Your Baby Can Read
So i've been thinking about this video since I was pregnant with my son and was wondering who has purchased, knows someone or thought about buying this for their child. I'm stuck and not sure if I should or want to get it. I see the ABCmouse commercial and I want to get it but he is too young for it, but I let him watch TV.
So what are you ladies thoughts on this.
Katie said it well too though. I think as mothers we want to feel like we are doing our best and teaching our children. You can do that with books. We've read lots and lots to our children.
I don't necessarily believe babies can learn to read but I think there is some preparation that can be made with certain children at a young age, especially with our first. I think it depends on the child. With my oldest I had tons more time with her and I started teaching her the alphabet a little over a year, if I remember correctly. She was talking full sentences early, telling stories at age 2 (I wrote down some of them and still have them - it was then that I said she was going to be a writer and she is). She learned to read at age 3. Our second was 4. Both of them read far above their age and grade level in school. Our other children were later to read. 6-8 years old. Though I started a couple of them at five and just let it go due to time or a lack of readiness on their part.
Ok, enough of my babbling......
