If a primary caretaker has a negative attitude toward their child, it increases the risk that their child will grow up hostile towards others. It’s not just aggression toward others that results from child abuse; a large number of children raised by abusive parents also harm themselves. The reason for this negative behavior is the children do not learn appropriate techniques for handling life’s disappointments. If you aren’t raised with coping skills, you’re more than likely to act ‘inappropriately’ than if you have developed more reasonable approaches. The effect of poor parenting as reported by Dr. Geoffrey Dahmer in “The Bully Papers”, is that everyone gets the child they deserve.

Good to see you working on this, Wildwood, but you’ve left way too many errors on the table. Your singular subject, caretaker, disagrees with the plural pronouns. You’ve left in banned 2nd-person pronouns, your quotation marks fail, the comma is misplaced, and everyone is singular. There may be other errors too; I spotted these in a breeze-through.
Don’t spoil your holiday with grammar exercises, but do fix these problems. More importantly, learn why they’re errors and refrain from making them in your writing.
