(Not So) Common Sense

There are a lot of ways to say it.
“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
“Monkey see, monkey do.”
It’s pretty simple, really. Children mimic their parents. Oh sure, there are a few years thrown in there when they behave as though they don’t even know us. It seems that their friends are their entire world, and we are simply ATMs and cab drivers. But make no mistake. They’re watching, and they take notes.
