Children are influenced.
You obviously didn't look up the definition of emulation.
to try to equal or excel; imitate with effort to equal or surpass
Now you break the realm of emulation. That's how mom and mom or dad and dad are. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against any of it. If you cannot see it as influential, well then you are as ignorant as they come.

Anyway back to the point. I seriously doubt that even if parents are bad parents and try to influence their children to be of the opposite sex (which in itself is child abuse really) the children will end up being that way. As I have stated before the puberty will tell the truth.
a child's developing mind isn't influenced by parents? It's completely independent of ANY AND ALL outside influences? It's not created by repetition and normalities?
