I was teaching him the months and days,...and I left them up there because we had a daughter....I use all sorts of learning tools.
he was reading at 3,....now he is 8, and reading on a 6 grade reading level.
He STAYS on the honor roll.
I keep my kids involved in everything I do....
my daughter 1 year old...helping install a dishwasher.
my son helping weld my rockrails
not many parents would feel comfortable letting their 7 year old use a grinder.
I read a study that said,.."the longer children crawl, the smarter they will be"....it makes sense....because when you crawl,..you use BOTH sides of your brain....but when you walk,...you only use one side..
Every time my kids tried to walk....I knocked them over...I wouldn't let them walk until they were 14 months old....so far...they have exceeded my expectations in development.
kids learn from their parents,....I skipped a grade,..and graduated before I was 16.
