How Environment Effects?

The nature of the child and the environment he experiences are always sides by side in nourishing a child. It is believed that the company he keeps affects his future but that’s not the only thing that affects him, even his siblings, parents, relatives, and teachers effect sadly with every failure, we blame only a bad company and ignore all the others.
From History to the 20th century human minds have changed enough. Today a kid holds a smartphone that defines his smartness but here by age his simplicity, his curiousness, maturity, seniority, and awareness remain the same. Before that, his environment was limited to the society he lives in but now he holds the whole world right inside a digital box, connected to the hidden faces, a limitless environment that can affect him. It can do both; flourish him or ruin him.
