I guess kids learn many things from parents, both negative and positive. Is that perhaps because they opt in their life-plans to experience such lives? I'm not suggesting it is but simply throwing it out as a discussion point. Whether negative behaviors are carried over into the so-called afterlife is moot but based on what I've heard there's every opportunity there of dropping old and negative values and living a very different and uplifting life.I suppose you're right....my guess is that that's most often the case for people who grew up in very dysfunctional households with a lot of conflict, or who had relationships with a lot of conflict. Maybe it gets kind of hard-wired into them, which is a shame. If there is an afterlife, I very much doubt it continues there, though (just my opinion).
