Young Knights are ripe for learning

Constant movement. Temper tantrums. Dozens of “why” questions. Overturned containers of toys. If any of these things sound familiar, you might live with a toddler. It’s tempting to label this stage “the terrible twos,” but at PDS, we couldn’t disagree more. The toddler years are a time when a child’s brain absorbs information at astoundingly high rates and makes sense of the world in the most imaginative ways. That’s why, in 2015, we launched our Young Knights program — to enable young boys to reach their ultimate potential during this critical learning period.

When it comes to education, the most important factor in parental choice is the well-being of their child. Parents are looking for a system and environment of learning that would best support their child’s learning style and strength.

According to Psychology Today, in almost every major study involving parenting, mothers were the only ones interviewed. This comes from an assumption that mothers were the key or more important parent for upbringing.

Unfortunately, it is hard for fathers to challenge the assumption since they only spend an average of 1 hour a day with their sons. In a survey by Bandai toys, they found that all the fathers they interviewed said the pressures of work cut down on their time with their sons. Of those fathers, 84% felt they spent too little time with their sons and 79% wanted to strengthen the father-son bonds.
