According to the research of a King’s College London geneticist Robert Plomin, the way children are parented is less important than previously thought. Instead, genetics is the driving factor in how children grow up.
While some behaviors shown by children can be managed by parents, a child personality is already predetermined according to Plomin. A child’s academic ability is also largely genetically based he says. This point of view is based on previous studies, that showed 70% of a child’s academic performance is due to the genetic hand a child is dealt.
