Children Develop By Imitating Adults

Dr. Michael LaitmanA question I received on how to raise children:

Question: When my three year old son sees me doing something, he immediately wants to join me and do the same thing. Sometimes this bothers me; I want him to go play on his own while I finish working or doing something at home. My wife says it’s important for my son to do these things with me, and I feel that she’s right, but I cannot convince myself of this.

Answer: This is very important because it creates a connection between you, teaches your son and develops him. Actually, this is the only way that a person can develop – by imitating others.
