    That's a lot of text. I think I'll skip it and just go straight back to work, thanks for the link!

    Well I like the very idea itself - helping your child become genius, but I can see this going quite bad very easily.

    Parents with high expectations that instead of doing it themselves and spending time with their children just send them up to additional courses and lessons ripping them out of childhood.

    The integral parts of process that Susan Polgar's father was conducting is that he did it himself. Because children can enjoy anything as long as they spend time with their parents. Its something that many "oh-i-want-a-child-prodigy" parents forget...
