In brief: Could be many.

Our children model behavior of those who raise them, genetic or not.
Anyone who's behavior is inconsistent around a child can impact their ability to learn how to handle similar situations as they grow up. All caregivers (parents and others) need to work hard to be consistent, balanced and appropriate around children. No one is perfect, but we have to work hard on our behavior in front of kids.
