    Child Genius, if you did not know, is a programme on Channel 4 where young children 10-12 battle it out to be crowned the cleverest kid in Britain. the show involves challenging children with their memory, mental calculation and general knowledge.

    What is your opinion on this programme?
    Personally, I don't enjoy watching it as it suggests that a childs intelligence is defined by their capacity to retain information rather than their creative ability. I also hate the parents attitude towards "training" their children to be super intellectual as it seems forceful!

    WTF!!! Isn't there enough competition between 11+ exams and getting (and keeping) a job?
How are you feeling about your exams?
