things that make you go hmmm

from Arts & Letters Daily:

Suppose they invent a drug that enables your child to learn to play piano quickly and easily. Would you give your kid the piano pill?... more»

My opinion rests only with whether or not to give these things to kids. I would vote no, because it is during the childhood years that all of those brain cells are developing. We don't know what all the side effects are. If we want to mess up as a grown up and end up with some side effects, that's one thing. But if we subject our kids to possibly bad side effects and cause them to suffer later in life when, given the "natural" methods, they simply would have worked towards their talents, then it is irresponsible parenting.
