Mother makes us to learn in every aspect from the day one.
She makes us to drink her breast milk with love and affection.
She makes us to put first step forward.
She makes us to have first meal of our life.
She makes us to learn first by joining us in the school.
She makes us a good citizen by teaching good things and character.
Jai Ho Motherhood.

In my opinion the answer will be all of the above.See everyone has some impact on a child as he is not that much matured ;thus whatever he sees and listens always has a impact on his mind.
Mother is with the child for the most of times so her words and teachings decide a lot.Again I had seen many children immitating their father and thus father has impact too on the character of child.Similarly teachers and freinds also affect the character of a person.
