Children that age do not have the attention span for day-long instruction of any kind. Besides I doubt 1 year olds would grasp the idea of field hockey.

AnswerNo! It's far too much for a child of any age. It's great for parents to put their children into a sport, dancing, theater, etc., to round out their characters and also to keep them off the streets, but I just saw a program in Canada, that there is a growing concern some parents are filling their children's plates too full. Some parents will use these facilities as a baby-sitting service, while other parents simply want to be just good parents and do all the right things. A 3 year old should be going to pre-school and learning to interact with other children. Swimming lessons are fine as all children should learn to swim, but field hockey is a little rough for a 3 year old and should be left for 5 - 6 years old. I am a firm believer that children should be just children, getting their little faces and hands muddy, getting lots of fresh air, having a pet to tag along or sleep with them at night, and having a best friend to play outside with as well as either learning to fish with their dad, or even going with their dad if he's into race cars, etc. Whatever the father's hobbies are (other than weapons such as guns or archery) a very young child could learn a lot and have a good bond with their father. This also includes the daughters. My Goddaughter goes hiking and fishing with her father, coming home all dirty, but the next day is so lady-like and out shopping with her mom, and practicing piano.

The "Object" class is the topmost class in the class hierarchy. Classes inherit directly from this class by default; all classes inherit from Object directly or indirectly.

Classes are not base class of itself. Every class in Java is a derived class. Every class in Java has 'Object' as the Superclass. The Object class is the only class in JAVA that has no Superclass!

A derived class is any class that inherits from another class (known as a base class). Derived classes can inherit from several base classes (multiple inheritance). Base classes may themselves be derived from other classes. Each derivative expands upon the functionality of its base class, making it more specialised. Derived classes inherit all the public and protected members of their base classes, except the constructors. Friends of base classes are not inherited either. An example of class inheritance declaration: class myDerivedClass : public myBaseClass { public: myDerivedClass(); };

A superclass, also referred to as a parent class, is a class what which other classes are derived from. These derived classes are known as either subclasses or child classes.

User Avatar

A derived class is any class that inherits from one or more other classes, known as base classes. The derived class inherits the sum total of all public and protected members of all its base classes, including their base classes. The derived class is a more specialised form of its base classes. Any members of the base classes that are declared virtual can be overridden, such that calling the base class method directly actually invokes the derived class method, thus enabling polymorphic behaviour.

Yes, the word 'classes' is a common noun, the plural form of the singular noun 'class', a general word for any classes of any kind. The word 'classes' is also the third person, singular, present of the verb class ( class, classes, classing, classed).
