The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree


Idiom: The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.


Example 1:

The little boy saw his dad taking a nap, so he asked his mom if he could take one too. She said no and to wake his father, but when she got back, they were both asleep! "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" she said as she sighed.

Example 2:

Mother: I just got a call from our daughter's school.  One of us needs to go pick her up.

Father: Why? Is everything OK?

Mother: Apparently, she called her teacher a bad word.

Father: The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it?

Mother: I know, I should watch my language around her. 

Father: Well, I'll go get her. Don't want you teaching her any new vocabulary.


Meaning: The expression "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" means that a child is just like their mom or dad.
