Yes, but the child shall always be strongly affected by his/her peers and the environment. It is how the child observes the things around him/herself, that determines the personality. A child or even a grown person who is or feels isolated from the people around him/her the child - or grown person - will have more time to think. Thinking about why he/she can't fit and thinking about most other things people forget to think about. This is why a child who is spoiled, or a teenager, or adult, who is spoiled with material goods or improper show of love, end up growing more of a corrupt or poor character. Because they have not been given the chance to observe or think about the things that "really" go on around them. What affects the growth of a child's character remains the same even for an adult. Tell me, have you (Qinqin814 or the person reading this) ever felt really rejected or left out, feel a little saddened or very disappointed, and began to think, "What did I do wrong? What does he/she do to make them more accepted then me?I need to make corrections. Is that "really" the kind of people I should be around? Maybe I should make a better choice of friends."? or "Did I really make the right choice?Maybe I should apologize. I don't want to ruin our friendship. But how should I do it?"? If so, (Qinqin814 or the person reading this) then add me. Let's talk.Sorry about the long message. I like these type of questions.
