Interviewer:  What if you've got some really super keen kid that just wants to do it every day? Is that okay?

Heidi: No, the brain actually needs time to digest all this new information, it's working hard, and needs time to rest as well. Just like we really wouldn't want to work seven days a week for three months. That's the same for a child. We don't want them to get overtired and overwhelmed.
