Waiting for a miracle: who will be like the kid

To whom will the baby look like?On the dad?On my mother?Grandmother or grandfather?We expect a geneticist with nature ... do their work, operating two terms - the dominant (in other words, leading, strong) and recessive (slave, weak) genes.

What genetic "macrame" contact the unborn child, it is very difficult to say, let alone influence - even more so.But we still try to predict ... Ask why?Psychologists believe that the sense of pride and emotion experienced by the parents, seeing that the child something similar for each of them - a very important and necessary for the rapid inclusion of maternal and paternal instincts.Plus similarity helps people to feel like a family - and this will agree is well worth it.Although, this factor, there is a "downside."After all, if the child does not like a dad or mom, it turns out - his birth on family ties will affect not the best way?To forestall such a "side" effects of expectations, let's be clear.

strong start and win?

There is a theory that nature has deliberately mixes genes, helping parents raise a new man (and not a projection of themselves) and it is easier to let go of his son or daughter into adulthood.Most often, the appearance of a new person gets strong genes of all close relatives.For clarity, let's say that a strong genes are prominent features of appearance - dark hair and eyes, a large nose or crook, strong chin, full lips, big ears.

For example, my mother's round face oval, daddy's brown eyes, a dimple in his chin grandmother, grandfather thick straight hair - this set is quite common.There running the show such patterns: the gene that is responsible for the dark color of the eye is dominant.And if the child receives a gene from one parent, blue-eyed, but on the other - brown-eyed, his eyes are brown.Just as a guess what the gene will give each of the parents, if they have the genes for two?

standard scheme of succession is as follows: for example, both parents with brown eyes, but carry the gene, blue-eyed.So this pair of 3 out of 4 chance to have a brown-eyed child and only one chance - eyed.But then again - sometimes light-eyed dark-eyed children of parents born.So, everything is much more difficult than the struggle of "strong" and "weak" genes.

Joint surprises

Most often, say genetics, external data is not determined by a single gene, and the joint work of several, and the result can sometimes be unpredictable.Take, for example, the color of the hair.If the child's mother is "a strong gene" dark hair, and her father - a "weak" or light-brown hair blond gene, their child is supposed to have dark hair or "intermediate" color.And when the kid grows up, his own children have can be quite blond hair.Why is that?Because of his parents, he received both genes - and the "weak" and "strong" and "weak" genes can come into interaction with "weak" genes partner "cell of society" and to win the "tender" to place in the exterior of a new individual.

turns out the baby may inherit the gene / genes that got him from a very distant relatives.So do not fret at a loss, if the child turned out to be a redhead or kudryavenkim that earlier in the race had never happened.Mixing genes may present any surprises.

Moreover, sometimes a single gene responsible for multiple functions.That eye color corresponds to a number of genes that are combined each time in a different way.And yet the most simple pattern of eye color can be traced.Parents with black-black eyes, blue-eyed children have nowhere to wait.Holders of brown, walnut and honey eyes may well be blue-eyed children, but often still turn brown-eyed.Gray-eyed and blue-eyed couples are more likely to get the same kids.Believe?

growth issues

particular issue, because this parameter to predict particularly difficult.And all because it is very large in this case the influence of the environment: how to eat my mother during pregnancy, eating a newborn baby than sick ... But if you still assume that everything in the future will be well, have tall parents the child is likely to also beabove average.According to the rules of genetics, child stops on the average growth of between mom and dad.But if the baby is good to eat as a child moves a lot, sleeping in the required hours and eat right, he has a chance to grow even low parents.And if the child will submit to the basketball players - especially the wait "tall" indicators and "gulliverskogo" shoe size.

Read my lips ... and not only

curious that you have with your baby can be a lot to do, even if it is at first glance you do not like.What does it mean?

Look to their child: he may repeat your facial expressions: kid can just like you wince when to eat something sour, just smile broadly or bulging sponge when it hurt, just slightly open mouth in amazement.Mystic?Not at all!Children adopt facial expressions by watching their parents?No!After all, it turns out, even the blind children, who do not know how to look like mom and dad, inherit their facial expressions.

Moreover, in some cases, a genetic feature may be closely related to another and determine the features of the baby.

See how lie in a natural position on the top of the hair at the baby if they are twisted counterclockwise, then most likely, it will be left-handed, scientists assure that these two features somehow genetically related.Yeah, about how many wonderful discoveries! ...

Character Custom

Yes, traits of your future offspring also caused genetically.And also difficult to predict, although it is clear very early.Once the crumb starts to crawl or trying to grasp a toy, take the first steps, you can see what he is by temperament - slow and focused, my father, or my mother's, impulsive and unpredictable.

Although, of course, a child's character - is always a combination of genetics, education, and social relationships (in other words, relationships with others).For example, the researchers point out that many foster children adopt traits of mothers and fathers, which they have adopted.So, beware, dear parents, and try to show their best qualities.

What about intelligence?And here was not without genetics.According to some estimates, intellectual abilities are inherited with a probability of up to 60%!So when mom and dad with pride says, "good at math have a son / daughter - it's me!" - This is rational.

in the same genetic "sled" is transmitted and inclination to music, drawing, sports, dance, and so on. D. Moreover, parental genes do not overlook the color, taste, aroma preferences of their heirs.Even your favorite dishes can be caused genetically - for example, due to taken over from his mother / dad's increased sensitivity to all bitter / sour / sweet.

Factor mother

believed that girls are more likely to look like Dad, Mom and the boys on.This conventional wisdom is true ... half.In fact, boys are more likely to look like Mom.They inherit only one X-chromosome from his mother - and this chromosome is rich in genes corresponding to the exterior: the shape of eyebrows, shape of the face, skin color ... In girls, the situation is different.They get one X-chromosome from the mother, one from dad, so with equal probability may resemble both parents.

healthy and happy kids!
