    Researchers show how a attachment based- nurturing environment can not only remove the impact of a child's negative genetic traits but allow thse very traits to have a positive impact.

    In this respect Collaborative problem solving provides a nurturing environment where the child is given a voice , the child's needs and concerns are being met and changes take place in the child's brain as the child engages in thinking and problem solving

    I read through page one but no further; interesting and hopeful information.

    It looks to me like husband and I both have dandelions and orchids in our biological families, so, according to the article, I guess that would be a good thing. :D
