Why are children FAR BETTER OFF intellectually growing up in an environment surrounded primarily by


adults as opposed to growing up in an environment surrounded primarily by children? There was a study done by social psychologist Dr. Zajonc who stated that children who grow up in an adult environment are more intellectually mature than those whose immediate environment are primarily surrounded by children. He maintained that children who grew up in such an environment are more backwards and immature in terms of mannerisms, vocabulary, and intellectual growth.

    EXACTLY, parents have far MORE EXPERIENCE & EDUCATION than mere siblings who are no more than children themselves but clueless, unintelligent people assert that children learn more from children-that premise is ILLOGICAL, if not ASININE!
