Juvenile Delinquency and Nature versus Nurture

Is the risk of child developing delinquent behavior encoded in his/her genes, or is it a matter of upbringing? Or both? Learn more about juvenile delinquency and nature versus nurture.

Angel Flores's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:08 PM

I found the nature versus nurture issue interesting when tied to juvenile delinquency. The article discusses whether juvenile delinquency is due to nature (genetics) or nurture (environment). From reading this I can easily see how both genetics and enviornment play into the actions of teenagers. It is mentioned that one could have more of an affect than the other.

Cleverer still - Geniuses are getting brighter. Girls are not as far behind boys as they used to be | Nature versus Nurture | Scoop.it

SCIENCE has few more controversial topics than human intelligence—in particular, whether variations in it are a result of nature or nurture, and especially whether such variations differ between the sexes. The mines in this field can blow up an entire career, as Larry Summers found out in 2005 when he spoke of the hypothesis that the mathematical aptitude needed for physics and engineering, as well as for maths itself, is innately rarer in women than in men. He resigned as president of Harvard University shortly afterwards.

Do we become empathetic human beings by nature or nurture? Dr. Perri Klass, a primary care pediatrician, explored the topic in "Understanding How Children Develop Empathy," a recent article in The New York Times.

Decisions to act out of kindness, compassion, and concern confront us regularly in our lives. They vary in scale and impact, from the choice to hold the door to choosing to help someone in grave danger.

In moments of empathy, our emotions go a step further. Beyond sympathy, empathy allows us to share and experience the emotions of another.

Dr. Perri Klass is a primary care pediatrician and the author of a recent article in The New York Times, “Understanding How Children Develop Empathy.”

Do You Have the Moral Compass of a Toddler?  | Floating University | Big Think | Nature versus Nurture | Scoop.it

What's the Big Idea?

Are we born with a sense of morality? Or is ethical awareness something we arrive at only as we age? Like nature versus nurture, this is a question so loaded it's become a philosophical exercise as much as a basis for scientific inquiry.

Scientists have long pointed to identical twins to show that genes reign supreme in the battle of nature versus nurture. But a growing body of research suggests another factor, called epigenetics, may change how those genes are expressed.
