The nature versus nurture debate is about the relative influence of an individual’s innate attributes as opposed to the experiences from the environment one is brought up in, in determining individual differences in physical and behavioral traits. The philosophy that humans acquire all or most of their behavioral traits from “nurture” is known as tabula rasa (“blank slate”).

In recent years, both types of factors have come to be recognized as playing interacting roles in development. So several modern psychologists consider the question naive and representing an outdated state of knowledge. The famous psychologist Donald Hebb is said to have once answered a journalist’s question of “which, nature or nurture, contributes more to personality?” by asking in response, “which contributes more to the area of a rectangle, its length or its width?”.

What is it? In the “nature vs nurture” debate, nature refers to an individual’s innate qualities (nativism). In the “nature vs nurture” debate, nurture refers to personal experiences (i.e. empiricism or behaviorism).
Example Nature is your genes. The physical and personality traits determined by your genes stay the same irrespective of where you were born and raised. Nurture refers to your childhood, or how you were brought up. Someone could be born with genes to give them a normal height, but be malnourished in childhood, resulting in stunted growth and a failure to develop as expected.

Where did you come from, baby dear? Out of the everywhere into here.

Where did you get your eyes so blue? Out of the sky as I came through.

What makes the light in them sparkle and spin? Some of the starry spikes left in.

Where did you get that little tear? I found it waiting when I got here.

What makes your forehead so smooth and high? A soft hand stroked it as I went by.

What makes your cheek like a warm white rose? I saw something better than anyone knows.

Whence that three-cornered smile of bliss? Three angels gave me at once a kiss.

Where did you get this pearly ear? God spoke, and it came out to hear.

Where did you get those arms and hands? Love made itself into hooks and bands.

Feet, whence did you come, you darling things? From the same box as the cherubs’ wings.

How did they all just come to be you? God thought about me, and so I grew.

But how did you come to us, you dear? God thought about you, and so I am here

Poetry about babies are some of the most popular poems that are written.
There is something about interacting with a baby that ignites something magical in all of us.
They stare at us with inquisitive eyes curious about everything that is happening in their world.
We look into their eyes and we remember a time before we were sure we had seen everything meaningful in life.
They are us in miniature.
We look at their tiny features and their chubby little bodies and we can’t help but smile.
Interacting with a  baby can be truly miraculous


A poem about my innocent little man.

Little Bed

Here I lie safe in my little bed
My small hands tucked under my head
I sleep so content in my growing love
Knowing that my parents are standing above watching out for me so that I can grow
They love me so much, this I surely know
When I open my eyes, first thing I’ll see will be my Mom and Dad standing over me
From them I’ll learn what is right and wrong
And then I will grow so big and be so strong
Then, when I’m bigger I will be so good just like my parents knew, I always would

baby girl

A father promises to his little baby girl that she will always be “daddy’s little angel”.

Daddy’s Little Angel

When you were born you filled my heart with pride, And I was overcome by the joy I felt inside.
As I held you in my arms that very first day, I knew I would never let any harm come your way.
With your tiny little hands and tiny little feet,
Every time I look at you my heart skips a beat.
As I watch you sleep in the middle of the night,
I hope and pray I will do everything right.
I know I may make some mistakes along the way,
But I promise to do my best not to every single day.
I often wonder what you will grow up to be,
But whatever you become will be fine with me.
So whatever you may decide to do in your life,
Maybe an astronaut, a lawyer, or even a doctor’s wife.
I can say this without any doubt at all,
I will always be there to catch you if you fall.
And another promise I make to you from me,
Daddy’s little angel you will always be.

A gift given from God above is sent to parents, it is a child to love.

Thank You God

Sent straight from heaven up above
Came an angel for me to love
To hold and rock and kiss good night
To wrap my arms around real tight
To cuddle & nurture and watch him play
To kiss his boo-boo’s all away
To keep him safe and warm & count all his toes
To hold the tissue for him when he blows his little nose
To laugh at his jokes,to clap as he sings
To tell him all the joy in my life that he brings
To clean up his play dough, to pull his legos apart
To pin up his drawings and tell him it’s art
To watch his first day of school on the bus all alone
To fight back the tears as I make my way back home
To applaud real loud when he’s in his first play
To help him with his homework at the end of his day
To adore & cherish and watch him grow
To guide and teach him all that I know
To see him through good times & help him through bad
To share in his happiness and cry when he’s sad
To hold him close and be by his side
To watch him through life as my heart fills with pride
To help him with decisions, the best that I can
To know that someday he’ll be a fine young man

I Love You

I love your brown eyes I love your button nose
I love your messy morning hair and your teeny, tiny toes
I love your big bright smile and your little pearly whites
I love your pointy chin and your silky smooth skin
I love your long little fingers and your chubby little cheeks
I love your ducky walk and your never ending talk
I love it when you sing and start splashing the bath
I love it when you sleep snuggled in my arms
I love you with all my heart no matter what it may be Sometimes
I love for no reason and sometime because your my sweet honeybee.

