The parents of Laurent Simons, nine, wanted him to graduate before his birthday on 26 December so he could be the first university graduate under 10.

So this is all about them. Poor lad. His innate talents should be allowed to flourish naturally, not because Mummy and Daddy want to signal how proud they are or have him become a flesh and blood trophy to parade around as they are here.

The kid might be clever but his parents are not.

More pushy parents... There's a shock. Do they not care about their child's mental and emotional development beyond academia?

We had a Maths prodigy here in the UK in the 90s. Was in University aged 13, and she flipped before graduating.

She ended up rebelling, working as an escort and is now a social worker.
