In general, education is a process of positive influence of children by adults. Any action of the adults towards children echoes strongly in the child’s personality, causing other effects than those expected by adults.

The educational influence exerted by the adult is equivocal. It can lead to the desired result the one followed by the educator, but may have zero effect or cause adverse effects, contrary even to the expected ones. So, for example, the severe punishment of some deviations without gravity, although for the moment it solves their correction, can establish in the child the fear to admit the committed mistake by stimulating a tendency to hide mistakes, to lie as a defense reaction.

The lack of response events to the received educational influence renders only apparently a null effect. In reality, no educational action exerted on the child is deprived of physical resonance in his individuality, even if it is imperceptible or subliminal and difficult to realize, but that persists over time and conditions other observable manifestations.
The duration and depth of the consequences of influences on the child’s personality are different. Some have immediate physical effects, or not, but are followed by a series of consequences in time with cumulative manifestations in the personality and behavior structure.

Sometimes, the very influence for educational purposes by adults may be a wrong action, a wrong measure or intervention, or right in psychological and pedagogical terms, but applied in a wrong way. In a specialized survey, on the first place were the mistakes made by parents in educating children, then made by relatives, especially by grandparents and only after by teachers or other persons.

From the study it is revealed that these mistakes made in children’s education ​​are mostly the following: the lack of a tidy lifestyle, spoiling, excessive severity measures with suppression of freedom and initiative, total disinterest of some parents towards the child, arbitrary and firm decisions about activities and desires of the child, irrational and disproportionate use of punishments, prohibition of friends and social contacts with other children, parental socio-emotional abandonment. Furthermore, a lot of parents are under the impression that everything can be preached. However, some things need to be shown in order to be understood and implemented. For example, children can’t learn about health and fitness from books. In order to grow up healthy, they need to imitate the healthy lifestyle of their parents. You can’t tell your child to eat their veggies when you still don’t eat yours. Furthermore, sharing information about health and fitness is greatly underrated as opposed to preaching about morals and values. Nevertheless, a healthy lifestyle can teach a child to be disciplined whilst a healthy body will save them a lot of physical and emotional problems.

Considering all exposed before we can conclude that any action of educational influencing of the child comes from an implicit or explicit pedagogical conception of the adult, or from the idea that the influence exerted by the adult is positive and that it leads to the desired effect. The errors in the influence of adult education can come from improper principles on education, from misconceptions or outdated mentality or a misunderstood modernism.
