The Jungle Book (Disney’s)

Bagheera and Baloo love Mowgli, yet each has a different idea about what would be best for his future. Although Bagheera’s approach seems harsh while Baloo’s appears idyllic, what do you think the results of each method would be? Why is the hard way often the best way?

Psychologists often debate over what has more influence in our lives: Nature (what we are born like) or nurture (how we are raised). This tug-of-war is played out in the extreme case presented here because Mowgli was born human, yet raised as a wolf. Which of these two factors has the greatest influence on who you are?
