Are people who's parents smoked in house gunna look significantly older than those who's parents didn't smoke in the house?
Yes: The bulilding blocks of multilingual children are consistency and exposure.

Phobia leads someone to believe that among our ancestors, those who feared animals, darkeness, and heights would likely live long enough to reproduce?
Irrational fear: A phobia is an irrational fear--we know what we fear is probably not dangerous. Behavioral psychologists view them as learned and treatment is to desensitize or unlearn them.
