    Hi karmsky - The Politics of Denial has some valuable insights into this issue. The environment in which children are brought up definitely affects their development. They present some valuable insights. Altemeyer was also interested to see if there was any relationship between the environment in which children grew up and their tendency toward authoritarianism. Turns out that he also found a strong relationship. Not so much that they were actually physically abused, but that they grew up in a rigid,  "Father Knows Best" environment.
