    "I found this very sad. There is absolutely an age that is too young to talk to kids about college. Fanning young children's inherent natural curiosity is much more important -- for their sense of well being, but also for their eventual college track process, as well -- than burdening them with strategic thinking early on. This kid does not need to be thinking about 2025 right now. I'm somewhat disheartened to see Great Schools post this piece. "
