Parents especially the mother parent want that their children must be graduated or post graduated very soon. In this blind competition, they don’t hesitate to ruin the early future of their children. The innocence joy of children get buried with bags and tensions. School, Home-work, Tuition, Home-word-cum-tuition work, and again in the morning school.

It has become the schedule for most of the kids these days. If they play games, they play them on mobiles/ computers. They are champions in cricket, chess etc only on these technical instruments.

My View – According to me, the best age for us to send our children to schools should be 4 or 5. We must not send him to schools just to get rid of him for a few hours. He must understand a bit of meaning of school and education prior we send him to the temple of Education, otherwise, it will be a prison for him, just prison.
