Adoption
Free text In the series "Working Together for Children, Young People and their Families", the author, of the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK, analyses "the way children develop when cared for by parents to whom they are not biologically related". At the same time he raises issues of heredity vs environment and the "interactions between individuals' inherited predispositions and the social environment of their adoptive family" resulting in differences in the development of intelligence and future education/occupation choices, personality and temperament, as well as perceptions of family life, conduct disorders and behavioural problems.
