When you have six kids

And all eat at the same table and all but one grow up to be respectful responsible adults then it's hard to blame their diet. Unless you are saying that the child is not properly developed which causes a special need in which case that would qualify as a bad seed in a different way. Wouldn't it? I don't know which is worse.

In "some" cases a deficiency of some sort could cause problems but I know plenty of bad seeds and I know plenty of rotten brats resulting from shoddy parenting. It's hard to pinpoint the cause in some cases but in others it is plain as the nose on your face. But to say that "Bad seed is an excuse for not curing... nutritional deficiencies." can be just as much a cop out to escape blame or to rationalize the irrational and is no more valid than saying that all bad kids are just bad seeds. IMO
