  • I had a discussion with a friend about If the result of bringing up children is just due to environment of genetics.
    I met many young people from lovely family families with wonderful opportunities in every sense. Best schools, best life, best everything. And on the top a great love and respect from the parents. The result in many cases was a disaster as some of these children became real delinquents, with aggressive behavior and after all was done for them they were a real nightmare for their families.
    I met on the other hand children from poor background with no money or facilities in their lives to get anywhere, with alcoholic parents, with abuse as a normal routine in their homes and this children were real angels. Good behavior,good students, an at the end they become good grownups while the other ones were lost in life with their arrogance and cruelty.
    I wonder is the environment the one to make the children to be in one way or the other or are the children the ones who change the environment.
    This issue is a real mystery for me.
