Another observation I've made about today's kids, is that toddlers and preschoolers in particular, are way smarter than kids of that age use to be.
They seem to learn everything at an excelled rate. And much of it they just pick up on their own.
Here's a thought. Are hormones enlarging their brain cells too? Seriously, what could be accelerating their memory process? Any ideas?
I have nooo idea, but I know what you're talking about. My brother is only just turned 12, (Got pubes when he was 10) He's short for his age,
compared to his peers, but eats pretty much, only meat. The rest of the family gets onto him about eating plants, incase of Scurvey, or some other
desiese related to eating only meat.
Though he's shorter he has an Amazing Memory! He's into history, and Government, and basically anything that takes focus for put into your memory.
(Or what not.) I've also realized that the things he's not good at are Logic. Puzzles, math, and such. But he took a 12th grade level Government
class when he was 9! He talks to me all the time about WW II and Weaponry, and just things that I can't even remember. And he doesn't repeat
himself. He always tells me something about history that's new.
I hated history, but my brother flies through it like it's Adding and Subtracting. He's got pretty much everything 'down-pat' Names, Dates,
amounts, Company numbers, places, body-counts. By the time he's 18, will there be anything left to learn from history!? I mean, he's passionate
about World War II and soon he's starting to go toward WW I. I'm going on 19 pretty soon, and I only just recognized my newfound ability to remember
things more accurately than I did when I was 16 or 17.
He knows alot about a bunch of other wars, and battles but I'm not sure what they all are. Bay of Pigs kind of short wars and such. I think he can
even name all the presidents.. Even now he studies about the occupation in Iraq, and past events in the middle east. He's alot sharper then
polititians, that's for sure.
I think it could be that he eats so much meat, but not enough vegetables, and there's something about the combination of Vital Minerals that's
making his memory stronger, but not grown in many other places.
Something along those lines.
Another thing I noticed, is I went to middleschool 5 years ago. I've grown about 3 inches since the Eighth Grade, and I teach TaeKwonDo. I started
teaching taekwondo at my old middleschool right after I got out of Highschool and the kids there were Huge! But not quite physically matured (Could be
because my own outlook on physically mature has changed since then.) But when I went to school there were alot of taller people than me, but only by a
few inches. Some of these kids now are going onto 6 and a half feet! ARGH! I have to let them kick me!