Here’s the New Baby-Trimmed Hat

Omaha Daily Bee February 22, 1914:

“Babies throughout the ages have had to undergo being carried in odd places, but the babies of certain Peruvian tribes probably take the prize for having the queerest perambulators. Below the Rio Grande everyone carries everything he or she can upon the head…

The Peruvian mamma, when she wants to take baby out for an airing, takes a basket that looks like an inverted peach basket hat. It is lined comfortable with feathers. In this nest she places the baby, elevates the whole curious nest to her head and takes her walk. The baby is lulled by the slight movements of her walk, much more hygienically than the civilized babies are by the violent cradle rockings…”

This can be displayed in the  classroom at the start of a new school year and chanted frequently. It can be  referred to if a child ever breaks one of the ‘Golden Rules’ to remind them of  the behaviour that is expected in your classroom. You could challenge the  children to make up their own verse, which could be added in before the last  one.

The Golden  Rules

Learning is fun When you’re at school But always remember The Golden Rules
When speaking to others Use a kind voice

Think before doing And make the right choice
Follow instructions And try your best

Do your homework And pass the test
If you get stuck Raise your hand Ask for help And you’ll be grand
When moving around Walk, don’t run

Be respectful….

The rules are done!

What can I do to make my toddler behave and stop the tantrums?

If you thought baby behaviour was difficult just wait until you’re little one becomes a toddler.

Often, this proves to be the hardest period of a child’s life for a parent to deal with. This is because your child has suddenly developed a voice and a sense of independence but not an understanding of how life works i.e. That you can’t always get what you want.

Fortunately, there’s a great deal of useful advice available to help with toddler behaviour, and here’s some of the most effective…

Reward good behaviour               Perhaps the best way to discourage bad behaviour is to reward good behaviour. We’e not talking about giving her treat every time she behaves herself but should give her lots of praise, love and attention. So when she does misbehave, and she suddenly doesn’t get these things, she’s less likely to go it again.

Making her do what’s she’s told               It’s important to realise that you can’t actually make your toddler do what she’s told. Ultimately, she will only do something if she wants to. So the key is to try to make her want to. This may sound like an impossible task but remember you’re much smarter than your child. For example, if she refuses to clear her toys away say to her, “I bet you can’t put all your toys away in the time it takes me to count to ten.”

Misbehaviour in public               We all dread those occasions when our delightful toddler decides to misbehave in public. It can feel like everyone within a five mile radius is looking at you and often they are. The secret here is to react in the same way as you do when she misbehaves at home, which should be in a calm but authoritative manner. Your toddler will notice if you handle her differently (and differently in this instance usually means softer), and she’ll be more likely to repeat her performance the next time you go out.

Tantrums               They’re not called the terrible twos for nothing. Temper tantrums may be a real pain for parents but they’re all just part of growing up. Your toddler is beginning to learn how to express herself physically and emotionally so occasionally, when she doesn’t get what she wants, she’ll bring out the fireworks.

The best way to deal with tantrums is to stay calm, let them pass and never, ever give in. The goal is to make you child see that throwing a hissy fit isn’t going to get her what she wants. As long as she’s not hurting herself, just ignore her. She’ll soon realise the pointlessness of shouting and screaming.

Your child lives in a very complicated social world. This has always been true for children: all parents can remember their own tears or rage at the cruelty of another child; all parents can remember wanting desperately to be accepted and approved of by other kids. Most of us can remember, at some point in our lives, longing for a best friend.

Things are even more complicated for children now, as media has introduced children to the world of adult mores before they are emotionally ready. Our children do not know, just instinctively, how to build good relationships with other children in such a culture of shifting rules.

Luckily, healthy kids generally make healthy choices even in the context of difficult peer situations. That means that if children have good relationships at home they have a healthy head start, but they still need your help in learning to navigate a complex social world. Some ideas on how to help your kids develop the social skills they need:


    1. Foster good social skills from toddlerhood on.    This is one of the most important skill sets your child will ever    develop. It is infinitely more important to her future happiness than    helping her develop her intellect.


    1. Support his friendships.    Honor and reinforce your child’s developing friendships. Talk about    them, remember them, create opportunities to play. Remember that    children get aggravated with each other, just as adults do. It doesn’t    mean the end of a friendship, necessarily, just that they need help to    work through the issues that come up.


    1. Model respectful relating.    Remember that your child will treat others as you treat her. In    addition to the obvious everyday respect, that means that you give her    criticism in private, not in front of others, including her friends.    Which means you have to find tactful ways to talk to your young child    and other kids about the way they are treating each other, to help them    work out difficulties when they play together.

  1. Teach your child that people are important.    All parents have to choose their battles, so put up with messiness and    dawdling if you must, but teach your child consideration for others.    Model it for him early on, praise it, help him brainstorm to solve peer    problems, and don’t let your child intentionally or unintentionally    disrespect another person. It you can’t confront it as it happens    without embarrassing your child, be sure to talk about it later. As    kids get older, you may need to be very explicit about insisting that    they acknowledge adults in their presence, as well as other kids.    Often preteens and young adolescents need to be reminded of this, and    to be given coaching on how to handle interactions that feel awkward to    them.
  2. Help your kids how to repair rifts in relationships.     When we think about repairing relationships, we usually focus on apologizing.  But premature apologies won’t be heartfelt and may    backfire by causing the child to hold a grudge. Giving them a chance    to cool down first always works better.Apologizing is a very useful friendship skill that doesn’t come easily    to people in our culture. Children learn how to apologize by watching    their parents. If you never apologize, they won’t either. If you    apologize graciously and often, to them and to others, they will too.    The secret of helping kids learn to apologize is not making the apology    into a punishment.
  3. Understand and teach the emotional intelligence skills necessary in all relationships.    Examples include listening and “I” statements, which will pave the way in all your’s child’s relationships.
