Upbringing

Do you hold the same or similar values as your parents, family? We like to think that we are all freethinking, but don’t always appreciate the impact of our upbringing and may hold the same or similar values as those who ‘brought us up’. We mostly think that we are ‘right’ and you will no doubt have convincing arguments about why you hold certain views and think in certain ways.

As well as exploring our own long held beliefs and attitudes it’s also useful to imagine what it would be like to hear certain negative views and attitudes from the other person’s perspective; as women from men, as black people from white people, as a disabled person from a non-disabled person.
