We all want our children to do well – that goes without saying. We want to provide them with all the learning opportunities that we can muster: leadership and computer camps this summer, advanced piano lessons starting in the fall, science club at lunch, hockey Mondays and Wednesdays, ballet on Tuesday and Thursday, and on Sundays, organized playgroup for precocious learners. Of course, this is in addition to school and homework. All of this should surely set them in good stead for future success – right? The truth, in fact, might surprise you!
