Only if they lived at home. Why put kids in an unfair situation? They may
have been reading at two, and may well be able to compete intellectually and
academically, but what's the rush? Pressures around sex, alcohol, and drugs
may be easier to handle when you go home at night to loving (read vigilant)
parents. Hooking up with a "sex buddy" and deaths from alcohol poisoning are
all too common.
