Which Is the Greater Influencer of a Positive Mindset and Attitude? Family or School?

I think the family is the greater influencer but in some cases the school plays a greater role in one’s life. What do you think?

School does play an important role in a persons life but I really think family has the greatest influence on the life of a child and parents can be the greater influencer of a positive mindset.

I think family has a huge influence in a person’s attitude and mindset, but schools and friends also have the same impact.

Edward Duffy answered 4 weeks ago

Yes Yasmin, I forgot to mention friends. The people that you associate with will have a direct impact on your thinking. I unfortunately do not know many people that share my vision for wanting a better life that does not involve working hard so I have to keep my self going by reminding myself what I really want. This is why I am here.

the family is the greatest influencer of a positive mindset and attitude .the major agent of socialization is  family which influences behaviour and personality of an individual

I think it is completely different for everyone and the circumstances they are in. I saw my dad working hard and long hours which gave me a great work ethic compared to others and helped me push forward. School was a stepping stone – I needed to get an education and qualifications to get to the career i desired. As I got older I had time to step back and reflect and realized working hard is great but working smarter is even better.

Family has the greatest influence on one’s mental development and attitude. Since almost everyone, in their early years, learned everything from their family.
But in the later years, the community in which one participate and the books which one read has the most influent on his positive attitude.

All of you have the same point of view concerning this question. The family play an important role in a person’s attitude and mindset. If you’re not well educated by your family you may have trouble in your life.what we get from schools have a great influence too. But what about those who didn’t go to school? Parents, friends,even good neighbor have a great influence in person’s mindset.

To me, it’s the family that is the greatest influencer of mindset and attitude. The first class in a person’s life starts at home.

As you said which one has a greater influence in a positive mindset and attitude. Both parents and school have great influence but family’s influence is greater.what we can get a school is to complete what we already have at home.

Family is according to me incomparable,  children always want to be like their parents.

Nnaemeka Victor answered 4 hours ago

After reading your answers, more people chose the family as the greater influencer. But there are some people that had an awful upbringing but their lives were changed through school.
