Nature vs Nurture
====== === ======
I may share my opinions on Nature vs Nurture

I feel like nurture is the one which plays vital role for most people life.
The one who stays with whom and what he think most of the time is deciding his actions.

Genetic is inherited for everyone physically and spritually.But when the children goes up/ moves on his/her life the surronding people/circumstance will play the vital role and it will overcome the genetic opinions

This is the reason as a childe son will accept whatever told by parents.But once he grow and travelled multiple places, he has a different views.I feel this is the reason why conflict comes between the father and son

More importanly nurture is very important because we may not be stay with what our ancestors believe that it is true.Becuase everyday there is a change and we may need to nurture ourselves to move on.

Please share thoughts on my view


so every weekend, my wife and I will take him to parks ..... Is it correct?
I think he should use simple present

Hello arishah,

You could use the present simple here to talk about a habit, but 'will' is also fine. We can use 'will' to talk about typical behaviour. It is very similar in meaning to the present simple but has an additional sense of 'we choose to do this'.

i didn´t undestand this question "The speaker finds raising his son stressful." Could someone, explain me?

I think that the author meant that paternity is not heavy for him

Hello minchas,

The verb 'find' can be used to talk about how we think or feel about something, and that is how it is used in this sentence. Another way to say it is 'Raising his son is stressful for the speaker'.

Does that help? If not, please tell us which part of the sentence is difficult for you.

All the best,
