While experts disagree slightly on the specifics, most academics in the field of early childhood development agree that the core of our personality is formed by the time we are five years old. When my mom gets pissed at me for being the condescending asshole that I often am, I like to lovingly remind her that the formative years of my life were spent largely hanging out with her at home. I am nothing more than the product of her parenting.
See what I mean about being a condescending asshole.
The truth is that all of what is kind, patient and empathetic in me came from my mother and I am forever thankful for her influence in my life.
That's how I roll,
