Will discuss the two theories of Nature and Nurture and how they are similar yet different in their own rights. Does a child’s environment determine what kind of adult they will become or does DNA play a bigger part in the traits that a child develops? This will be shown through the research of the types of genes children are born with along with the types of environments they grow up in. Also how parents could be sympathetic and understanding to foster children that come from difficult environments from themselves and interventions they could use in order to help support the foster child better.
