1. Genie was a girl who was found in social isolation when she was 14 years old. Her story was that she had no nurture in her life so she did not know how to act around people, how to talk, and how to pretty much act and be like a regular person who had the nurture in their lives.

2. Because you have no contact with literally anyone. You are all alone with nothing to do or no one to talk to for hours or even days on end. They use solitary confinement in jail for people who commit terrible crimes.

3. That every person needs nurture in their lives to be able to function like a normal person and we need it because that what helps us learn and speak and walk and without nurture, we don’t get that. 

4. It is whether or not we need nurture in our lives to be the way we are when we get older. 

5. Because they never knew they next time they would be able to eat or drink so they kept it all that way they had something to drink.

6. Genie didn’t know how to function properly.  She didn’t know how to speak or read. She also didn’t know how to communicate with someone right away and didnt know how to make a sentence.

7. It ended with Genie ending up spending the rest of her life in many foster homes, then eventually an adult foster home. 

8. We are really no one. Society helps make a person the person they are. We need to society to create personalities and how people should act.
