Native children: who looks like someone
From the very moment, as soon as it becomes known about the origin of the conception, the life of the future parents changes radically. It is not for nothing that the miracle of the birth of a new life is called the greatest miracle: no parent participates in the planning of sex, external data and spiritual qualities of the future person. And yet, every new person is unique in the set of one, the other and the third. It is unique, although the question of who the child looks like in different variations ("poured out dad!", "Mom is not there!") Will continue to haunt the newly-made parents for a long time. As if on this depends on what will be his life.
Is it possible to predict the life of an infant?
Astrologers say that - yes! And sometimes they are right. The question is, does anyone need to know what is in store for his child in the future? It seems fair to still believe that there will be something that will be, and nothing else. But to know who will be born, who will look like, what hereditary signs and family talents will show with time - this, at least, is interesting. And, knowing this, you can plan the educational process. In fact, the education of the choleric is very different from the education of the sanguine person, and the apple from the apple tree, as is well known, falls not far, and if the father of the son is good-natured and calm, the likelihood that the son will grow up is the same phlegmatic.
It is not necessary to guess, it is better to know exactly
How to find out who the child will look like: to dad, mom or a second cousin from Ulan-Ude? Actually, the knowledge of the school course of biology and the basics of genetics will be enough to try to "figure out" who will be born to whom. Only. Be ready to accept with humor all the discrepancies of reality with the forecast. And then the fashion went - just that to drag my beloved on the DNA test, and even straight to Channel One, so that for sure the whole world knew that you had a misunderstanding. Do not forget, please, that in any rule there are exceptions, and in case it is not clear to whom a son or daughter resembles, you can simply accept for the fact that you have an exceptional child.
In general, there is a theory that beloved daughters always look like dads, and sons - on moms.
Does science confirm this fact? And is it true?
Only in part. Boys are often born like mummies. Why? It is explainable. As we remember from the lessons of biology, a born girl can boast that her father and mother borrowed two X-chromosomes, which in some way provides the probability that the baby can be similar to both mom and dad. Therefore, it is unambiguous to decide on whom the girls resemble, even on the fact of birth it is difficult. And to predict this without reliance on other knowledge in general is an ungrateful task.
With the boys, a slightly different story. With a high degree of probability it can be argued that the son will look (externally) to his mother. Why? Because from his mother he borrows the X chromosome, and from the pope - the Y chromosome. And the mother of the X chromosome, praise to the Creator, is programmed to be responsible for the outer features of a person. Therefore, boys are often born like mothers. Although also not 100%, of course.
For example, facial features can be maternal, and eye color - paternal. And understand here who looks like someone.
I wonder what kind of eyes a new person will have?
This question can be answered almost unequivocally: the darker the eye color of the parent, the more likely that the son or daughter will inherit this particular color - the dominant one.
But here too there are options. For example, Daddy has beautiful brown eyes. And Mom - the blue-eyed blonde. In this situation, the child's eyes will be brown by about 75%. Why not 100%? Because each parent has two genes. And it's not at all a fact that both father's genes do not carry the information that was lost in his family from the blue-eyed ancestor. The combination of genes is unpredictable, dear moms and dads!
But if both of you are blondes with gray or blue eyes, then almost certainly your children will also be blue-eyed or gray-eyed. Sort out then, as you like, who looks like someone.
And who will grow in height?
With the growth of the born person, it's a little easier to decide. Existing in this range of genetic rules with almost no exceptions. The options are as follows:
- If both parents are tall, their children will also be tall. It is quiteprobably even higher than the highest of them.
- If both parents are short, almost certainly the child will not outgrow any of them. However, there is a very low probability that it will be lower than the lowest parent.
- If one parent is higher than another, then the growth of the child, as a rule, stops at the level of the average between mom and dad.
In general, dear moms and dads, is it really important who looks like someone outwardly. It is much more important whether a born person will be happy. And, if we program its growth, the color of the eyes and the density of the head of hear we can not, then we can grow it understanding the meaning of life and knowing the value of our happiness can. Unless we do not waste our and his forces on the empty.
