    I think nuture as i think the way parents bring their kids up has a big effect on kids. For example if a family or theifs, and there way of lfe is to steal, and may they sell drugs. Then it is most certain the kids will get brought into this, and follow in there parents footsteps. Also if kids get in to the wrong circles of friends, this also has a downward spiral for the kids. I am doing ciminology at uni at the mo, and my work placement is at Youth Offending Service, and when you see some of the young kids and then meet there parents it sometimes allows you to maybe understand why they committed a crime, as their parents are dreadful role models.

    Need help with a class assignment...If you are serious, since this is a psychology question, you'll have a better chance of getting a decent grade if you consult psychology resources instead of this pile of human mind-spill.

    Great question. It depends on which frame of view you'd look at it. If you go for Freud, then humans are born bad. Humans are by nature would like to fulfill their inner most needs (ego). If you look at it on a higher level then ( i forgot the term) then humans are molded by their interactions with others and the environment.

    Nurture. Although their are some kids who are rich, and still shoot up entire schools of innocent children. So who knows, some kids are just crazy.
