How do we develop our ethics? What are the primary sources for us to develop our ethical position?

We begin learning and developing ethics from early childhood mostly from our parents. They are able to “shape our most fundamental attitudes about what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong'”(Head, 2006). We unknowingly learn these ethics as small children. Religion is also a major factor in our ethics. Since each religion as there own “code of ethics” it preaches, followers would view those ethics as very important uphold. We gain our professional code of ethics by vows we made   to professional organizations and employers.
