• When someone says monkey see, monkey do it means that people imitate what they see other people doing.

  • Children learning behaviour by copying what they see happening around them.

  • Copying the behaviour of another without reason or understanding.

1. My toddler has been saying bad words lately so I told my husband, “Monkey see, monkey do!”


2. Jordan has been hitting my older son, it’s definitely a monkey see, monkey do situation.


3. I am always cleaning the house and my baby daughter has been mirroring my actions. Monkey see, monkey do!


4. Ok, class, monkey see, monkey do! Follow everything I do!
