Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Hi and welcome. I'm a Licensed Master Social Worker with 20+ years experience working with individuals and families. I am also a mom of twins.
In my opinion the interest will come when he is ready. Often as parents we feel the pressure to force interest or to get them to know their alphabet and colors and so forth, but all kids develop at their own pace.
do you have concerns that he is not capable of learning or just isnt showing the interest yet.
just isnt showing the interest yet.
what is essential at this age for him to learn
Sometimes just sitting alongside him and writing the letters may get his interest rather than trying to include him. If he sees you doing it then he may want to as well.
is he in any type of school yet?
ok.. i will try this
yes pre school
I might ask the teachers if he has an interest there because many times they show interest in school but not at home with us. That is very normal
ok... thank for making me little worry free
thank you so much
It is my pleasure. All is fine. Touch base with his teachers and something tells me if he were showing any problems they would have mentioned it.
let me know at any time how he s doing
sure jen :)
