The Nature of Nurture

  • Theodore D. Wachs - Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA, Purdue University, USA


October 1992 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Current knowledge about the nature of environmental influences upon children's development is synthesized in this volume.

Wachs explores such issues as individual differences in response to stress, medical treatment, parenting styles and teaching approaches, and examines such questions as whether there are certain periods in children's development when they may be more sensitive to specific environmental influences than at other times, and whether girls are more sensitive than boys to parental maltreatment.
