Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.

The values and morals that my parents have instilled in me are numerous. Included in the list are The Golden Rule, respecting everyone, your spouse needs to love God, and be polite to your elders. When people have thoroughly annoyed me, I have applied the Golden Rule and fought hard against my instinct to bite back. If someone is being made fun of, I refuse to join because that would be disrespectful of that person. These will help me in the future to pick the right lifestyle, spouse, and even in raising any children. I have the final say in sculpting myself and how I live my life. I am only primarily guided by my parents until I move out. Then I have to make all the decisions about what I see, hear, do, how I dress, etc. These choices will, in the long run, form me as a person.
