You are probably right. Children take their cue from their parent behavior, attitudes and whatever. Simple to understand, the child carries their genes. Of course, if you take the child out of that environment and place him with another set of parents, it could change the child because of the new environment. It can only work if it is done at a very tender age of between 2/3. Our son was adopted when he was 2 and half years old. He emulates our ethics and behavior and he is 52 years old.

Hope you don't strain your arm patting yourself on the back. Social dysfunction is partially a result of environment, but to label negative behavior as genetic and "curable" by changing parents is simplistic and naive. Narrowing the "cure window" down to ages 2 to 3, then bragging about your son adopted at 2 1/2 ignores the possibility that he would have been a good person no matter who his parents were. If he had ended up a criminal, would you have blamed his birth parents, or taken some of the responsibility yourself?

Knowing how cojef presents himself here, I believe he would've accepted MOST of the blame. But it's a moot point, 'cause cojef's son turned out a good man. Disagree with the narrow "cure window" tho, lol.
