Nurture is usually defined as the process of caring for and teaching a child as they grow. Often, it is used in debates as the opposite of "nature" (see nature vs. nurture), whereby nurture means the process of replicating learned cultural information from one mind to another, and nature means the replication of genetic non-learned behavior.
