As kids return to school, debate is heating up once again over how they should spend their time after they leave the classroom for the day.The no-homework policy of a second-grade teacher in Texas went viral last week, earning praise from parents across the country who lament the heavy workload often assigned to young students.

Nature vs. Nurture in Psychology By Saul McLeod, updated 2018The nature versus nurture debate involves the extent to which particular aspects of behavior are a product of either inherited (i.e., genetic) or acquired (i.e., learned) influences.Nature is what we think of as pre-wiring and is influenced by genetic inheritance and other biological factors. Nurture is generally taken as the influence of external factors after conception, e.g., the product of exposure, life experiences and learning on an individual. The nature-nurture debate is concerned with the relative contribution that both influences make to human behavior, such as personality, cognitive traits, temperament and psychopathology.Nativism (Extreme Nature Position)It has long been known that certain physical characteristics are biologically determined by genetic inheritance.
