There are two major influences when it comes to child development. These influences are nature which are traits that we inherit and nurture which is traits we learn. Although nature and nurture differ in many ways they both have an important role in child development, an ongoing debate is which one has the greatest influence.
Nature and nurture not only influences the development of children and young people but also influences the type of people they will be when they grow up. In the video “Nature vs. Nurture in child development” Pollack, S states that children are born with some traits and characteristics while they learn others.
