Nature vs. Nurture

I have positive and negative opinions about nurture. I think that parents and adults definitely have to guide the little children and adults are there to role model for their children. Without this kids would probably be lost on what to do. However one negative aspect is that adults can push the babies to do one thing just because of their gender. Of course the baby will play with whatever their parents give them because they do not really know anything yet. This influences children to believe that there are certain things that are for girls or boys. For example the adults forced the babies to play with the toys that are for the stereotypical gender that they are. Even when the baby refused to play with the toy, some of the adults tried to make them play with the toy. I think that this shows that girls and boys may like the stereotypical toys made for their gender, however most of these choices that they make are probably because of the adults.
