Prophet Muhammad (PBH) once had said that parents have an ultimate impact on child development. This is consistent with the facts that child development is influenced very much by the traits of the parents as well as the environment. This shows that the parents have a considerable influence on the child development. As young age is considered as a crucial period, parents play a significant role in rearing their children. In the family, it is the place where all aspects of life are learned and cultivated. This paper is trying to highlight the importance of family, namely the parents, in cultivating positive attitudes and positive behaviours in the child. It is believed that the child positive attitude and behaviour is closely related to their parents. Previous researches had shown that a child normally develop his/her individual potential through interaction with their parents and family members. The intended characteristics are normally inherited through intentional and unintentional attitudes and behaviours of the parents and family. Therefore, to develop positive characteristics in child the family should provide a good example and conducive environment so that the inheriting processes can take place. At the same time, parents however have inbuilt experiences of bringing up children which was traditionally inherited from their parents. This has made the task becomes more challenging. How this issue is being compromised by the parent and the observational learning which underlying the processes is discussed. Few suggestions are also recommended.
