“I share with other behavior geneticists... the position that parents in most working-to professional-class families may have little influence on what traits their children will eventually develop as adults. Moreover, I seriously doubt that good child-rea aring practices can greatly reduce an undesirable trait’s prevalence, whether it be low IQ, criminality, or any other trait of social concern.”

The Limits of Family Influence, Guilford Press, 1994
