Better to Build Boys Than Repair Men

Benjamin S. Bloom, professor of education at the University of Chicago, made this startling statement: “By the age of four, a child has formed half the intelligence he will have at maturity.”[1]

Maya Pines challenges parents to help raise their children’s intelligence “in the crucial early years when it is most malleable.” She claims that three things must be accomplished in the home in order to help raise a child’s IQ; namely, “stimulation in infancy, early language activities, and preparation for reading.”

Men that raise boys that need no repair get young men that go on to also raise boys that need no repair. If men need repair a country needs repair, for a country is made up of the men that lead it. From sea to shining sea boys have no father; young men are lost and for the want of good young men a country is lost.
