I was reading a post from another dad blogger here in NYC going through the internal debate as to whether he should or shouldn’t prep his son for the upcoming OLSAT and Bracken School Readiness tests coming up this coming school year. I thought he did a great job explaining his own internal dilema of “should he” or “shouldn’t he” at least expose his son to the concepts that are on the gifted and talented tests for New York City.

Here’s an excerpt from his post:

“So, I’ve decided to just give him a taste every now and then (MODERATION), with what materials are available for all parents in NYC, just so he knows what to expect when he does take these tests. The other day we went through that OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test) Practice Test. I told him that this was coming sometime in the future, and to just do his best. As we went over it, I was thinking how crazy it must be for those parents who don’t use these materials out there or aren’t aware of them, and how hard it must be for those children who just take these tests cold turkey. It’s just not right”  Read the entire post.
