Nature, not Nurture

Dr Veith has a great comment about nature vs. nurture in his own family.   I have seen this myself, and added the following anecdote to the comments section :

We had the same thing in reverse. My first was a girl. When her little brother was old enough to play with toys, we didn’t have any boy-toys around. He picked up her Little People mini-van (the only toy with wheels) and carried it around the house until Christmas came and he got his own toys. He didn’t know what to do with it, but he knew he liked wheels, not dolls.
