MATCHES ALL THE RESEARCH: Kids need to participate in a hierarchy.
by Greg Hamilton
Socialization with adults and different aged kids (even sitting). This is critical and one big reason the scouts was important. Kids need to lead and follow and to be able to move around in the hierarchy. In standard schooling they are around their own age group and thats very unnatural and its not good for them. It also sticks you in a “position” possibly for life.
