The Quot Violent Gene Quot

1st time MOM - July 30

Has anyone heard of the "violent gene"? It's somewhat of an "explanation or excuse" but could it POSSIBLY hold some truth? Both my baby's father and I were raised in abusive household but while I'm able to control my anger to an extent- he is not which makes him quick to get angry and violent. <~~ He won't be around my baby but will this so called "gene" be a part of HER anyways?

According to the movie "Bad Seed" - yes...but that's Hollywood. Personally, I think violence/abusive behavior is a choice. If you raise her in a warm, loving environment, chances are she'll grow up as a very happy little girl.

We are all genetically predisposed to certain behaviors and diseases. As far as behaviors are concerned, you could easily steer your child from a lifestyle of violence by raising him/her under different social circ_mstances.
