A provocative, science-based approach to parenting centered on a childs unique genetic "code," from an award-winning developmental psychology professor and researcher.

With few exceptions, parenting books, websites, and podcasts emphasize the critical role of the parent in shaping a childs destiny. But the obsession with parenting ignores a fundamental biological fact: that genetics affect every aspect of human behavior, and every child is uniquely "coded" with predispositions that affect everything from fearfulness, to impulsivity, to happiness.

In The Child Code, award-winning professor Dr. Danielle Dick draws from her research in developmental behavior genetics to debunk the myth that parenting techniques alone can determine a childs behavior and future. Dr. Dick introduces readers to the 3 Es that underlie each childs unique predisposition--extraversion (Ex), emotionality (Em), and effortful control (Ef)--and shows that, in fact, the key to raising successful adults isnt to try harder to mold them, but to adapt your parenting strategies to the way they are wired. This powerful and fresh approach not only diminishes friction and stress in families, but sets children up for true, authentic success in life.

Each chapter unpacks the science behind this unique approach, and provides practical, individualized strategies for parents to support their childs strengths and to help them navigate their challenges.

Reassuring, with real takeaways, The Child Code offers parents an inspiring message: Their biggest job is to help their children become who they were literally born to be.
