Nature Nurture and Choices

I heard on the internet a doctor saying that you can't blame your parents or the Government you are responsible for your life you made the choices that created your life I agree to a certain degree you choose if you're going to drink you choose if you're going to do drugs you choose if you're going to study but Governments also choose they decide what investments to make they decide how many schools to create decision's that affect the economy you can't blame the child for not getting work if companies are destroyed by government decisions Some times the Parents make decisions when one parents decides to drink the child is brought up in a world of poverty Struggling with schooling there is no support from tutors alcoholic fights can limit the time for study The child that has supportive parents without alcohol or drug problems has a better chance The child that has parents with the money to support their education has a better chance poverty affects development Country's go to war because of Government decisions soldiers that come back from war disabled by PTSD Parental disability affects child development parents that spend time reading to their children affect their child's development social interaction friends the ideas of other children affect the child children can encourage each other supporting education group discussion can lead to developmental growth or they can encourage child to abscond from school children from gangs fight with each other bullying each other destroying self esteem leading to depression avoidance and at times suicide to say choice belongs to the child is to put the blame on just the shoulders of the child that is not fair and not the truth if you have to have blame then a percentage of blame lies on everyone shoulders Government decisions affect lives the decisions and attitudes of parents affect children The ideas of friends, enemies and relations all have an affect on the child fear of abusive adults creates anxiety perhaps that anxiety personality development Anger and fear appear to be opponent emotions when the child becomes angry it overcomes fear Nature, Nurture and choices even genetics the healthy good looking child gets employment easier skinny people a seen as having an illness Is the personality of the child fixed by genetics or developmental, strength and confidence coming from academic and sporting success failure, building anxiety, fears and phobia
