    The Downside of Resilience is an academic journal written by Jay Belsky. In the journal Belsky mentions how some children come out of developmental programs more intellectually capable and with satisfactory behavior. However, others come out of the same developmental programs completely opposite of the ideal child. Belsky mentions how there is no single contributing factor to this division, but genetics may seem to play a part. Belsky then mentions the biology of the genes and two alleles. He explains how people who carry certain variations of the two alleles may lead to the person developing a particular disorder in the future. Belsky then mentions a controlled trial led by Gene H. Brody and Steven R. H. Beach affiliated with the University…
