M1 :Discuss the nature-nurture debate in relation to the development of an individual In this assignment I will be discussing the nature- nurture debate in relation to the development of an individual. The nature- nurture debate has been around for many centuries which argues about the role of heredity and environment in human development. The nature – nurture debate is concerned with particular aspects of behaviour which are believed to be either a product of inherited or learned characteristics. Some philosophers and theorists have argued that we are just born to be the way we are. Whereas other theorists have argued that is is the way we are brought up and influenced by our surroundings that makes an individual the way they are.
The lost of Codi’s baby is another reason for distant attitude towards others. She had no one to go to for comfort. Not even by Loyd or her own father, Doc Homer. This then makes Codi create a personal wall towards others in the fear of letting others come in her life. However, Hallie never went through a lost of a loved one as bad as Codi did.
This is where we learn that Emily would rather kill Barron than to let him go. The ones who refuse to change with society will almost always find themselves in isolation. * Miss Emily involuntarily and voluntarily isolates herself * When she was under the strict rule of her father, she was forbidden to go out and thus being isolated from society has been a tradition. * As time went on pieces from Emily started to drift away and she follows the path of her
“So, you didn’t let Clinton watch any extra television last night.” Despite this Clinton is his mothers life.

Woman had it rough during the 1920s. Addie had very little opportunities and felt trapped in the world she lived. “She watches me, I can feel her eyes.
Her mother on the other hand, means so much to her, she doesn't want her to be alone. She decides to desert her dream, she still lives with Grandma, much like a dependant child, yet she knows Grandma would suffer from great loneliness without her” (Bloom, Harold. “List of characters in Lost in Yonkers. p67-68). Bella’s guilt caused by her mother’s fear of loneliness has left her short of any male relations.
It sometimes became kind of uncomfortable to talk about the topic of puberty with my mom and aunt since it was two different sexes, I never had a male role model so talking to them became very easy not that uncomfortable anymore as I got older. I believe talking with them and listening to the many advices they have given me through out the years got us closer as a family.

When I was in undergrad, the debate of nature vs. nurture intrigued me. My niece had just turned three, and I was interested in guessing how she would turn out. Her mother’s family was incredibly different from her father’s family (my family) to the point that my brother was granted legal custody of my niece. I had always thought that her mother’s genes would dominate her biology – she looks just like her mother – but that my brother’s environment would also shape her personality. It was interesting watching her life unfold.
