    I think environment shapes the way we deal with life.
    I agree with this in the absence of medical issues/conditions. I have had the unfortunate luck of 2 reflux children. I am also, especially with #2, very relaxed as a parent. However no amount of me going with the flow, responding to his needs and not sweating the small stuff has stopped the last 2 years from being extremely difficult for us - non stop illnesses, hospital visits, asthma attacks etc. So there is such a thing as a high needs child that has nothing to do with the parents attitude. It is actually a bit of a cop out. My son was miserable for a lot of his first 18 months due to reflux, recurrent brochialitis and tonsilitis among other things and this has made him a high needs child. The environment he lives in isn't tense. It's exhausted.
