    Show your palm, please.

    It’s a test for tots as young as three months.

    Several kindergartens in a northern province in China are reportedly charging parents 1,200 yuan ($190) for a palm-reading test that promises to chart their kid’s “innate intelligence and potential.”

    Shanxi Daomeng Culture Communication Co designed the tests for children above three-months-old, Reuters reported, citing state news agency Xinhua.

    Palm reading has a hold in Chinese tradition, though the Communist country’s leaders have punished some practitioners of the superstition, according to Reuters.

    “This technology remains unaccounted for," Xinhua quoted a pediatrics expert as saying.
