The ideal age for education


"One should always set his heart to supervise his children and be consistent in educating them, whether old or young, but the appropriate time to work at educating them to the fullest is when their minds are developing to fruition, from 16 to 24. Before 16 he does not have sufficient intellect to accept, and after 24 he won't listen that much."

(Rabbi Menachem Meiri, Commentary to Kiddushin 30a)

Have a great day,
