From Toddlers To Criminals

Researchers believe that they can now tell which toddlers are going to become criminals. A study done on over 1,000 children in New Zealand suggests it all comes down to self-control.  Children with poor self-control are more likely to have criminal records as adults. They also exhibit more health and financial problems.
However the researchers said the good news was that self control could be taught – especially if the youngsters were caught early enough.

Will self-control classes start popping up along side those tumbling, art, and reading programs already offered to the toddler crowd? It wouldn't surprise me.

"Will self-control classes start popping up...?"

Yes it would be terrible to start expecting parents know...actually parent their kids instead of farming absolutely everything off to a stranger.
