Two-Year-Old Genius Accepted Into Mensa
Every parent likes to think their toddler is a genius. But the parents of two-year-old Anthony Popa Urria have the Mensa membership to back that up.
Still in diapers, Anthony has been admitted into the high IQ-society on the strength of his 154 IQ, which is just short of the scores of great thinkers Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
So what can a tot with an high IQ actually do? Well, Anthony, who is the youngest Canadian to ever be accepted by Mensa, speaks three languages (English, Spanish and Romanian). He can also count to a thousand, recite the alphabet backwards and complete complex puzzles. (All we were doing at that age was eating Play-Doh.)
But before Anthony’s little head gets too big, he should know that he is actually the second two-year-old to be accepted into Mensa this year. In March, pint-sized American Emmelyn Roettger also got the nod. (Take that, Canada.)
What do you think? Should parents try to get their little kids into Mensa? Or does it just put unfair pressure on the youngsters?
