Nonshared Environmental Influences on Individual Differences in Early Behavioral Development: A Monozygotic Twin Differences Study.

Child Development, v74 n3 p933-43 May-Jun 2003
Examined nonshared environmental (NSE) influences on twin preschoolers' behavior independent of genetics. Found that within-pair parenting differences correlated with monozygotic differences in behavior. For the extreme 10 percent of the parenting-discordant and behavior-discordant distributions, average NSE effect size was 11 percent, suggesting a stronger NSE relationship for more discordant twins. The NSE relationships were also stronger in higher risk family environments. (Author/KB)
