Conversation starters: Comments from our readers

"My experience as someone who's good in maths is that the brain is not like a muscle that can be trained and made more powerful. Yes the brain can memorize stuff but it can not be trained into becoming a more powerful processor. Just like running a computer 10 hours per day will not increase its processing power. Hence my recipe for my small kids is to let them enjoy life."
