Got a wimpy kid? Toughen 'em up, military style!
Principal Fong Yun of The Albert Kindergarten in Taichung, Taiwan, believes that kids today lack confidence and courage, so he set out to create a military-style training for children:
Yun is convince her training will help the students deal with hardships like tough college admission exams, job hunting and even marriage. Many Taiwanese parents seem to share her beliefs, as all the classes at Albert Kindergarten are full and parents drive from over half an hour ever day just to drop their kids off here. The children climb ladders, do handstands, backflips and all kinds of other exercises that even hardened marines sometimes find difficult. In order to graduate, they must prove they’ve mastered the entire routine by passing a challenging test.
