Anyone who claims to come anywhere close to answering a question
like that can be immediately dismissed as a crackpot. There are
so many completely unstudied and misunderstood aspects of learning,
socialization, genetic predisposition, and blind chance involved
in child-rearing that any claim of any "scientific" result in it
is utterly specious.
