Apparently, gauging the brain of a three year old may predict its future prospects.

A very easy test can show whether a child will grow up to become the bane of society or not. Approximately, one-fifths of the population is responsible for 81% of the crimes, 77% of the children brought up without any fathers in their lives, two-thirds of benefits that are claimed and over half the nights spent in hospitals.

This minor coterie of people which has a major impact on society and is a source of needless drainage on the budget was studied by researchers. Apparently, there chaotic existence could be traced from childhood onwards.   

Just 45 minutes is needed to arrange for a battery of tests to be run on a group of three year olds. The things which are tested include linguistic skills, motor ability, frustration threshold and impulsive reactions.

A generation after the test, children who scored low on them became a burden to society. These kids turned out to be compulsive smokers, significantly overweight and they also ingested illicit drugs.

Reaching these young kids and nipping the evil in the bud at an earlier age could lead to less of a cost to society later on. 

In fact, things could be turned around were rehabilitative efforts targeted at these vulnerable kids from the start. Almost 20% of the population is using most of the facilities of society due to non-intervention at an early age.

The NHS is filled with them. Criminal courts deal with them on a daily basis. Most of them face disabling injuries. Also drug abuse and welfare facilities are things these people are familiar with.

While the image of these adults as loafers and just lazy good-for-nothings is common, in fact they face genuine problems that need to be addressed.  

Their childhoods were not ideal since most of them faced real life issues like brain dysfunction and brain disease at a young age. Instead of playing the blame game, we ought to show some compassion for them.

The study took place in New Zealand. 1000 people were involved in the study. They were born between 1972 and 1973. Most of them were followed till the age of 38.

Those kids with low brain functions tended to claim benefits later on and were also irresponsible fathers. Smoking tobacco and piling on the pounds were also higher in them.

As children, had their brain tests been taken and remedies applied at a tender age, maybe they would not have faced such difficulties later on.
