Description

Abstract

Parents are transmitters of attitudes that the child adopts in forming a self-image. Our personal narratives are initially largely constructed through our relationship with our parents or other significant adults. The relationship that we form with our parents is elemental to the concept of self, forming the base of our identity. Neurologist Oliver Sacks (2001:4) proffers that the world does not have a predetermined structure: our structuring of the world is our own—our brains create structures in the light of our experiences. What happens in our minds and bodies works synergistically to give meaning to our lives. Our physical and mental experiences cannot be separated from our sense of self. This social construction of human behavior can also be self-destructive.
