Isn’t it amazing how you can identify your little ones’ personalities from such a young age? With my crew of three—ages 7, 4 and 1—I can already pinpoint which will be the sensitive child, the “wild child” and the easy-go-lucky, classic third child. There are plenty of scientific arguments to back both sides of the nature vs. nurture debate. To me, my children’s inherent personalities make a good argument for “team nature”.
It’s a beautiful thing to witness how our children were made to be and meant to be. I love to watch their individual personalities flourish. Just the other day, my son’s teacher told me “he loves to be the clown.” I confessed that I was voted class clown as my high school senior superlative. I guess that’s another check in the team nature column.
