Turner's Model

Nurturing has a better chance of teaching human behavior to Feral Children given their natural environment because human behavior, as observed with feral children, is not an innate behavior but rather learned.
Nature VS Nurture Definition
The Crisis is where the Nature-Nurture debate comes in. Trying to figure out the best way to teach human behavior to Feral Children.

Scholarly and popular discussion about nature and nurture relates to the relative importance of an individual's innate qualities "nature" as compared to an individual's personal experiences ("nurture" in the sense of behaviorism) in causing individual differences in physical and behavioral traits.
What are Feral Children?
A feral child (also called wild child) is a human child who has lived isolated from human contact from a very young age, and has no (or little) experience of human care, loving or social behavior, and crucially, of human language. Some feral children have been confined by people (usually their own parents), and in some cases this child abandonment was due to the parents’ rejection of a child’s severe intellectual or physical impairment. Feral children may have experienced severe child abuse or trauma before being abandoned or running away. Feral children are sometimes the subjects of folklore and legends, typically portrayed as having been raised by animals.
Nature verses Nurture has been an age-old debate in the field of Psychology. We are always trying to find out which way is the superior method. I am interested in seeing how human behavior develops in humans either by nature or nurture. I choose to observe this theory based on a neutral ground of Feral Children studies.
My Perspective
The Breach of the nature nurture debate concerning feral children is figuring out why human behavior is seemingly absent from feral children.
The reintegration is to teach human behavior to feral children and successfully reintroduce the feral children to society.
