Some people think that family members are the most important influence on young adults, others believe that friends are the most important influence. Which do you agree with? Explain why.
I believe that family members are the most important influence on young adults because for one thing, they are the first people in your life that you will interact with.
I never had friends until I was about five years old, but I knew my family verywell and they helped shape my morals before I ever had any friends.
For another thing, even when you have friends, you still spend more time with your family and because you love them, they will have a greater influence on you than friends ever could. Many times in my life, I was faced with tough choiceswhere friends wanted me to do bad things and if it weren’t for the influence of my family, I would probably be in jail right now.
That’s why I think family members are a more important influence.
