Johnny Football Star: To me it sounds like you're treating childhood as a race to complete, rather than something that could be enjoyable. What is the real benefit to the child of graduating at 17 instead of 18? Starting college 12 months earlier? Getting a job 12 months earlier? Having one more year of life spent on your career vs spent in childhood? By themselves, are those things really good? It's not as though by graduating from high school or college a year sooner the child won't have to compete to be successful at the next level - they'll simply have to compete a year sooner. It is really better to give a person one less year of what we would normally consider childhood, and is that year really a waste?
