Maybe We Shouldn’t Always Listen To Mom
Lucky am I. I get to talk for a living. Lately, I’ve been wondering where my words are coming from. Seems the older I get, the more things are starting to sound familiar. I blame my mom.
If you’ve ever been told “you sound just like your mother,” you’re not alone. A survey of one-thousand people finds most women — and some men — start morphing into their moms at age 32. Roughly 40 percent of women polled said they were 32 when they started using their mothers’ old sayings, like “sit up straight” or “if you keep making that face, it’ll get stuck like that.” Other women inherited traits like worrying more, stockpiling groceries or watching soap operas. A third of men admitted becoming more like their moms.
