Mothers Are Key Influencers

A study from the School of Behavioural Science at the University of Melbourne in Australia found that mothers "are the most important people in the lives of young adults, and their children do care what they think."

Here's the breakdown --
  • 40% - mothers
  • 25% - fathers
  • 17 % - romantic partner
  • 12% - friend
  • 6% - sibling
Says Associate Professor Jennifer Boldero, "This survey tells us that mothers are still clearly having an impact on their children well into adulthood."

With this survey's results in mind, it is unquestionably important that mothers influence their children for good. And the environment is one area where mothers can have priceless impact in terms of creating an eco-friendly and safe home environment and raising children who care about the planet and their individual impact on the planet. Imagine the possibilities!
