Nature vs Nurture

Nature vs Nurture

Nature vs Nurture us a debate that has been going on for a long time in Psychology. Children can have specific things from their parents and ancestors, but also have to develop many things in their childhood and further life.
My definition of nature in this case of Psychology is when a child has a certain, physical characteristic, ability, behaviour, like or dislike that they naturally have or got from their parents or that they have got in theirselves when they were born and that not has to do anything of the way of the child was being raised.
My definition of nurture is when A child has a physical characteristic, ability, behaviour, like or dislike that they got when they were raised or have practiced somewhere during their life.

The Nature vs nurture debate is about whether certain things or behaviours that children have are nature or just nurture. Psychological studies conducted by Heinz show that children from specific genders which in this case monkeys, many times like toys that are typically for their gender, this was clear because most of the female monkeys got the girly and pink toys while the boys got the boy toys like trucks and helicopters. This clearly shows that in most cases, it is in our genes which kind of toys and things we like to have and play with which clearly shows we do these things and like those things from our nature.
Also a Psychological experiment conducted by Cambridge University shows that adults and parents give the children toys according to their gender because if they heard a specific child was a boy, they would give the kid boy toys and with girls the same. But the thing that they did was that they switched some boys and girls around and said that it was a girl while it was a boy and the same for the opposite gender. The adults got toys for boys when they thought it was a boy and the same for when they thought the baby was a girl. In some cases the children clearly didn’t like the other toys which is partially nature but as you can see, the parents also stereotype what the babies like by their gender which is clearly a part of nurture.
