I cannot entirely agree with this, I would not say it is partially true; but I would have to say that there are other influences that would determine an "inner voice".

Ya, but most of the time they call it nagging.

That's gotta be because we have to tell them over, and over, and over again.....

I do understand what this is trying to say. Part of it is true. No matter how we talk to our children it always influences what they think in their own mind. Sometimes if you talk down to your children it will make them feel as if they were nothing. In other cases it may make them feel empowered as if they can do anything and they will be determined to prove you wrong. If we speak good to our children they may feel good about themselves and feel more motivated by the love you are giving them. However, I also feel that children will develop their own inner voice based on every single thing they have witnessed in their life. Events such as deaths, how they see you cope with things, school, work, friends and other family memebers and of course television and technology. Just by one simple thing happening to your child it will give them a different way of thinking about things in their own mind. Their inner voice is entirely their own, you just play a small influence on it.

I believe that this is somewhat true.The way we talk to our children is certainly an influence on their inner voices. Most importantly it is what they go through on their own that determines what they feel. Things at school,, death, how they see you react, and television are things that all play a role. It is up to them how they view something. They may ask questions but they take from your answer and compute it in their own way for understanding.

I also believe this is somewhat true. Of course, other things will influence their inner voice, but the way they are talked to while growing up should influence it also. I just use myself as an example and think of the way my parents talked to and acted with me. I believe that contributed to they way I act, speak, think,etc. today.

I totally agree with that because every time I make a tough decision I hear my parent's voice in my head making me think twice about my choices that I'm going to make.

I believe it is how you say something, like the tone in your voice, your logic behind your reasoning, rationality, and truly understanding what your child is talking about that determines how your children react to what you say. Sometimes my mom would try to explain something to me but the way she said it made me feel like she had no clue what I was talking about and it just became another lecture that went through one ear and out the other.

one of the main channels that children learn from are their parents. specially when dealing with conflict with others, and what side to take in certain situations.
