  1. What if genetic engineering would make your children so brilliant and intelligent that they could not communicate with you smoothly anymore?

  2. In response of question 5 and 6:
    If I wanna use a safe medical procedure to genetically alter the developing embryos of my children, then of course they still feel like my children, if I wanted to look at them differently or as strangers, then why I bother changing their DNAs at the first place.
    I have to mention that at the first place, I do not want to genetically develop my children,
    because first I think children are special in their own way , they really do not need to be modified, the brighter future does not come by genetically modified children, If there would be opportunity for all kids to follow there passion and by much much better educational system, then brighter future will come.
    But I have an exception, if I am told that my child is going to have a sickness that would bother her/him, at that moment I am ready to allow them to change her/him genetics.

      * education system

      I agree with you on preventing any kind of handicap or incurable illness in the embryo through genetic engineering. I’m a victim of this anomaly as I’m visually impaired. However, I’m complaining about it as it’s helped me to go the extra mile and develop a whole new perspective on life.
      However, before the birth of my 3-year-old daughter, my wife and I were extra cautious about her health and we took several tests to make sure she would be healthy, as she really is.

  3. To the first question my answer is yes. every one always like to have something better. Having a brighter and more attractive child is a wish of every parents .
    But the question is how we can ensure that with manipulating the genetic make up we could reach the exact point and it could not terminate in more harms than goods. I mean that whether it couldn’t result in new kind of genetic problems or even if we reach our exact goal of having far better offspring, this could not result in an arrogant new generation that look down to us.

      * everyone likes to …
      * Do you regard someone’s child as “something” or “someone”. Someone’s child is not their property.
      * by manipulating
      * make-up / makeup
      * terminate in –> eventuate / culminate in / result in
      * Offspring is generally used for animals and only humorously for humans.
