Teach them Young
Parents at times find it difficult to put their kids in various activities just because of factors like timing, finding a better tutor and travelling time. But kids in the class 8 and above find themselves so much engaged with just their school studies and have no time for any other extra curricular activities. So it is better to put them into any class at a very young age. Kids who have learnt something at a very tender age never tend to forget them even when they grow up.
