The problem with 'my kid can scuba dive--therefore all kids can scuba dive'...

Sure there are kids that can dive--I was one of them starting at age 8. I was also driving a car at age 10. So should we change existing laws to invite all kids to become drivers because a few are mature enough at age 10 or 12 or 14 to do so safely? The issue is not whether a few exceptional kids can scuba dive; it's whether certification agencies should be inviting ALL CHILDREN to take the plunge in order to grow the industry.
