Dear Mr. Peter,

Now I get it, as you tell me. So many thanks for reply me.
This is my first time, studying English with online.

In fact Nurture and Nature are two different words having their own meaning; nurture means caring of someone when he/she is growing while nature is God given reality.
Whenever I am overwhelmed, I stop my work/study for some moments and during this interval I eat fruits or watch TV or listen music that having motivational lyrics.
Oh! yes I was really surprised when my little cousin, of around 2 years old, first separated the seeds of Chiku then ate Its pulp.

Oh my god it is very difficult when the speaker said " eight months old " , I understood it just when I read the transcript.
it is like one word, thank you for this great site.

In my opinion, nuture is better for a child. If we don't have parents, we will have diffiiculty in handle a problem how easy. Their nutures and experiences help us go in a right way and be more confident.
If I am overwhelmed by work and stressfull, I will go to a short rest first. Sleeping may be good for me. And then I do some my favourite time-killing such as singing and walking. Lastly, I smile more before working again :)
Thank you for reading my mind!

My parents did the best for me so hardly I can do like them for my children now .

we have to know the value of our parents

That is what we called "Socialization" a long-life process in which we learn moral values, attitude, behavior & norms.

This is very help full

The continuing debate on Nature versus nurture is expected to last long unless a common scientific measurements are set. On one side the pros of nature are defending as the greedy usage of human beings towards nature are letting the world suffocate.
Most of the peoples who are under direct impact are the least developed countries people who are contributing less if not nothing to the cause.
But I don't agree with this argument. As an information age man, I believe technology has contributed a lot and still it is contributing. And as technology is the number one nurturing mechanism and backing the development and good life of citizens.

When you look at what has been in this world before a century and compare it what is really happening to these times, you wouldn't oppose such development to keep the resources forever. Infact, the way we are applying the nurturing phenomenon may have a big room for improvement. We may suggest a better efficient use of the products, but there is no way we can compare to the stagnant arrogancy of dynamic nature of the world itself.

With a great care, I fully agree that nurturing is giving a quicker response to our unlimited desires. I fully support the use of nurturing methods towards teaching a child too.

So funny
