I will begin by defining the motion.

'Personality' means the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character.

'Children' in this context means a son or daughter under 21 years old.

Not only the guidance of parents, but also the experiences they go through may have affected them and the way they act. Children are independent and they don't always agree with what their parents say.

Personality characteristics established in childhood tend to linger and may persist with a few modifications that occur during the maturation process. The intricacies of human development are far too complex to flatly state that parental influence is solely responsible for the outcome of a child's personality. Personalty is also shaped by a child's choices and actions and the experiences he encounters as he matures into an adult.

Parental values and the behaviors parents model have a major impact on their children's emotional state, development of self and how they act socially and in significant relationships. Developmental psychologist Erik Erikson, in his psychosocial developmental theory, maintains that it's essential for an adolescent to have the freedom to explore his options and make autonomous commitments to achieve his unique identity.

And you could have just redefined the motion with your own words. Children, in this context, does not particularly mean kids. Child(ren) may also describe a relationship with a parent (such as sons and daughters of ANY age). How ironic of you to call me a fool.

Haha okay then Dr Phil, well perhaps you should read what you've already written. "'Children' in this context means a son or daughter under 21 years old." So, you're not talking about sons and daughters of ANY age, as you so elegantly put. And ironic 'of' me doesn't make sense. Brush up on your grammar and then I might read your next oh-so intellectually appeasing essay. Pathetic.

Con is presenting a pretty pathetic argument. If he could actually properly define his argument without getting angry because Pro points out his mistakes I might be able to take him seriously. But honestly, his second argument is a complete contradiction of his first. Should be a clear win for Pro, someone who actually knows what hes talking about.
