Are you reminded of your parents when you see yourself? When some people grow up, they become like their parents. They tend to adapt their parent’s manners, attitude and the way they live. That is why it is important for parents to be good examples to their children as they grow up. Usually, we become the people we are surrounded with. That is why it is important for parents to surround their children with good people and with good memories.
All About the Song
George Jones‘ song “The Man He Was” is a good example for folks out there to show good things to their kids. In the song, the character said that he is becoming like his old man. He remembers how much his father loved his mother and how good he was to his community. When he was growing up, he never sees his father hurt his mom or hurt him. His father may be drinking, but he never gets drunk to the point of shouting and hurting anyone. When his father teaches them good manners or character, he talks to them in a gentle way as to not make them feel afraid. The narrator’s father became a good example for him to grow into a good man.
