 Good Parenting Nurtures Good Genes and Lowers Power of Dangerous Ones

Parenting the right way can make all the difference to a child's growth and now we have research to back this well-known theory.Good parenting can go a long way in enabling good physical and emotional health in children. Though it may sound clichéd, there is a world of truth in this statement.

Nurture can go a long way in correcting some of the genetic anomalies and in this respect good parenting helps protect children against the effects of bad genes.


Researchers said that a healthy diet, adequate and proper stimulation can help switch off genes that can cause physical and mental illness.

In a phenomenon known as epigenetics, these switches can ensure healthy development which can be adversely affected by bad environmental influences like pollution, toxic chemicals, diet and lifestyle.
