To a degree, I believe it is nature, with nurture having some influence.
I would say both. My 3 kids have been raised exactly the same way and in a lot of ways they are very different, but in a lot of ways they are the same. My DS is very relaxes laid back kid and ODD is very high strung. They were both that way since the day they were born. That is their nature. However, all 3 of them are avid readers and it's something I instilled in them since they were babies that is a trait they got from nurture I thinks.
Both. We are not born blank slates, but we can be influenced by our enviroment.
