Bad mothers

It seems to me like this scientific study linking mothers who smoke during pregnancy to offspring with anti-social behavior seems to dance around one very big elephant in the room: Women who don’t care enough to practice good prenatal care probably won’t care enough to raise their kids well, either. Occam’s Razor, folks. Crappy parenting is a far more likely explanation than some sort of inherited “bad behavior gene”.
