory overload comes into play. A lot of time when you see kids in public places more interesting than a park or a grocery store you're seeing them in a disrupted routine and it's not representative of their day-to-day conduct.
That and the number of people that will only meet parents during what's usually naptime or bedtime and then act shocked when the kid isn't an angel is shockingly high.
I'm the youngest - my brother and sister both were book worms, made good grades, and all the rest of that. I, however, wanted to have fun. My parents had a hard time with that, realizing that I wasn't like my siblings.
