Sadly, all my life I have not encountered a single kid who truly excelled (by an adult standard) at something that was NOT pushed excessively by his or her parents. Surely they must be out there, but I haven't met a one.

Anyway, changing the subject - I'm not ready to condemn government or our system of laws for situations like this. Think about the many hundreds, if not thousands, of falsely-convicted persons who have been exonerated since the advent of DNA evidence. It would be like looking at all those innocent people and saying "Juries wrongly sent these people to jail. Jury trials should be abolished."

One Question

Is not a child innocences the most important thing.
You are only a child but for a short period of time.
You have all the rest of your life to be adult and do the adult thing.
