The University of Michigan found out when professional attitudes of parents program their attitudes toward the work of their children
The Michigan study showed that these settings are largely inherited from parents. But not directly, but with some peculiarity:
1. The orientation of the father on a career will stimulate such an orientation in children, but the mother’s workaholism is not. This can be explained by the fact that the participants in the experiments are mature enough people, and at the time of their childhood, the installation for a career was considered natural for men and for women.
2. From the mother in many ways depends on whether the child will continue to treat slave only as a source of livelihood. If at the age of adolescence, children have a warm and intimate relationship with their mother, then they are less likely to perceive work so pragmatically, they want something more than money from her.
3. If the professional settings of both parents are the same, then the chance that they will be passed on to the child becomes higher. But only if it is about work that is perceived as a vocation: a child who sees how parents reject a purely pragmatic approach to work, and puts the money incentives below the moral and social ones.
