About competitive kindergarten. I cannot believe that such stress is good for small children. Share

This isn't just kindergarten -- I've read comments on Facebook from my friends trying to get their children into competitive PRE-school. I find it all very nauseating.

I would not have believed people would go to this extent except for having witnessed it first hand.

One of my first part-time job was at a nursery school, giving the children their practice tests and interviews. There was one little girl who was frightened to death of me (and we soon learned, of all strangers), and her mother and the nursery school principal drew up an elaborate plan to make sure the little girl wouldn't crack when her real test and interview came. I have no idea whether it worked.
