24 Incredible Side-By-Side Photos Of Parents And Their Kids At The Same Age


Family resemblance is hard to hide! Genetics are powerful when it comes to determining how you look, grow, and develop, and you get your genetics directly from mom and dad. Plus, growing up watching and learning from your parents only makes you that much more likely to pick up their mannerisms, along with a combination of their physical attributes.

If you are 30-years younger than your parents you might easily see the differences that define you, but side-by-side photos of kids and their parents, or even grandparents, at the same age prove just how clearly we resemble our family members.

These side-by-side photos of parents and their kids at the same age are incredible! No matter how far you travel, or how long it’s been since you last saw your biological parents, you can’t escape the similarities that forever hold families together as one.

DNA determines nearly everything about you, from your physical appearance, body build, eye color, hair color, height, and even the shape of your nose!

You obtain 50% of your DNA from your mother, and 50% from your father. The same is true for your parents before you and so forth. So while you are largely a copy of your parents, you are also given DNA that is unique to you. Depending on what particular DNA you inherit, you may look more or less like certain family members.

DNA comes in a wide variety of different sequences, which alter what you look like and who you are. Both of your parents have unique DNA, from which they randomly pass only some to their offspring. Siblings with the same parents can inherit different DNA from each of their parents, which is why some siblings look more alike than others.
