WTF are you fucking on about? Fucking load of the usual bollocks.
I'm saying the behavioural issues are genetic and inherited, not caused by helicoptering. ;)
You might be saying it but you are wrong in this context. Social conditions appear to be deciding factor as far as this particular issue is concerned.
I suspect that, as in many human traits, there is an interplay. Some children may be genetically more prone to some forms of neurosis, but the degree to which this emerges as an actual behaviour may be strongly affected by parenting styles.

But as far as practical advice to parents, I think it is pretty clear that parental styles which are smothering and controlling will be more likely to generate children with less resilience and initiative, and that a certain freedom to roam and explore is a vital part of childhood development.

Scot's point about bikes rings true to me - when I was a kid, I was off on my bike all over the neighbourhood, and I think that was a good thing for me. Back in those days, in my relatively slow-paced home town, there was not real traffic issues. It is more difficult now on the roads, but at least we have a fair network of bike paths, which our boys could use.

You think environment has no impact on behaviour then?

If they'd said 'correlated' rather than 'linked' I'd leave this subject be and go annoy you one of the other threads. :roll:
