I like this quote from that article about her, “She often thinks outside
of the box,” Jim explains. “She sees things with a different point of
view, even when many adults might be scratching their heads.”
Well, it opens up interesting questions. I'll admit
that I don't know the answer to this, and not going
to take the time to research it on the web. I suspect
I'd not find an honest answer on the web, everyone
has a bias in one direction or the other.
Yup. If you interact with little kids you don't find any "thugs".
They learn those bad habits from their parents and parents friends.
Often the parents are thugs to their own kids and/or they act like
thugs in front of their kids and provide a thug role-model for them.
IMHO almost all kids start out as decent human beings with the
capability of being at least a halfway decent member of society but
then the parents screw them all up. Then the cycle repeats itself
because it's not politically correct to say poor people who can't
afford kids shouldn't be having kids.
I think some are. Parental guidance is important, but it is not
everything. There have been many nature/nurture studies and
discussions, but I know what I've seen in real life.
Many of us have seen families with two or three kids that have the same
upbringing, same chances for education, activities, whatever. One ends
up a doctor, another a scientist, the third one is in jail for armed
robbery and drug trafficing.

Heck, even "why can't you be more like little Tommy next door". I
never knew I was a "good kid" in some neighbors eyes until one day the
kid next door came over and complained how his mother told him "Why
can't you be more like Jimmy". The kid WAS kind of an asshole.
