What are your values?
I believe values are imposed upon an individual during their childhood from elders within the family. It is not until one is exposed to different cultures that may question the values they were taught to believe in. For instance, children should speak only when spoken to; no washing clothes on Sunday; kitchen needs to be clean by 8p.m.; always have traditional dinners on holidays. No company of the opposite sex after 10p.m; must bring the New Year in at church. If your grades are not in order no extra activities.
Which of these values are/were also held by your parents?
Every last one of them was ignition from my parents. I realize that as children we do not understand these views, but as one gets older they start making sense and you learned to appreciate them. It is like a road map, if you get off track, then you always have somewhere to start over.

What influenced you to hold values not held by your parents?
Our parents raise children the way society/culture permitted. But as we get older we learn different methods that are acceptable to society at that present time and will deliver the same outcome.
What sort of life-style do you want for yourself?

But, there is one thing for sure if we treat individuals has we would like to be treated, life would be a lot easier.
Is this the same life-style as that of your parents? Why, or why not?
Yes, my grandmother lived a Christian lifestyle and she is the reason I try not to treat people as I would like to be treated. She would...
