    I found this interesting. Parents, protect your children's eyes and ears. I'll just copy the article:

    I remember a commercial in the early seventies that showed a man and his son laying in the grass against a tree. The dad lit up a cigarette and put his hands behind his head to relax. The next thing it showed was the little kid, maybe 4 or 5, picking up the cigarettes and getting one. We knew this stuff years ago. We could have saved the money.

    FYI, breast milk is best for babies. So let's not spend a lot of money to figure that out. Also, prayer really helps people.

    There are studies that have been done in the past that scientifically prove that breast milk is better for babies than formula. We've spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to determine that what God created is better than what man created.

    And that has what to do with children mirroring their parents behavior?

    I was stating that we are wasting money on studies that have been done in the past and do not need to be redone.

    This thread started by saying a study had been completed that says children mimic their parents behavior. That's why I referenced the commercial from the old days. That's old news. Why did we spend money on a study that proves nothing new?
