Happy 1st birthday! Now it’s time to leave the nest

first_imgMercatorNet 17 Sep 2013….Daycare for young children is taken for granted in Sweden. Children are generally between 13 and 18 months old when they start. To put your child in daycare at two years old is universally considered late – a deviation from the norm.….The most outspoken critic of this system, Jonas Himmelstrand, is currently living in exile with his family on a Finnish island because he and his wife also insist on homeschooling their children, which is illegal in Sweden. But that has not stopped him from talking about the flaws in the Swedish system. Earlier this year he was speaking in Britain, where he described how academic performance in Swedish schools has plummeted since the 1980’s from among the best down to below average in, for instance, math. Discipline problems are now also among the worst in Europe. He ascribes this to early daycare because it fosters peer-orientation, which is detrimental to psychological maturation and learning. As a matter of fact, psychological problems among schoolgirls have tripled in the last 30 years. Could there be a connection?http://www.mercatornet.com/family_edge/view/12772last_img read more

CAF Awards 2015: Dortmund calm anxious fans who think Aubameyang is leaving BVB

first_imgHe did not turn up at training on Tuesday and the rumour mill simply went nuts. But Borussia Dortmund have quickly moved to kill all speculation that prized asset, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is leaving the club. Their explanation was as simple as it was sensible, actually.Dortmund said the Gabonese was en route to Abuja for the Glo CAF Awards ceremony that will reward the best African Footballer of the Year 2015 on Thursday.But by turning off one rumour, Borussia Dortmund has just fed another.Aubameyang was conspicuously missing from training as the team resumed following a holiday break. The wildest rumours ensued, with some media announcing his imminent departure.On Wednesday, the BVB therefore held to calm things down, justifying the absence of his regular scorer. “Working closely with the club, he flew to the election of the best African player of the year (in Abuja, Nigeria, ed) which will take place tomorrow evening”, say the Yellow and Black on their Twitter account. “Fingers crossed! Auba Then of course will be repatriated directly to the training camp in Dubai,” where Borussia makes its recovery.The explanation advanced by the German club might not be to the liking of CAF. In announcing that the Panther is present in Abuja, Borussia seems to have spilled the beans since usually only the winner of the title of best African player of the year attends the ceremony.But that assertion may not be accurate because Yaya Toure and Andre Ayew are both expected to be in Nigeria. In fact the German championship is only restarting late in January, while Yaya Touré (Manchester City) and André Ayew (Swansea), the two rivals of Auba, will be engaged in the FA Cup this weekend.You can be sure the speculation will not go away.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
