  • I say that simply because kids know when they're parents are stressed.

  • I think it is very possible. Generally kids to tend to act like their parents.

  • I think behaviour like that is learned, not inherited, but either way ya I think it's possible....

  • I know that when I'm moody around my dd she knows it and she's crabby to...when mama's not happy nobody's happy...[thankfully that's not all the time, but when it happens both of us girls are crabby] I try to be as easy-going as possible so that the house is peaceful hehe
    I agree with SaraP1989 kids totally know when their parents are stressed

  • temperment is herditiery, so yes. It can also be influced by upbring. So that can effect it too. My duaghter is very easy going, like me. But also very outgoing like my husband.

    My brothers and I, well I can see different pieces of both our parents and grandparents in us.
