Parents are hiring tutors and private academies to start teaching their elementary school students specialized classes in high school level math and pre-med/medical school subjects.

1. [+1,157, -18] Children, if you do end up becoming doctors in the future, your first job is to put your parents in mental asylums

2. [+958, -18] I think a child who grows up studying like robots like this will only end up becoming a doctor who views his patients as wads of cash. It's so important for children to experience as much as they can outside of education and learn the ways of society. This is so wrong.

3. [+783, -32] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ My friend's pre-med in Yonsei right now and he was a total game addict up to junior high school before he found an interest in math and started scoring at the top of the nation in high school. What I'm saying is that it's important to let kids just enjoy what they want and make them study appropriately. There's a time and place for everything. You can't force someone to do something unless they want to do it.

4. [+609, -3] Would it kill these parents to wait for their kids to at least graduate elementary school first...

5. [+544, -3] This is totally the story of a friend I know. She drives her kid up the wall with his studies. He has no time to spend with his family because his daily schedule is loaded with after school classes and tutoring sessions. He's an elementary school student and yet he's reviewing high school material. Of course, she's proud of this. I'm sure he'll live a happy life as a doctor for her.

6. [+529, -3] The greed of parents are turning these children into studying robots. There's a reason we have so many suicides.

7. [+378, -9] Who here actually remembers anything they learned that young? If you're smart, whether you start early or late, you'll do well regardless. Just raise your kids as kids.

8. [+370, -9] No country can compare to Korea when it comes to the frenzy parents get into over private education
