Minnesota Longitudinal Study of Risk & Adaptation discussed in New York Times opinion column

The Minnesota Longitudinal Study of Risk & Adaptation, a 36-year longitudinal study of parents and children conducted by faculty at the Institute of Child Development, was discussed in Nicholas D. Kristof's column, Cuddle Your Kid! in the October 20, 2012 New York Times. Kristof said of the study: "It found that whether a child received supportive parenting in the first few years of life was at least as good a predictor as I.Q. of whether he or she would graduate from high school."
