Let me kick of this Mother’s day post by giving a big salute to my Mom.
I am sure we all agree that mom has played a key role in transforming us into what we are today… even if we are like two peas in a pod or totally chalk and cheese. You would be surprised to know that it’s just not at behavior level moms influence us, but she influences our genetic makeup too !
Intelligence comes from our mom
How intelligent a child is depends on mom, and not on Dad….science says so. Genes for intelligence is present on X chromosome and women have two of these. But then things are not just that simple. Mothers do have two X chromosomes, but they aren’t identical chromosomes, and of course, they get one of them from their fathers.
