Advice for Parents: Media Skills and Optimal Braces Are the Way into your Child's Happy Future!

Advice for Parents: Media Skills and Optimal Braces Are the Way into your Child's Happy 'n Successful Future!

Der Spiegel explains why children who start school earlier than others often lose out during the school years. They are reportedly about  30% less likely to enter college later, than other pupils.

Unfortunately, there is no material about what can happen when a child enters school at a regular age, but then leapfrogs one schoolyear or several due to excellent school performance.

Whenever parents want to see their brat start working as soon as possible, so that they can at last pay off their ambitious homestead, pushing the kids into college at an age of two years less than average may look like a wonderful strategy. Besides, who doesn’t want to have a wunderkind?

But unfortunately, their kids often fail even harder than traditionally weak learners. They may become verhaltensauffällig (“behaviour disordered”) and are frequently disembarked at child or adolescent psychologists’ practices as a result. Arguably pretty often, the professionals won’t try to talk real sense into the parents – after all, they want to keep their business.
