Once again we see that the cause for ills in the world and the downward slide of society can be avoided by simple yet profound truths in the ancient texts of the Word of God (Proverbs 22:6).
A simple test at the age of three can determine whether children will grow up to be a burden on society, needing excessive welfare, ending up in jail or becoming obese.
Scientists at King’s College London followed more than 1,000 children from before school until they were 38, to find out if it was possible to predict who would go on to lead troubled lives.
All were given a 45 minute test aged three to gauge … their levels of tolerance, restlessness, impulsivity and social disadvantage.
After 35 years, the researchers found one fifth of the group was responsible for 81 per cent of the criminal convictions; three quarters of drug prescriptions; two thirds of welfare benefit payments and more than half of nights in hospital.
But crucially, they discovered that the outcome could have been predicted decades earlier, simply by looking at which children attained the lowest test scores aged three.
“You get the best bang for the buck with early intervention,” she said. “These are all traits that can be controlled and improved upon, so identifying them in young children is a gift, and all of society would benefit.
Prof Moffitt added: “This study really gives a pretty clear picture of what happens if you don’t intervene.”

President Obama said most illegal immigrants still won’t be deported, even after the Supreme Court’s tie ruling Thursday upheld an injunction on his broader deportation amnesty.
The 4-4 ruling leaves in place a lower court’s injunction that held the president broke immigration and procedural laws by claiming the power to grant “deferred action” to nearly half of the illegal immigrants in the country.
Without the program, however, Mr. Obama still retains the power to decide whom to deport. And he said the millions who would have qualified for deferred action aren’t likely to be kicked out anyway.
“They will remain low priorities for enforcement,” he said.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday warned EU member states against drawing hasty conclusions about Britain’s decision to quit the bloc, as that risked further splitting Europe.
“We take note of the British people’s decision with regret. There is no doubt that this is a blow to Europe and to the European unification process,” she said.
But “what the consequences of this would be… would depend on whether we — the other 27 member states of the EU — prove to be willing and able to not draw quick and simple conclusions from the referendum in Great Britain, which would only further divide Europe,” said Merkel.
Member states should “calmly and prudently analyse and evaluate the situation, before making the right decisions together,” said Merkel, who will host talks with French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and European Council president Donald Tusk in Berlin on Monday.
At the time of the end, the King of the North, the Beast, will occupy the Holy Land (Daniel 11:45). Here we see that there is no love loss between the two right now as the EU continues its pro-Palestinian demands and Israel ignores them.
“The EU will continue to closely monitor developments … and will consider further action in order to protect the viability of the two-state solution, which is constantly eroded by new facts on the ground,” the draft statement says.
It links Palestinian unrest to lack of faith in peace talks. “Only the reestablishment of a political horizon and the resumption of dialogue can stop the violence,” it says.
Israel has, since the last EU statement on the conflict, in July 2015, advanced 2,410 new housing units.
