All parents raise their children to their own beliefs and morals
All children look up to their parents
/The behavior of all children will model that of their parents’ behaviors.
15 year old Christian Lunsford from Oklahoma sought out to prove this valid argument wrong when he found out that his father robbed a widow who was going to visit her husband’s grave. When he saw his father’s mugshot on the news, Lunsford got a hold of 78 year old Tona Herndon, the woman who his father had recently mugged. They met in person and he shared a heartfelt apology and offered to repay the woman of the money that his father stole from her.
Christian knew that many people would infer that since his father was a criminal, that he would follow in his footsteps. He proved that this argument, although valid, is not factually correct because although parents can have some influence on the child’s personality, everybody is an individual and can have a different perception of right and wrong no matter who raised them.
