One must wonder letting children wait until the age of seven to read & write the problems that could occur. My dd is only 4 yrs and has a speech pathologist on reccomendation of our Catholic kindergarten. She also has help with social development & has been checked for dsylexia. Thank god she has not got that. But think of all the children that are not reading or writing to be picked up on these problems. I can only imagine it would be harder to stop the problem once it has been happening for so long. My dd was only speaking wrong for a little time & we have to re train her brain! Now she is writing she can already write her name without copying anything, she's only 4&3mth nothing bad is going to happen her for knowing how to write (i hope lol ha ha )
P.S My ds is learning even quicker he is 1&10mth & the speech pathologist cant believe how bright & wanting to learn he is. So to everyone who thinks that you have to wait to learn I think that is a load of HOO HA earlier the better. As long as you let them be kids as well, life is meant to be fun. My kids WANT to learn stuff because we do it in fun ways but it is still teaching them to read, write, maths, music plus what they get at kindy.
