Reminds me of 30-40 years ago
15 May 2018 | by johngalt-02189See all my reviews

The kids on this program are a joy to watch. Their IQ's are off the charts and the thing they seem to have in common is a strong family of a Father and Mother who care about them - rich or middle class as well as an incredible work ethic.

These kids want to get ahead and their parents support them. Very similar to when I was born in the 1940's before the Progs decided that families don't matter. Well, too bad some people still do things the old fashioned way and like it or not your children or grandchildren will be working for these kids when they become adults. Too bad your indulged your kids with so much nonsense, sent them to government schools, allowed for their self pity, entitlement BS and smart phone umbilical cords.

Reminded me of old College Bowl but this time with 9 to 13 year old's, but trust me you would lose to these kids every time in competition. They are amazing.

Be interesting to do a longitudinal study of them to see how they fare. Hey Harvard and MIT, you watching this show?
