Fresh Take: Dr. Danielle Dick on "The Child Code"

Danielle Dick is an expert on genetics and environmental influences and the author of THE CHILD CODE: Understanding Your Child's Unique Nature for Happier, More Effective Parenting,a science-based approach to parenting based on kids’ genetic “codes.”


Dr. Danielle Dick is an internationally recognized expert on genetic and environmental influences on human behavior. Her new book is  THE CHILD CODE: Understanding Your Child's Unique Nature for Happier, More Effective Parenting, which offers a science-based approach to parenting centered on a child’s unique genetic “code."

In this Fresh Take interview, Danielle explains how understanding our child's unique genetic tendencies helps us parent that child more effectively. Our children’s genes lay the foundation for their dispositions, and they influence the way our children move through the world. By working with our children's genetic dispositions, we can support our children's strengths and help them navigate their challenges.

Turns out the key to raising successful adults isn’t to try harder to mold our children, but rather to adapt our parenting strategies to the way our children are wired, and raise them o be who they were literally born to be.

Find THE CHILD CODE in our Bookshop store or on Amazon.
