  • Parents of preschoolers know time is of the essence. I mean, if kids hit their sixth birthdays and aren’t bilingual, playing a musical instrument and reading chapter books, you might as well hang it up and hope for manual labor’s comeback.

    Early childhood education is the key to the good life. You must push as much as possible into that absorbent, still malleable mind.

  • It’s for the kids, Eric Clemens and Joe Bennett explained, only half-joking.
