Nurture: v. to help to develop and/or to grow
Nurturing is a very important part of human caring behavior. When we nurture a plant we make sure that it has enough sunshine, water, and fertile soil to grow well and when we nurture humans we make sure that the human is praised for behaving well and we support the development of the human with education and financial assistance.
Nurturing does not include protective behavior which is also a part of caring behavior. Protective behavior is making sure that plants don’t get eaten by predators and for humans it is making sure that they are in a physically safe environment surrounded by noncriminal humans.
Nurturing plants, animals, and humans is very important and it is also important to protect them from dangerous circumstances or situations. If you are properly nurturing your offspring then you are providing them with what they need to develop and grow into healthy independent adults.
