View Full Version : Reading starts after 2nd molars?
has anyone heard the theory that serious learning of reading and maths doesn't actually kick in until after the 2nd molars have come through, around 6-7 years old, and therefore formal education shouldn't be pushed until after then?
Does it have any merit, or has it been debunked?
I just came across it again last night, and I'm curious.
Never heard of that before- it sounds a bit ludicrus but than again so do half the studies and majority of them turn out to be scienctifically proven, don't they!:rolleyes:
Hmmmm... I wouldn't think your teeth would have much hold on how you learn. lol. I've never heard that before though... quite interesting.
My brother could read before he started school... because I was in school, and therefore he learnt from me.
What about the kids who start well before then? My brother was reading when he was 3 and DD is starting now and she is almost 4.
I don't think this idea has much merit.
