Wolfgang  Bergmann - Leave Your Children in Peace!


The difficult balance between early learning and career stress

Today, children are pushed to acquire skills at an increasingly early age. Bilingual kindergartens, intelligence-training programmes, music classes, swimming lessons for babies: All derive from the parents' wish to give their children a head start in life – from the very beginning. Committed parents do not want their children to miss out on any opportunity. Yet, is it really a good thing to confront young children with a full schedule of activities? The line between support and excessive demands is a fine one, and there are many doubts about which approach is right are many. The educational expert Wolfgang Bergmann shows why early learning can actually retard children's intelligence and what children really need.
