A little of both thrown into a family.

Genetics come in handy when you find you need a bone marrow transplant or a spare kidney and family, if you're lucky. A loving and caring environment is the key to family whether you share genes or not.

Enviroment in some cases, genetics in others.

Both. You cannot help your genes, but you can overcome a bad environment.

People are the product of their genetics and their environment. If either one were absent, a family simply would not exist.

You can have incredibly stable, loving, and functional families that are composed of people who are not genetically related (or at least don't share a recent ancestor). However, the people in these families are still a product of their environment and their genetics, and therefore the family is still a product of the environment and genetics.

Both, depending on the case
