Like father like son

And he did what was right in the sight of the LORD, yet not like his father David; he did everithing as his father Joash had done.

2 Kings 14:3[NKJV]

We know that parents are the best rolemodels. Even though we tend to negate it, what our parents allready reached is most probable to be reached by us too. We are strongly influenced by our mom and dad, we are fast to apply their strenghts as well as their weaknesses to our own identity and character. What can we do to conserve all the good attributes, while throwing away every bad inheritance? Maybe like an apple you need to be carried out of the shadow of the branches of your parents to develop your full potential - to procreate properly.
