    Nature versus Nurture?

    The debate whether nature or nurture had the more effect on a child. The question I want to know which had the most effect on you?

    This is an interesting topic and it definitely depends on the person. I believe in most cases there is a genetic predisposition, however, the nurture plays a vital role in who a person becomes

    I personally believe its a mixture of both. There are some traits and characteristics that people are born with that they are destined to have because of their genetics, but its the nurture that can tame or enhance them. You can have a child that is hot tempered, because of nature, but its the parents of the child that teach them how to act and control it. If the parent takes the time to raise and mold the child into what they believe is the right way, then its the nurture effect that will be dominate.
